Please read on to find out about the various types of care that we offer.

Residential Care

Our care homes offer comfort, companionship and home-from-home living, with a team of qualified, caring people to provide a little extra assistance should you need it. Residents can feel part of a supported community, with sociable mealtimes, and a programme of activities and a chance to explore new, engaging opportunities. As part of our caring service, we encourage independence, freedom of choice and celebrate individuality.

Dementia Care

Over the last 37 years we have been providing care and support to our residents with dementia, there is so much we have learnt. We know how important it is that family are integrated as ‘care partners’ right from the start, so that we can all work together to know and cherish the person behind the dementia. This is the foundation of good dementia care; person-centred care. People living in our homes have told us that our care home teams have the biggest effect on their quality of life, and become like family themselves. When trusting, caring relationships develop, the care home becomes ‘home’. Of course, people with dementia have unique expectations and preference, and wish to love life to the full. In our care, people with dementia can live well, with the right support. Our dementia care philosophy – through our innovative SPACE dementia care programme, ensures all our team embrace a thoughtful, kind and patient approach. 


We take pride in the quality of the professional nursing care we provide, supervised by registered qualified nurses. Nursing care goes beyond residential care; we’re able to provide clinical care, to safely support older people with more complex conditions and care needs whilst in homely surroundings where compassion and dignity remains at the forefront of our values. Additionally, our catering teams are experienced in providing quality texture modified diets.

Dementia Nursing

When dementia advances, for some people their support needs can change. Our 24-hour care, lead by experienced and qualified nurses and their teams, is in place to ensure people are supported with dignity, kindness and consistency. Excellent essential personal care is provided, in addition to an approach which boosts quality of life and respects the choices, independence and uniqueness of each individual. We offer meaningful activity and stimulation, essential to help people live each day well, and for full enjoyment of life.


Take a break from caring by booking a short stay care break at one of our homes. Respite care periods are flexible depending on your needs. Our homes offer a reassuring and welcoming place for your loved one to be well looked after to help you cope or so that you can go on holiday. We’ll get to know you prior to a stay and all make the necessary preparations to be able to settle in quickly. We’d be delighted to support you.


Runwood Homes offers short-term care for people who need extra support to help recovery following discharge from hospital. We help residents get back up on their feet and recuperate, with assistance on hand around the clock from our fantastic carers who are professionally trained in personal care and welfare.

Day Care

Our popular Day Care Centres exist to support the needs of our clients, and their carers, to enable them to remain living at home. Our aim is to improve quality of life and offer a sociable and friendly community and a wide range of activities and events to enjoy amongst friends, with a particular focus on the needs of people living with dementia.

Our highly-trained carers are friendly, kind and compassionate by nature. As well as respectfully tending to each individuals needs and wishes, from our experience, a whole team approach to wellbeing means that companionship and feeling like part of a family are second nature in our homes. Ongoing training and development ensures that our carers remain confident and competent, as well as practical and observant, in their fulfilling roles.

Wherever possible, Runwood Homes utilises award winning, Mobile Care Monitoring digital technology, for enhanced care planning, evidencing and aiding in continuity of care. This paperless system afford our carers to spend more quality time with residents, which as an organisation, we feel is really important.

The vision for Runwood Homes’ Wellbeing and Activity Teams is that wen anybody visits ones of our care homes, they’ll notice people chatting, hear laughter, see people smiling – being kind to each other and looking out for one another, people are active – doing things they are enjoying, people being engaged and interested in life around them.

Our annual Dignity Campaign has a different theme each month to ensure that residents and staff teams enjoy an effective, whole-team approach to wellbeing. This is upheld by our ‘Dignity for everyone, every day’ motto. The oversight and support from the Wellbeing and Activities Director, ensures that our vision remains a reality for all.

Each of our care homes benefits from a dedicated Wellbeing Lead; a person who exclusively plans and provides social interaction and a range of delightful activities, published in their weekly programme of opportunities. Our whole-home ‘Tools Down’ and ‘Forget Me Not’ initiatives aim to reduce isolation and build new friendships.

In choosing us, you are in safe hands. We have 37 years of experience in providing the very best quality of life for people living with dementia. Our philosophy is grounded in listening carefully to what our residents want from us – a thoughtful, kind and patient approach from every single member of the team. Each one receives excellent training in dementia care, and is supported by their home’s Dementia Champions. Our Dementia Care Programme is designed to support each resident with dementia to maintain their uniqueness, lifestyle and independence. Yet the support is there to understand how dementia is affecting someone, and offer each individual the assistance to overcome the challenges.
