Rugby - Dewar Close
Dewar Close provides long-term residential care and short term respite care for people living with dementia, as well as older people with long-term physical conditions.
Dewar Close has been designed as three separate households. The ground floor provides a home for 11 people with easy access, whilst the middle and top floors house 16 people each and can be accessed by a lift.
Each household has a living area with a lounge, dining area and kitchenette, where people can make their own snacks and drinks, and staff are always happy to help with the preparation of hot refreshments if requested.
The open living area is a central hub for each household where people can get together and socialise with other residents, family and friends. You'll often find regular activities happening in the living area or we might be outside in the garden. Our large, secure gardens have seating areas, planted spaces and raised beds where our residents and staff grow fruit and vegetables. We have our own fish, all of which are looked after and enjoyed by residents.
Dewar Close also has a beauty salon, offering unisex hairdressing and manicures, as well as our Buddies Bungalow which includes a bright café and plenty of space for activities such as table tennis.
The Memory Maker, our minibus, takes residents on local trips every month. Two wheelchairs can be accommodated on each trip and relatives can join in too.
Volunteers from The Gift of Years Rugby visit the home regularly to provide regular services of worship, befriending, singing groups and one-to-one activities.
Fees at Dewar Close range from £1047 to £1436 per week, depending on care needs and any additional supplements, if applicable. See the 'fees & important information' tab for details (prices valid from 1st April 2023 and are subject to review).
