Welcome to Bank Hall
Bank Hall is a single storey residential care home in Burnley catering for 33 people aged 65+. It is situated in its own beautiful landscaped grounds and is surrounded by woodland and wildlife.
The home is conveniently located on a bus route direct to the market town of Burnley and is also within easy walking distance to the nearby shops, train station and the picturesque Thompson Park with its beautiful Italian gardens and boating lake.
The home is wonderfully spacious yet retains a homely feel. Every bedroom is decorated and furnished to a high standard to create a cosy, homely environment. We encourage each person to decorate their room with their own photographs, books, and other keepsakes as we know adding these personal items plays a crucial part in making Coniston House feel completely like home.
We believe having things to look forward to and a sense of purpose is very important, so we help people get the most from each day in whatever way is most appropriate for them. With this in mind, we have a regular schedule of activities on offer at Bank Hall, designed to keep the people we support entertained and engaged.
Life at Bank Hall
At Bank Hall, we provide you with all the support you need to live a dignified and fulfilling life and to continue to participate in the activities you’ve always enjoyed. We do this by finding out what was, and is, important to you and designing a care and support plan specific to your individual needs, interests and preferences.
Our dedicated Activity Coordinator carries out both group and one-to-one activities that are designed for all interests, abilities and mobility styles. Activities include crafts, baking, gardening, massage and beauty treatments, gentle exercise classes, reading/sewing groups and trips into the local community. We also host themed events, movie nights and encourage residents to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries together.
We also respect the privacy of residents who enjoy their own company – our home can cater to your loved one’s habits and social needs and we know how important quiet time can be too. With this in mind, we never pressure anyone to get involved before they’re ready to and take the lead of your loved one at every stage.
We are very lucky at Bank Hall to welcome so many visitors and have an ‘open door’ policy so family and friends can pop by whenever they like.
Food and nutrition
We pride ourselves on providing fresh, seasonal, home-cooked food that is prepared daily in our kitchen. Our experienced chefs offer a balanced, varied, and interesting choice of meals with a focus on health and nutrition.
Our kitchen caters for all dietary and eating requirements, including vegetarian, gluten-free, and soft or blended meals. We also ensure a tasty alternative to the main menu is always available.
Although our bright, communal dining rooms are the most popular space for mealtimes, we encourage those in our care to eat wherever they feel most comfortable. That may be the dining room, their private room, or another area of the home.
Snacks and drinks are also available between meals, with nutritious, freshly made smoothies, soups, sandwiches, and homemade sweet treats all available.
We know that those living with dementia or age-related difficulties can experience eating difficulties, so our experts are on hand to prepare meals outside of our set mealtimes. A large-format menu can be provided upon request, and adapted cutlery and crockery is also available if needed.
My role at Bank Hall is to ensure the facilities are all clean, safe and well maintained so the people living at the care home are safe, comfortable and happy.
My role at Bank Hall is to ensure the building, facilities and gardens are all safe and well maintained so the people living at the care home are safe, comfortable and happy. I maintain building exteriors, office interiors, landscaping, and communal spaces. I’m always available to troubleshoot any issues and make small repairs as needed.
I started my 30 year career in care as a carer and progressed to a care home manager in 2011. I have completed NVQ 1,2,3,4,5 and PTTLS which allows me to teach staff. I have mainly worked with specialist Dementia homes and have the ethos of “coming into care isn’t the end but a chance to make more memories and a new chapter in a person’s life”. My goal is to make a difference and for those living in our home to live life and enjoy each day.
I started working for Rochcare 10 years ago as a housekeeper and have been able to work my way up over the years in various roles within the home. I have completed my NVQ Level 2 & 3 and am currently studying for my NVQ Level 5. I am now Deputy Manager of Bank Hall and enjoy my role and working for the company very much.
I have worked for Rochcare for 11 years, firstly in the daycare unit and now at the reception desk at Bank Hall. I love my role and being part of a great team of people all working together towards a common goal.
I started my career as a weekend cook in a care home and have worked my way up to being a full-time head chef now at Bank Hall. I have worked in numerous care homes and I love working alongside the elderly. I have done it for so many years now that I couldn’t imagine doing anything different. I love seeing the residents smile when they sit down in the dining room to a good, hearty meal and really like hearing their feedback.
Our specialist dementia care home in Burnley
Scarlett House is our beautiful, purpose built dementia care home in Burnley. It was designed with guidance from the Alzheimer’s Society to help maximise independence, confidence and safety while minimising the stress and challenges of living with dementia.
Our fabulous care home, which is just half a mile from Burnley town centre, has 20 beautifully furnished and decorated private ensuite bedrooms, all with underfloor heating and own TV. It is bright and airy, incorporating the use of colour, light and images to enable residents to understand their environment and orient themselves around the home.
The lounge and dining areas are modern and welcoming and the cheery conservatory leads onto a beautiful enclosed garden with patio and gazebo seating area for relaxing when the weather turns warm. The garden is very popular with everybody at Scarlett House, not least because of the amazing wildlife – birds, squirrels, foxes and deer all make a welcome appearance.
We know it’s not easy for family when a loved one develops dementia and moves into a care home for the first time. That’s why we operate a genuine open door policy for all family members. Please do pop by whenever you like. There’s a coffee with your name on it!
