Clinical excellence, holistic care
Sensory therapies are central to our care. We strive to inspire all our residents’ senses through serving tasty home-cooked food, providing a wide range of appropriate stimulating activities including music therapy, reminiscence, our sensory garden, interacting with our Tovertafel, hand and body massage, and much more.
Strong community and family focus
We have a deep sense of community, and enjoy close relationships with local people, nurseries and colleges who visit us, and we host a Reminiscence Café for local people living with dementia.
Family values are at the heart of all that we do. Our team work diligently and do their utmost to ensure Moorside feels homely, welcoming and like a second family. Our inspirational workforce go above and beyond to ensure that their colleagues, residents, volunteers and friends work and live in a loving environment. We warmly encourage the close involvement of families of residents; indeed many remain in touch with us, even volunteering, once their loved one has passed.
Charitable values, providing peace of mind
As a charity, with no profit motive, we are able to apply our charitable value system, meaning an uncompromised commitment to care excellence. What’s more, for our fee paying residents, if their financial circumstances change and they are no longer able to afford our fees, we will use our charitable funds to top up, so they will not have to leave Moorside.
We care for up to 31 older people providing long-term care and short-stay respite care for people living in the community. The majority of our residents require nursing care, although some residential places are available. High standards and tailored facilities combine to make Moorside the right choice. We look forward to welcoming you.
The home is registered with the Care Quality Commission and has been rated as ‘good’ overall, with an ‘outstanding’ rating regarding the home’s responsiveness and treatment of individual needs. You can download and read our full CQC Inspection Report.
