Our approach to care focuses on maximising independence, building everyday living skills and empowering people to live as fulfilled lives as possible.

Speaking about the opening, Helen Lawson, Commissioning Home Director for Bennett Court, said: 

“I’m delighted to have opened Bennett Court – and to be providing 150 jobs for the local area. We are excited to build up the team working within the home and to be able to provide our residents with the very best care. 

"Our goal at Bennett Court is to help our residents with everyday living skills and empower them to live as fulfilled and independent lives as possible.”

A place to call home

Our home provides a welcoming environment where people can feel at home, continue to do the things that they enjoy, and remain closer to family, friends and loved ones.

Bennett Court has 30 large bedrooms across three units, each with an en-suite wet room. We’ve found that this small group living provides a homely and supportive environment, which is more responsive to people’s needs.

We encourage people to personalise their rooms so that it feels like home, whether that’s a full re-decoration or encouraging people to bring special items that are filled with fond memories.

The home also has communal dining and living space, as well as a sensory and therapy room which provides a dedicated space for rehabilitation.

Bennett Court is surrounded by a large landscaped garden, that’s been designed with accessibility in mind, and is ideal for parties, events and activities.
