This room is the main dining area, perfectly positioned close to the kitchen. All meals are taken here unless a resident requests to have their meals taken elsewhere.

We have an outside hairdresser who comes in twice a week. Recently refurbished, its modern design and equipment means that the whole experience for residents is more relaxed and enjoyable.
This is a dedicated room for the activities staff to do arts and crafts with the resident.
Meadowfields employs two full time activity coordinators, one for Oak and the other for Cedar/Beech. We rotate the staff so that they get to know all the residents and their requirements. All residents have different capabilities and needs and we never undervalue what residents can do or achieve, but as with all of us, we must be able to make our own decision’s if we are able to. This must never be taken away from the residents; choice, respect and dignity, this is what the home tries to achieve.
