Excellent facilities and furnishings

Having once been a private residence, Woodstock is now an established care home providing a welcoming and homely environment for those living with dementia or requiring residential care.

With 45 bedrooms, 6 lounges, dining room and beautiful gardens we provide a truly home-from-home feel for those in our care. Spanning two floors with lift access, all our rooms are decorated to hotel standard and many include en-suite facilities. We have also recently renovated the décor in our lodge rooms, dining area and corridors. Our Home is staffed 24 hours a day and all rooms are equipped with a call system for added reassurance.

Décor and furniture are carefully chosen to meet individual tastes and residents are actively encouraged to bring their own furnishings or make suggestions to create their own unique space. Our Housekeeping Team and Maintenance Person attentively look after the Home and grounds and are very much involved in our residents’ day-to-day lives. Our Head Housekeeper also has an exceptional flare for interior design.

Forming friendships


When welcoming residents and their relatives to Woodstock we understand the importance of establishing friendships and forming relationships, not only with our care staff but also other residents. Our communal lounges, private seating areas, conservatory and garden are perfect for creating a social and vibrant environment and provide the perfect space for daily activities.

Recreation and leisure

No two days are the same at Woodstock. Our Recreation and Well-Being Team create a wonderfully varied programme of entertainment and activities tailored to the interests of each and every person. Whether this is arts and crafts, singing along with our live entertainers, gardening and cooking, or just spending one-on-one time solving a crossword or enjoying a hand massage.

Our staff and residents look forward to making the most of seasonal events such as Easter, Christmas, Halloween and Valentine’s Day, with decorations a must. Our support and fundraising for charities such as Macmillan and Alzheimer’s Society often involves fun competitions and special events, and generates friendly competition between other Nellsar Homes!

Getting out-and-about and continuing to enjoy day trips is something we always look forward to. Our minibus (with wheelchair access) is always on hand to visit the coast, coffee shops, garden centres, shows or local attractions such as Leeds Castle. Fresh air is very much a ‘tonic’ to boost appetite, encourage better sleep and create new memories.

As well as getting out in the community, we also invite the community to us. It’s wonderful when a local group of nursery children visit us at Woodstock. The interaction between our residents and the children is fascinating to see, with all ages demonstrating a natural instinct to nurture, be inquisitive and have fun!

We are also introducing a bespoke service called ‘Interactive Me’ which is an online memory toolbox packed full of photos, music and videos all about your loved one. It creates an amazing talking point, sparks conversation and allows Carers to really get to know our residents so much better.

Nutrition and dining


Food is something we put a lot of thought and energy into at Woodstock. Not only by creating a unique dining experience for everyone, but in the choice and variety of meals we offer. Fresh ingredients, seasonal recipes, dietary requirements and personal preferences are paramount when creating our menus. We also source local produce including a fantastic butcher with the best Aberdeen Angus this side of Scotland!

The Nellsar Group is also unique in having its very own Nutritional Therapist, Leni, who works alongside our chefs to create the best holistic and nutritional healthcare for our residents.

We always encourage friends and family to join us for mealtimes and in addition to our large dining room, we have outdoor seating areas and a barbecue for the warmer months. Our garden summer house and converted caravan/ice cream parlour are real talking points and definitely worth a visit. Also, keep an eye out for our new reception café planned for later this year.

Personal care and well-being

Every aspect of personal care and wellbeing is on offer to our residents. We arrange visits from external professionals such as chiropodists, district nurses, speech therapists and Visioncall; eye care specialists using dementia friendly communication techniques. We also have our very own hair salon and trained manicurist on site.

We understand the emotional challenges that moving to a care home has on both the individual and their families. With this in mind, we ensure that special occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries are celebrated (usually with cake or special treats) and our Resident of the Day initiative emphasises the person centred care we provide. For those with loved ones living further afield, Skype chats can help maintain family connections and involvement.

A message from the Manager

Hello, my name is Nicola Masters and I’m the Manager of Woodstock Residential Care Home. I have worked as a Registered Manager for almost 30 years and first came to work for Nellsar in 2011. I am very proud of the facilities that we are able to provide, and the excellent care provided by my dedicated Deputy Manager and highly trained staff teams. Having previously Managed St Winifreds Care Home in Deal, and now as Woodstock’s Manager, my team and I are continually raising the levels of the services we provide.

First and foremost is the well-being of the residents whom we care for. The way we do this is to ensure their quality of life is the best it can possibly be. The care that we provide is of the highest standard and we always strive to keep the Home as family orientated as possible, while ensuring relatives and visitors can visit the Home at any time, seven days a week. I also actively encourage our residents’ friends, families and visitors to seek me out with any concerns that they may have.
