Your next chapter awaits...

We are delighted to welcome you to Fernhill House in Worcester.

Fernhill House is a new, state-of-the-art community for people over 65 years of age. Our ambition is to provide a vibrant, stimulating place to spend your autumn years. We also aim to do things a little differently to other homes in the area.

We have two communities in which to make your home. The ground floor provides a stunning place in which to live. From the moment you arrive in our chauffeur-driven car, you will be warmly welcomed into our thriving café area which is the hub of our home. Here, you and your family can indulge in freshly baked goods, great coffee or something a little stronger if it takes your fancy, we think that a glass of wine, a sherry or a gin and tonic when you’re with family and friends (old and new) makes conversation flow that little bit more!

We have spacious areas to sit and chat or to find a cosy nook to read your favourite book or morning paper. Our community rooms also include a library, a friendship room where you can entertain in private if you would like. There is no charge for this, you just need to book it – speaking of charges – we only have one charge – an all-inclusive price that will include meals and drinks for you and your family, trips out, our chauffeur-driven vehicle, salon treatments and any hobbies that you wish to maintain – or maybe try out for the first time! We think this gives you peace of mind. We will introduce you to our hand-picked team of dedicated staff and help you to settle in to one of our spacious and beautiful suites. We have built our home in a Georgian style with fabulous sash windows that really let in the light and most look out on to our leafy grounds with dedicated garden spaces.

On our first floor, we have a specialist community for those living with a dementia. Here, maintaining an active life, full of purpose is at the heart of what we do. We have designed hobby rooms, a tea shop and pub to socialise in, lift access to a secure, sensory garden and a stimulating beautiful environment. Our team are dedicated to ensuring you have companionship and a bit of fun. Every day will be different but we will also help with making spaces and routines feel familiar and comforting.

Companionship and real family values are at the heart of what we do. It really is our intention to provide a home away from home with all the standards of daily living you will be used to. Our team are trained and dedicated to ensuring all our residents with a wide range of needs have a gracious and fulfilled quality of life.

We are rightly proud of what we have achieved for our residents and we invite everyone who is interested in the home to visit us in person. Please contact me to arrange a convenient time – I very much look forward to meeting you soon.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff at Fernhill House for the dedication and exceptional level of care given to my father. We are delighted that he is safe, happy and are also greatly impressed by the attention to detail and the facilities provided.”

A different approach

We believe that all of our staff are not only a talented bunch of people, but that they all have hobbies, skills, talents and interests that can be shared with the people who live at Fernhill House. So we have moved away from having dedicated activities staff to involve our entire team in ensuring there is plenty of stimulating activity and leisure pursuits going on every day. As well as scheduled events, we will have lots of ad hoc moments as well. To see what is going on at any time see the activity links below.

Fernhill House residents are looking forward to getting out and about in an unusual way - on a bicycle rickshaw!   

The home is running a series of fun fundraising activities to buy the £6,500 vehicle – also known as a trishaw – starting with a sweepstake to predict the winner of this season’s Strictly Come Dancing competition.   

Home manager Peta Mandleberg, whose colleagues came up with the idea, explained: “We’re all about having fun here and living our lives to the full. We often run days out – to the beach, the races, to stately homes – and have drinks, barbecues and musical events.   

“We’ve recently acquired an old fashioned ice cream bicycle and that gave us the idea that it would be fun for the residents to sit in the side car and be cycled around the grounds and the village – rather like Wallace and Gromit but with slightly less Wensleydale.”   

The idea of enabling residents to take to the nearby highways and byways under pedal power was mooted after staff read about a similar scheme launched in progressive Denmark – whose fun and independent approach to retirement living has been a model for Fernhill House.   

That project, Cycling without Age, has now spread to more than 30 other countries where some 1,500 trishaws are in use, some of which have elderly friendly features such as lifts, safety belts and specially designed blankets.  

All money raised will be matched by the home’s owners Majesticare.
