Nestled in the countryside village of Bicton, Isle Court is just a short drive from the centre of Shrewsbury. The recently extended former country house now offers 79 luxury en-suite bedrooms with bright, relaxing lounges for residents to enjoy. Specialist care is tailored for every resident with a mission to make everyone feel safe, happy and very much ‘at home’.
Home from Home
We know moving to a nursing home can be an extremely anxious and emotional time, not only for the resident but for the loved ones too. We try and make the process as easy as possible for everyone involved and are there for you every step of the way.
Our Home was extended and refurbished from a country house when it first opened in 2008 and was further extended in 2018. With 79 en-suite bedrooms, many with French doors leading to individual private patios, our recent extension has allowed us to meet the local demands for care in the community. Décor and furnishings throughout our Home have been sympathetically chosen to retain that true home from home feeling.
Residents can enjoy the landscaped gardens and surrounding countryside as well as a range of facilities including a purpose-built cinema area, a hairdressing salon, vintage tea room, sensory spa and restaurant dining.
A resident’s social wellbeing is just as important as their medical needs and that’s why our dedicated Social Life Coordinator, Debbie, plans an exciting and stimulating activity schedule.
From Gardening Club and summer BBQs, to day trips to local tourist spots like the British Ironwork Centre, as well regular visits from talented musicians and performers, there is something for everyone.
Isle Court offers palliative care, convalescent care, long and short-term respite care and day-care. Specialist support is also available, from disability care to dementia care for those requiring more support tailored to their individual needs.
Our specialist dementia area in the Home brings Morris Care’s Cedar Philosophy to life – an approach to dementia care that focuses on the individual’s wellbeing and personal needs, as well as their nursing requirements. Whether it’s the job they once had, the seaside holidays they took as children or their wedding day, through the Cedar Philosophy and specialist training we evoke and unlock those special moments.
Louisa, alongside a brilliant care team, cares for our residents living with dementia. Here’s what she has to say:
“I think this is where I belong, I can get to know them on a personal level and they tend to stay with us for longer so I can really find out about their life background and get to know their loved ones. You almost become part of their extended family and find yourself sharing your personal life with them – I showed one of our residents my wedding album because she would always ask about my husband.”
