About Friends of the Elderly Malvern
Category: Residential, nursing and dementia care
With a person-focused approach to care, Davenham, Bradbury Court and Perrins House are picturesque homes situated in beautiful grounds in Malvern. Specialising in care for people with dementia, as well as residential and nursing care, we have a dedicated, well-trained and compassionate team of staff on hand to ensure that Malvern feels like home.
Across the three homes at Friends of the Elderly Malvern, our rooms have en-suite facilities, and views overlooking the beautiful gardens and Malvern Hills. With bright and airy lounges, spacious dining rooms and a sun room, alongside an extensive library, sensory garden and an onsite galleried chapel, Malvern is designed to make you feel at home.
We create personalised care plans for each of our residents, meaning an individual 24-hour care package is tailored to specific needs.
Joined and sharing the same grounds and management team , Malvern homes are specialised to offer different types of care – residential care, nursing care and dementia care.
You may move between Davenham, Bradbury Court and Perrins House as your needs may change so that you can be in the home that keeps you as independent as possible while meeting your needs. This avoids the need for you to find a new home while also offering consistency and maintaining an already well established relationship.
We are very fortunate to have a strong activity team, led by a co-ordinator who supports activities across the three homes. For example we have a lovely tea room in Bradbury Court which is accessible every day but more formally opened and ran by volunteers weekly where residents from all the homes come to meet up and socialise.
We offer a varied programme of events at Malvern, including seated exercise classes, quizzes, visiting entertainment, trips out for a pub lunch or tea and cake – activities are tailored to each resident.
Choose from a wide range of nutritious, delicious meals, alongside a range of snacks and fruit available in between meal times.
As the former family home of the famous Dyson Perrins dynasty enjoy the beautiful buildings and stunning grounds– perfect for sitting outside and enjoying a good day’s weather, reading a book and meeting family.
Our rooms come fully furnished, however residents are encouraged bring their own personal furniture and belongings to make their room comfortable and homely.
I have worked in the Care Sector for over 36 years – 26 of those years have been with Friends of the Elderly at Davenham care home.
I grew up in a family-orientated household filled with laughter and love, which has been a strong influence on my career in care. We keep in regular contact with all the resident’s families, which helps us tailor our care for everyone’s needs and requirements. This extends throughout the entire team here, ensuring Davenham provides a safe and loving home for all.
At college, I was asked what my ambition was and I said, ‘I want to run a care home’. I feel very privileged to do what I do and honoured to work with my team to keep our residents happy and living full and meaningful lives.
Elaine Banks, Bradbury Court Care Home Manager
I first joined the care sector when I was 17 years old, joining Bradbury Court care home, which specialises in dementia care, six years ago.
At Bradbury Court, we are a family made up of our residents, their relatives and loved ones and the caring team who are devoted to making a positive impact to each of our residents’ lives with personalised care and activity plans.
Dementia care can have its challenges but is also incredibly rewarding. Our ‘Namaste’ programme, which uses sensory tools to create a calming atmosphere, has had a huge benefit for residents. It is wonderful to be leading a team that has such a focus on activities that engage residents living with dementia.
I feel proud to work with the team at Bradbury Court who are so dedicated to the health, safety and well-being of our residents through the care we provide.
Rachel Knighton, Perrins House Care Home Manager
My background is in nursing and I have been in the care sector for over 30 years, with roles at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham and a hospice in Solihull.
In 2015, I was delighted to become Care Home Manager at Perrins House, which specialises in nursing care in Malvern.
I love being a part of a caring team that devotes each day to keeping our residents motivated, engaged and safe. Their health and well-being are our main priority and Perrins House is their home. We are a family and all the team work to make each day a good day for each resident.
