Our fabulous residential care home in Burnley
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. There are 3 lounges (one with a piano and organ) and 2 conservatories, so you can choose your favourite place to relax or to catch up with your Bank Hall friends for a chat. There is also a large kitchen where our professional chefs create your delicious meals, and a small kitchen area where you or your relatives can make your own drinks and snacks at any time of the day. And the garden is beautiful! When people move into Bank Hall their favourite pastime soon becomes watching the birds and squirrels come and go. We’re even lucky enough to be visited by deer and foxes from time to time.
Every bedroom is decorated and furnished to a high standard to create a cosy, homely environment. You’re also very welcome to decorate the room with your own photographs, pictures and other possessions. In fact, we actively encourage it! We all feel much more at home when we’re surrounded by our own, familiar things and at Bank Hall we want you to feel completely at home.
Enjoying life at Bank Hall
We know that some people love to socialise, some prefer to do things alone and others like to do a bit of both. So at Bank Hall residential care home you can choose whatever option suits you best on any given day.
We offer a flexible leisure programme which includes visits to the theatre or cinema, pub lunches, day trips to the seaside, coffee mornings, Home Safari (think goats, chicks, frogs, reptiles and rabbits!), garden parties, manicures and foot massages and gardening (we have a fully accessible poly tunnel where we grow our own flowers and vegetables). We are even presently developing a pop-up pub for one of our lounges – as you can probably imagine, there is a lot of interest in this!
We also have an inspirational and well-liked discussion group where we talk about subjects from favourite school teachers, famous painters and national events, to more conceptual ideas such as gratefulness and happiness. Many of those involved in the discussion groups like to build on the discussion through creative activities such as painting, drawing or designing collage displays which reflect their ideas.
Of course, while we are very proud of our fabulous range of activities, we recognise that they may not be for everyone so it’s entirely up to you how much or how little you participate in. If you just want to relax with a newspaper or book in one of our comfy lounges, that’s fine too.
At Bank House, quality of life is paramount. As well as providing excellent standards of care and support, and lots of opportunities to have fun, we also believe that quality of life is about being listened to. We listen when you tell us what you want or what you don’t want, we listen to your suggestions and we listen when you just want a chat. So when you move to Bank Hall you know you have a voice and a choice. It’s your home after all.
