Hartford Care opened in June 2016 and is a state-of-the-art 60-bed care home that offers residential and dementia care including respite care and day care services to the elderly people of Portsmouth and surrounding areas.
The facilities at Hartford Court are truly exceptional. The reception area incorporates a comfortable seating area, a resident’s shop and a hairdressing and nail salon. The rest of the home boasts a library, a choice of formal and informal dining rooms, a number of lifestyle kitchens and of course plenty of restful communal lounges including The Colonial Lounge, The Captain’s Quarters and the Parlour.
The quality of build, design and finish are second to none. A great deal of care and attention to detail has been lavished on the interiors at Hartford Court and the result is delightful, where the traditionally English décor is set off to perfection by nautical touches, inspired by the proud Naval History of the city of Portsmouth.
The 60 individually designed en-suite bedrooms are comfortable and spacious and the building has been designed to make the most of the garden views with many of the bedrooms and lounges having private patio areas with personal access into the garden. The first floor also enjoys a comfortable terrace from which the residents can enjoy continuous access to the fresh air for relaxation.
At Hartford Court, there is a real emphasis on activities with a really interesting and varied daily programme of things to do. Regularly through the year, the home organises themed events to which friends and family are invited: murder-mystery dinners, music events, parties and birthday celebrations are just a few examples. Some residents may wish to continue their hobbies – others may wish to try new ones. There is plenty of choice and dedicated staff to help.
After a lifetime of independence, people are often reluctant to relinquish life skills. Those who enjoy cooking are welcome to use our lifestyle kitchens and carers are always be on hand to offer assistance if needed. Some residents enjoy preparing their own breakfast, supper or snacks – or even baking cakes and this is also catered for. Of course, home-cooked meals and drinks are provided and meal times are flexible with food and drink available 24 hours a day.
Being outdoors can be very therapeutic and the landscaping at Hartford Court offers green space and sun terraces for those who want to ‘take in the air.’ The gardens are large South Facing, all fully accessible with wide winding pathways with plenty of chairs available if residents need to take a rest whilst enjoying a daily walk in the sunshine.
We would love to welcome you to enjoy Day care as a flexible option and you can choose to visit us for one day, a week or several days and the timings can be tailored to suit your individual needs. Our care homes are very social and friendly, plus you can join us for lunch and participate in our varied activities and experiences such as: arts & crafts, exercise classes, musical activities, cooking, days out, gardening and visits from animals.
Hartford Court is a family home created with three underlying values at its core. These are care, comfort and companionship.
