We love seeing smiles and work hard to ensure that those we support continue to do the things that make them happy. It is paramount to us that residents feel that they’re at home at Upper Mead Care Home and fill their days with the things that make them smile. Whilst our team is available 24/7 for any support or companionship that residents need, we still give them the opportunity to be as independent as possible.

Communal Lounges

Recognising the significance of both an active lifestyle and moments of relaxation, we’ve built an inviting communal lounge at our care home in Henfield. These spaces offer residents a comfortable environment to socialise with friends and loved ones or connect with family members for a virtual catch-up. Our lounges are well-stocked with a variety of books and magazines, and residents are encouraged to bring their reading materials to make the space even more personal. Keeping comfort as a top priority, we’ve furnished the lounges with an array of cushions and cosy chairs, ensuring residents have ample choices for a relaxing and enjoyable experience.

Hair Salon

At Upper Mead Care Home, we understand how important it can be to continue to be pampered throughout every aspect of our lives. We have an in-house hairdresser who visits our care home in Henfield regularly and has formed brilliant relationships with our residents. Even spending an hour in the hair salon can help people leave with a newfound sense of confidence and happiness. The physical and mental well-being of our residents is so important to us which is why it makes us so happy to see their smiles once they have finished having a pamper in the hair salon.

Private Courtyard

Our private courtyard is a section of our care home that we are most proud of. It spans the length of the home and is a beautiful space for residents, loved ones and members of the local community to enjoy. There are ample areas to sit, which is perfect for al fresco in the summer months. The courtyard is designed with easily accessible pathways for leisurely walks and benches strategically placed for those who prefer to read a book in the open air. To add a personal touch to the garden, residents can utilise our variety of pots and raised planters, allowing them to customise the space with their favourite plants or flowers. The garden is enhanced with a built-in fountain, designed to simplify maintenance and add a touch of serenity. We organise regular events during the summer and invite members of the local community to celebrate with us at our care home in Henfield.
