View the Home

The home hosts a number of social events to introduce potential residents to the facilities.  However Eileen Carlton, Care Manager, will welcome enquiries at any time.  Please use the contact information on this web site.

Modernisation is complete.

Building work is finished.

Our 18 month and £800,000 upgrade is over.

The new First Floor lounge

Phase 2 gives us  wide corridors that are much easier to navigate and six new rooms with modern bathrooms.  The first floor has a wonderful atrium that can be used by residents and their relatives.  On the ground floor, in addition to the resident rooms,  there is a new medical room, staff room and disabled lavatory.

It has proved necessary in the building process to replace the home’s boilers and most of the fire alarm system.  Lots of other minor improvements have been made with extensive extra decoration. We can anticipate some minor disruption over the summer while a gas main is replaced requiring a trench near or next to the driveway.

Job’s Close arranges numerous activities throughout the year for its residents.

Due to the current coronavirus pandemic, activities in their traditional format are currently suspended.

However, Debbie Powell our Activities Co-ordinator has been able to provide entertainment at the Home to residents in small groups of up to three. Events and activities arranged so far and those planned for the future include:

Regular bible reading
Weekly exercise class
Manicures
You tube reminiscence – including our favourite songs
A virtual trip to the zoo
A virtual trip around the titanic
Wild presentations
Our favourite holidays around the world
V.E day celebrations

Whilst offering these Debbie and all of the staff at the home are exercising the Government’s guidance on social distancing. All staff are provided with full Personal Protective Equipment.

Debbie is also distributing craft packs to the residents.

Job’s Close looks forward to the time when it is able to return to normality and resume our traditional full programme of monthly entertainment for our residents.
