Rugby - Drovers House
Drovers House opened in 2013 and provides a home to 75 older people, some of whom are living with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia.
There are six households of between 10 and 13 people at Drovers House. Each household has its own communal open-plan lounge, dining area and kitchen. Everyone has their own ensuite room, with a personalised front door, and windows overlooking the surrounding neighbourhood, so people can watch the world going by outside, feeling involved in daily community life. For couples, a double apartment can be created with a bedroom and private lounge, or adjacent bedrooms are available.
Whilst there's always lots happening in each household, including our regular exercise classes and activities, Drovers House also has a cafe where residents can meet family and friends for a drink and some cake, a shop where they can stock up on supplies for their household's kitchen, a hair salon and spa bath. Residents can also use the therapy table tennis table in the downstairs lounge which has sides to keep the ball in play for longer.
Outside is a large garden with a specially designed cycle path for our side-by-side bike for two, a tool shed, raised beds and varied planting which residents look after.
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 services of worship, befriending, singing groups and one-to-one activities.
Fees at Drovers House range from £1309 to £1435 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).
