Life in our home

The Mayfields is a truly modern facility with features that makes it stand out from many traditional care homes. These include spaciousness with extra wide corridors, abundant lounge areas allowing for privacy with friends or relatives, generously proportioned bedrooms with en-suite shower facilities, a bespoke hair salon, generous natural lighting and elegant interior design, which all combine for a homely feel. 

Recently built, The Mayfields opened in 2013 and is set in a stunning location with beautiful views of the open countryside. The spacious feel is consistent with what you'd expect from a high quality hotel with 60 luxurious, well appointed bedrooms on two levels, some with patio doors leading to landscaped gardens. Each room is decorated and furnished to a high standard with en-suite shower/wet room as standard. Each room also has a nurse call system, Wi-Fi, television and telephone points. Other facilities include a hair salon and a cafe area allowing residents and their family members to relax and enjoy a cuppa together.

The Mayfields is over two floors. Primrose is on the ground floor and offers residential care. Bluebell is located on the first floor and accommodates those with dementia care needs. The first floor is accessible via two large lifts. Each wing has been sympathetically designed around the needs of its residents. Primrose, with its numerous lounges and sitting areas and access to external gardens, creates a warm, inviting and homely environment. Bluebell has a similar layout but is decorated in specially selected colours and themes to allow residents to feel at ease. Bluebell also offers a trip down 'Memory Lane' to promote reminiscence therapy and support residents' overall wellbeing.

Meaningful daily activities are arranged by our dedicated activities team to keep residents active and stimulated. Residents can enjoy the landscaped gardens at leisure through the patio doors either from their bedrooms or lounge areas. Raised flower beds allow our 'green fingered' residents to enjoy gardening with ease. And life skill independence is promoted to residents who wish to do tasks like washing up, making cups of tea and preparing snacks for themselves.

Our delicious nutritionally balanced food is cooked using fresh produce. A choice of menu is available every day and special diets are catered for.

Another great benefit is having Long Stratton Medical Practice with its dispensing pharmacy on site.
