Nestled on the outskirts of the rural town of Shipston-On-Stour, Low Furlong is a brand new, purpose built 68 bed residential home providing excellent standards of care for the elderly, including those living with dementia.
An easy, 10 minute walk from the centre of this beautiful market town, Low Furlong is ideally situated with easy access to the countryside, as well the convenience of nearby shops. With historic Stratford a mere 15 minutes away by car this well-appointed and welcoming care home enjoys the benefits of a central location but with the calm, quiet charm of semi-rural position.
As part of a modern development Low Furlong has been planned with the needs of residents very much in mind. All bedrooms feature a very high standard of decoration, including ensuite bathrooms and pleasant views over raised flower beds - premium rooms even boast doors leading out into their own patio or the communal seating area. As you'd expect Low Furlong is entirely access friendly throughout with wide, spacious corridors contributing to the bright and airy feel, whilst still ensuring that residents of all levels of mobility can enjoy the freedom to move around in maximum comfort and safety.
Low Furlong has been thoughtfully decorated throughout with the inclusion of dementia friendly colour schemes, as well as both quiet and 'retro' lounges - the latter featuring decoration and furniture from yesteryear, in addition to hand-picked antiques which residents are encouraged to interact with. The innovative idea having dedicated street names and individual room numbers allows residents to maintain a personal postage address - enabling individuals to retain their identity and independence whilst still enjoying the benefits of professional care and support. Externally Low Furlong is surrounded by attractive raised meadow banks, planted with a range of attractive flowers, whilst a central patio area allows residents to enjoy the best of the sunshine.
The fully trained and highly professional staff at Low Furlong demonstrate the kind of compassionate, attentive and forward-looking care that you'd expect from a modern residential home - encouraging and actively consulting with residents whilst still maintaining a homely, calm and comfortable atmosphere.
- Low Furlong delivers high levels of considerate, expert support for a wide range of elderly care needs, including considerate provision for those living with dementia. We stress a holistic approach in which the 'whole person' needs of the individual - the spiritual as well as physical - are met with respect and dignity.
- Enjoy tea, coffee and lovely range of homemade cakes & biscuits in our charming on-site tea room. Deliberately non-matching crockery provides all the nostalgia of a homely tea room of days gone by. In addition, Low Furlong's own little shop sells a welcome range of items, including bygone sweets and pop, gift sets, toiletries and a lovely selection of greetings cards. Residents can even collect their daily newspaper from the shop to maintain their established habit of 'popping out to get the paper'.
- Low Furlong features a full range of stimulating and relaxing activities - including age-appropriate exercise - with residents being consulted and encouraged to continue with existing hobbies as well as making suggestions for future events.
- We strive to forge lasting links with the surrounding community, including local churches, schools, clubs and societies with regular visits and performances for the enjoyment of residents and staff alike.
At Low Furlong we understand that choosing a care home can be daunting - not only for residents but for families too. That's why we not only welcome but encourage visits.
We'll be delighted to provide you with the opportunity to look around, ask questions and discuss your needs, as well as chat to our current residents and staff. If you are unable to visit in person, we'll be equally happy to arrange a convenient time for a staff member to visit you at home.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Manager, Low Furlong
