Care Lifestyle

We’re often asked “what is it like to live in an old peoples home?”. We know that when one is advanced in years, it is time to take things easy and enjoy life in comfort and security. This is the time to live in warm and peaceful surroundings, to choose how to spend ones time and to leave the worries of everyday life to others.

Live a fulfilling life in a care home

This is the aim of AgeCare Care Homes, its management and staff and what makes our service truly special. Residents can maintain their privacy and independence yet enjoy the friendship and company of other residents and staff, as well as become involved to the extent they desire in the activities of the residential or nursing care home.

Our Principles of Care


First class accommodation, a friendly atmosphere, social interaction and daily activities all contribute to a fulfilling and relaxing lifestyle.


Our residents have a right to be left alone and undisturbed or free from conversation and public attention should they so wish.


Residents have a right to make their own choices wherever possible and can choose how they spend their time from day to day.

Encourage Independence

No two residents are the same, our individual approach to care and exemplary accommodation maximises independence in a safe and secure environment. We do things with our residents, not for them.

Maintain Dignity

AgeCare Care Homes recognises the intrinsic value of people and all deserve and receive complete and utter respect.

Outstanding care

Senior citizens and their families may rest assured that Scimitar has the experience and expertise to provide residential and nursing care for all its residents on a completely individual basis — from those just needing a helping hand to those requiring assistance with mobility and dressing, right through to seniors requiring a total 24-hour care plan regime. All residents, whatever their level of need, have an individual Care Plan which is monitored and updated daily. Our care really does make a difference to people’s lives.

Involving Family and Friends

Family and friends are welcomed and encouraged to come and go as they please. We do not believe in visiting hours — our doors are always open.

Delectable Cuisine

All meals are freshly prepared on the premises to a tantalising standard. A choice of meals throughout the day is available to all residents and of course special dietary requirements are fully catered for. Visitors are welcome to dine with residents, though some notice maybe required.

Engaging Activities

A comprehensive programme of entertainment, designed to stimulate but not intrude, is arranged on a regular basis by one of our resident activities co-ordinator. This includes fashion shows, music and movement, community singing, dancing, art, cards and other games, all of which are completely discretional. A non-denominational service of worship is held monthly. A library, including large print books and audio books, are available for all residents to enjoy. The choice of activity is limited only by imagination.

Compassionate Staffing

All AgeCare staff undergo rigorous checking for suitability and must be devoted to caring for senior citizens. AgeCare Care Homes has developed an extensive training and monitoring program that ensures residents receive exemplary levels of quality care. Staff are on hand 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
