Deer Park Care Home is located in the historic market town of Ledbury, on the borders of Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and Worcestershire, famous for its beginnings as a bishop’s manor and as the birthplace of Poet Laureate, John Masefield. The home is within easy driving reach of attractions such as the Malvern Hills and The Wye Valley, both Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

Deer Park Care Home offers 24 hour residential, nursing, dementia and respite care within elegant and spacious surroundings. The home is purpose-built, incorporating many thoughtful and practical features that ensure the comfort and safety of our residents at all times, supporting, not only their differing care requirements, but their social, emotional and physical wellbeing too.

Professional and empathetic care is what Porthaven does best and our team of hand-selected staff are dedicated to the care, comfort and dignity of every single individual. We place a particular emphasis on promoting independence, privacy, respect and wellbeing for all residents.

Every resident at Deer Park Care Home benefits from a spacious bedroom with en suite wetroom and there are a variety of communal living areas for socialising, hobbies and dining. These include sitting rooms, a number of different-sized restaurants, a gym, cinema, café, bespoke hairdressing salon, activities and wellbeing room and a private dining room for special family celebrations.

Porthaven greatly values enrichment and fun, where boredom is never an option. There is a well-developed and award-winning philosophy of activities and wellbeing, with a team of co-ordinators planning a diverse and inclusive programme of activities for the residents, ensuring to appeal to every interest, capability and need. This may include outings, visiting speakers, musical events and exercise sessions for various abilities.

There are two acres of secure and beautiful gardens at Deer Park Care Home for relaxation, exercise, afternoon tea in good weather and even gardening. Porthaven hold a friendly annual challenge between all the homes where residents are involved in the planning and planting of vegetables and flowers.

Deer Park Care Home is a place to live well in our care, in style. We would be delighted to chat to you and show you around our home, to see what we could offer you or your loved one, so you can see for yourself what makes a Porthaven home so special.

Get Out Together with Ledbury Primary School

In July our residents enjoyed weekly visits from a number of Ledbury Primary School pupils, an initiative organised by Rachel Freeman from Everybody Dance Company and facilitated by the Community Action Ledbury minibus. Every Monday the children joined our residents for a catch up and walk around our gardens. It has been fantastic watching our residents and the pupils bond as they share their life stories, hobbies and interests, and we hope to welcome them back soon!

Superb sunflowers!

Back in April our Deer Park residents got together to plant sunflower seeds in preparation for the annual Porthaven Garden Challenge sunflower competition, and after some time in our greenhouse and plenty of warm weather it was time to plant them in the garden! So in June ten of our residents picked out the best spots for their sunflowers and worked alongside the wonderful Beth from John Masefield Sixth Form to delicately transport them into the soil. Our resident Pam, whose flower is currently measuring in at just under 5ft, is hoping her sunflower will have what it takes to tower above the rest and win us the competition!

Forget Me Not Friday Club

At last month’s Forget Me Not Friday Club, which is our monthly dementia café, we were joined by Charlotte and Tash from Dementia Matters Herefordshire as we marked Dementia Action Week. During the event, Charlotte and Tash explained how Dementia Matters supports individuals living with dementia in remaining a part of the Ledbury community through a range of services. This includes the use of their outreach van, buddying scheme and provision of one-to-one support. Attendees also spent time learning more about the meaning behind Dementia Action Week and how important it is to ‘act on dementia’ by seeking assistance from a medical professional if you suspect you or somebody close to you may be experiencing symptoms of dementia. Thank you for joining us Charlotte and Tash!
