       Stanwell Rest Home consists of four large houses at the upper end of Shirley Avenue, numbers 70 to 76, remodelled to form a single self-contained unit.


In the main building, 70-76 Shirley Avenue, we can accommodate 30 residents in 24 single rooms and three double rooms, some with en-suite facilities.  All rooms have central heating and double glazing.


Residents may choose from four separate lounges, each with a dining area where meals are also served.  Each of the four houses has a stairlift.  We also have five bathrooms, four showers and two hydraulic bath hoists.  A full laundry service is provided at no extra charge.


Separate from the main building is a purpose built apartment block known as Stanwell Apartments.  The apartments have been built on land to the rear of the main building and they front onto Howards Grove which runs parallel to Shirley Avenue.  Stanwell Apartments consist of eight self-contained apartments with a communal lounge and other communal facilities.  There is a stairlift.  Residents of the apartments can enjoy, with the help of Stanwell's own staff, the highest levels of privacy and choice. 


The apartments are registered as part of the care home and therefore residents receive personal care and all meals from Stanwell staff whenever it may be needed 24 hours, seven days a week.


Outside, the large gardens are laid mainly to lawn surrounded by

mature trees and shrubs.  The patio areas are available for use in favourable weather. 

Telephone facilities are available to all, with some residents having their own personal telephone. 

Personal items of furniture and belongings are encouraged.
