Welcome to Havenmere
At Havenmere, we build our care and activity plans around individuals, supporting, nurturing and encouraging them to live happy, fulfilled lives.
Havenmere provides a three stage care pathway, from the wraparound care of the main home to The Bridgeway OneCare service. This extended care pathway accommodates those returning to life in the community, or is a way into care for people with a progressive condition who may not yet require complex nursing care.
Havenmere is arranged over three ten-bed units; Mayflower, Clyfton and Pilgrim. Each unit has a choice of lounges, a dining room and kitchen.
At Havenmere, we understand the importance of good, nutritious food. Our varied restaurant style dining menu is developed with service users to ensure we cater for personal tastes and dietary preferences including religious and condition-specific requirements.
Well-maintained accessible gardens include decking areas for sitting and relaxing, space for parties and areas for gardening.

|Service user engagement||Goals & outcomes|
Havenmere’s OneCare service, The Bridgeway, is an extended pathway of care which accommodates individuals returning to life in the community, or alternatively provides a way into care for people with a progressive condition, such as Huntingdon’s disease.
Encouraging service users to develop or maintain their independence and life skills, the service includes a six-bed apartment and two one-bedroom apartments, on a separate fourth unit, purpose built for the OneCare service.
The six-bed apartment has shared kitchen and living areas, allowing service users to interact and support one another, whilst still receiving support from the main home. The two one-bedroomed apartments are self-contained, which allow for more independent living. This sole-occupancy environment is personalised to suit the unique needs of individual service users.
Supported by specialist nurse aided care and life-skills teams, service users at The Bridgeway benefit from the therapy and care available within Havenmere, as required. The Bridgeway provides a transitional care pathway for individuals with mental health needs and acquired brain injuries.
During the early 90’s, Tim suffered with anxiety and depression, leading to extreme agitation and trauma. After being admitted to a private mental health unit, he spent eight months in rehabilitation. Over the next 13 years, Tim lived in a number of community and acute mental health services, and was detained under the Mental Health Act.
By May 2015, Tim had found support at Havenmere, where he could finally receive the person-centred care he had been missing. Supported by the mental health and general nursing team, Tim settled in, began counselling and over time met his personal, rehabilitation goals.
As he progressed further and developed more skills of everyday living, Tim moved into The Bridgeway. Today, Tim cooks and cleans for himself, enjoys weekends away with his family and, lives with more independence.
"The Bridgeway provides Tim with the ideal environment for his rehabilitation and recovery. From initially requiring 1:1 support, to now living independently in The Bridgeway, we have been able to meet Tim’s needs as he progresses towards his personal goals.” Home manager, Diane Howden
