Sharston House is a real home from home for the staff as well as residents.

Energetic activities co-ordinator Lynne Morrilly ensures that residents have a fun time with a range of stimulating activities from “knit and natter” and “boys club” afternoons to flower arranging and arts and crafts.

Sharston House loves to be at the heart of the community and regularly welcomes visitors from school and church choirs to hairdressers, entertainers, a chiropodist and a keep fit lady.

A diagnosis of dementia brings with it a very difficult and confusing time for the individual and their loved ones, and it is only natural to feel anxious about moving somewhere new. At Sharston we ensure that the transition into our care is carefully assessed and managed in order to minimise upset to all concerned.

Residents who are experiencing memory loss benefit from our enlightened approach to dementia care, which stimulates, supports and comforts in a safe and homely environment. We are committed to providing the best possible outcomes for these residents, and we achieve this through our ‘Wings’ (Welcome, Individuality, Nurturing, Guidance, Sensitivity) philosophy of care. This award-winning approach is nationally recognized and our bespoke learning programme is designed to ensure that the person with a dementia is at the heart of everything we do. Whether it’s a friendly face, a warm smile or taking time to listen, making a positive difference to someone’s day is what makes our world go round.

As with all Kingsley homes, there are regular visits from hairdressers, chiropodists and holistic therapists. There is also an active entertainment programme for those who wish to participate, yoga sessions, music afternoons, craft, trips out and visiting professional entertainers. These activities are offered on a one to one or a group basis.

We place great importance on the lives our residents have led before coming to us. We spend time with them and family members to find out about their tastes, history, hobbies and interests. We see family and friends as our partners in caring for the individual and we welcome feedback and suggestions at all times. The information shared helps us to create individual care plans that are crucial in providing the best care and help us get to know the individual. Residents are helped to achieve their aims by taking part in meetings, surveys and one-to-ones.

The home is continually committed to specialist training, which enables staff to help individuals express their needs and maintain a high level of independence, self-worth and well-being.

We welcome and encourage our residents to make their rooms as homely and personalised as possible. By furnishing the room with their own belongings they create a space in which they can feel safe and happy. Paintings, a favourite ornament and plenty of family photographs can all be of comfort and will help if a resident feels unsettled.

We encourage all our residents to live as healthily as possible, to help them have long and pleasant lives. We encourage appropriate exercise, keeping minds active and eating nutritious food, and our healthy, balanced meals are made from scratch using only the best, locally sourced ingredients. We understand that people’s tastes and habits are different, and we ensure that the varied menu includes a selection of nutritious delights and individuals’ favourites.

Each Kingsley care home is unique but all have a set of highly respected and award-winning features embedded within the culture. Our daily emphasis is on the care that our residents need, whether that is physical, emotional or spiritual.

“Thank you for your kindness and loving care given to our mum. Life has been hard for her but during her stay with you, no longer is she lonely.” Kingsley resident’s relative.

Sharston House is situated in one of Knutsford’s most pleasant locations, less than half a mile from the pretty town centre conservation area and with good road and rail links. The 48-bedroom home is an interesting combination of an old Victorian building with many original architectural details coupled with additional more recent bedrooms.

The majority of rooms have ensuite facilities with many on the ground floor having patio door access to the garden. Residents are encouraged to personalise their rooms. There is a large dining room and many relaxed sitting areas with televisions. Our chef uses fresh, local produce to create tempting daily dishes; kitchen staff are pleased to accommodate individual tastes and any special dietary requirements.
