Cavendish is a Specialist Dementia Home
At Cavendish we specialise in caring for people who have dementia and this has enabled our staff to build up tremendous practical knowledge of how to provide the very best dementia care. Whatever the type of behaviour, we will have experienced it and know how to deal with it in the best possible way.The home has a real community feel
Cavendish's 24 bed size means that all the staff know all the residents and all the residents know each other. There’s a genuine community feel to the place and this really helps our residents to enjoy life more, especially if they’ve previously lived alone for a number of years and have been unable to get out much.It can be quite a revelation and we often see people really come alive again with their new found purpose for living.
At Cavendish we have a variety of room sizes and locations to suite all tastes and budgets. All room are very pleasant places to be with most enjoying garden views. You can choose a first floor or ground floor room (subject to availability) and there is a lift to make access to the first floor as easy as the ground floor.

Cavendish Care Home which provides specialist dementia care has a bright and spacious interior, with period features and two secure, enclosed gardens, where residents can enjoy many homely comforts and a relaxing lifestyle.
In November the Mayor of Gloucester (Mayor Brown) opened what is believed to be the first multi-sensory indoor beach in the country which engages and stimulates the five senses, sand and wind/fan (touch), movie of the sea (sight), soft drinks (taste), waves (sound), and scent of beach (smell).
The intention of the indoor beach is to stimulate the imagination, the mind and the awareness of our residents and other users, whilst at the same time having a calming and soothing affect. Through the beaches arousal of the five senses plus interaction with our carers we expect (and will monitor) an improvement in behaviour and well-being, physically and mentally.
For those residents willing and/or able to leave the home, our carers take them on trips to the local town centre, Gloucester quays or a quiet pub lunch.
The home employs a full time holistic therapist who amongst other things, provides aromatherapy, Indian head massage and reflexology. Other activities are provided throughout the week by staff and external professionals.
Nutritious meals are planned in consultation with a dietitian, taking account of each residents dietary requirements and preferences.
