Areley House is equipped with every comfort residents could wish for. The original building dates back to the 1600s. It has beautifully preserved features.
Our premier rooms benefit from the very best that the original architecture has to offer – high ceilings, sash windows and ornate coving. Rooms in the modern coach house are bright and extremely spacious.
All of our rooms have en suite shower facilities, thermostatic radiators, TV points and a 24-hour nurse call system. We encourage residents to bring their own pieces of furniture and belongings to personalise their room to their own taste.
We are very lucky to have such a wonderful setting for the home. We have two lounges for residents to relax in – one with a TV and one without. The Oval Lounge is a particular favourite with panoramic views of the beautiful gardens. We have outdoor seating for the summer, lots of beautiful trees and a wildlife area.
There are two sunrooms to relax in as well. One affords a view out towards the front of the house so residents can watch people coming and going.
Our dedicated activities organiser ensures there’s always something fun to do – everything from poetry reading, puzzles and gardening (weather permitting) to group activities such as bingo, exercise classes and choral singing.
We make an effort to support hobbies that our residents enjoy and want to share with others. We also encourage sons, daughters and grandchildren to participate in the activities and put forward suggestions of their own.
We are very fortunate to be able to welcome entertainers along to the home from time to time. We’ve been visited by belly dancers, singers, and even a group of musicians from the Birmingham Philharmonic orchestra! A hairdresser visits on weekly basis.
Out and About
Areley House is a short walk from the historic Georgian canal town of Stourport-on-Severn which has many attractions and activities on the river, meadow and basins. Residents who wish are assisted to church on Sundays.
Regular day trips are organised to nearby attractions such as Areley Arboretum and the West Midland Safari Park.
Every meal is an occasion at Areley House. They are an important part of our day, both for enjoying delicious food and for a chance to catch up on the gossip and events at the home.
We have a large dining room which overlooks the gardens. In good weather residents, can enjoy their meal outdoors.
Our head chef prepares a wide range of balanced, nutritious dishes, using only fresh local produce where possible. Every effort is made to cater for all individual tastes and preferences. Particular favourites are the fish on Friday and the roast on Sunday which the residents can enjoy with a glass of wine. Residents can even join in with some cooking and baking should they wish.
We serve tea or coffee throughout the day, and drinks in the evening. Fresh fruits and treats are placed around the home for residents to help themselves.
