Facilities at The Thornlea

The bungalow home has one twin bedded room and 13 single rooms.

Social Rooms

There are two spacious lounges and two separate dining rooms, all centrally heated. Residents are encouraged to use these public rooms, however, residents who choose to stay in their own rooms may do so. Smoking, whilst generally discouraged within the Home, is allowed in the front lounge.


All rooms are comfortably furnished and have colour television and individual nurse call systems. Personal items are encouraged where space allows. We have 13 single rooms and one double room. We cater for respite, long-stay and short-stay alike and accept private funding or Social Services funding. Our accommodation charges are very competitive and are dependent upon a ‘pre-assessment’ of need to determine what level of personal care is required. Please refer to your individual “Contract of Residence” for more details or contact a member of the Management Team for further information.  


Highly trained and experienced staff will provide 24 hour care. On-going staff training is continuously maintained.


Our chef will ask each day what our residents would like to eat. A choice of menu and individual requirements will be discussed on admission and this will be on-going.


An in-house laundry service is provided for all residents.


Assistance and time needed for all personal needs and requirements will be met with the utmost discretion.

e.g. Doctors, dentists, chiropodists, hairdressers (of the residents' choice), etc. all visit the Home.  Also additional services will be provided at the residents' request such as homeopathy, as will visits from the local clergy.
