Yarnton Residential and Nursing Home


Overlooking fields and woodland, Sanctuary Care’s Yarnton Residential and Nursing Home is a beautiful care home with stunning gardens, spacious ensuite bedrooms and lots of wonderful spaces to enjoy.

But it’s the team, who provide residential, dementia, nursing, palliative and respite care, that make it feel like home. Respite care breaks can be booked in advance, which gives carers looking after loved ones at home the chance to take a well-deserved break, with the peace of mind of knowing their loved one is in safe hands.

The staff are devoted to enriching the lives of their residents, spending time getting to know their life histories and what they love to do, so they can make Yarnton their home.

A thriving home full of activity

The residents enjoy so many fantastic activities, from baking and listening to live music, to animal visits and pampering sessions. There is also a hairdressing salon for regular appointments with the home’s mobile hairdresser.

The gardens are a beautiful space to relax with loved ones, who are welcome to visit at any time. This summer residents have loved taking part in the home’s ‘Grow Your Own Way’ project, where the residents choose what to plant, nurturing their own produce, which is then used by the chef in the kitchen. They have grown everything from carrots and spring onions, to lettuce and parsley, giving them such a sense of achievement.

There are also raised beds and wheelchair friendly pathways, so residents in wheelchairs can enjoy gardening too.

The community are embraced into life in the home, with regular entertainers, children from the local schools and community volunteers popping in to spend time with the residents, which they love.

Residents leading the way

The team champion the residents to have a very active role to play in how the home is run, with resident ambassadors who provide feedback on everything from activities to the menu, as well as running residents’ meetings. This helps them to use those life-long skills, giving them a sense of purpose and belonging.

The home-cooked food is delicious, from roast dinners with all the trimmings, to fish and chip Friday and home-baking with afternoon tea.

The home has a private Facebook page, so families and friends can see what the residents are enjoying doing, even if they can’t be there in person.

Hear from the people who matter most

"The care home is immaculately clean; the care staff are hugely attentive and so lovely; the management staff are very much involved with the residents, visible, transparent and go the extra mile. The chef meets the residents to ensure they like the food he is cooking for them, including fresh cakes each afternoon. The grounds are beautifully maintained and my mother settled in very quickly, despite not wanting initially to leave her home. There is a varied entertainment programme and she loves the hairdresser on site. I can only praise Yarnton most highly across the board. review – daughter of resident

And don’t forget – you can pre-book respite care breaks too

Very thankful to all staff at Yarnton Residential and Nursing Home, who cared for my husband for a week's respite to give me a much-needed break. When we went to view the home, we were met with smiles and had all our questions answered patiently. The food was good, the staff were caring.” review – wife of respite resident

New build houses
Thu 18 Jul 2024

Congratulations! Buying a new home is such an exciting moment. Whether it is your very first home or you are upgrading your current property for something a bit nicer, there is no feeling like it. New build homes are such a great investment. Not only are they brand new for your family but you can feel confident that they have been designed with the future in mind. Many properties come with eco-friendly features which are great for safeguarding your family. Financing a new home can be a bit of a minefield. Let’s take a look at how you could buy your new home as well as some things to look out for along the way. Mortgage Mortgages are the most common financing option when buying a home. Buyers of new builds can benefit from mortgages designed for the intricacies of the new build process. Lenders may be a lot more critical when looking at your application as there is less security for them with a new build. As construction timelines can be subject to delays and issues, be sure to keep in touch with your lender and see if you can extend your mortgage in principal agreement. You may be able to get some help with buying a new build home. If you are a first-time buyer, look into whether you are eligible for a discount under the First Homes Scheme. Incentives from builders It is in the best interest of building developers to sell their new homes, so some may offer you incentives. You may be offered cash towards your deposit which will be transferred to your solicitor on completion. If you do take advantage of this, remember to inform your mortgage lender. For people who have already purchased a home, developers may be able to help you sell your old house. A developer-assisted sale is one where they will aid you with independent valuations, appropriate deals or the actual sale. This is often free, and they may pay for your estate agency fees. Hidden costs Buying a house can come with hidden costs such as stamp duty and moving costs. Delays in the construction of your new build can often be costly too. When thinking about your moving budget, it is wise to incorporate a buffer zone for additional expenses. Advice The home-buying process is not a straightforward one, so seeking help from professionals is prudent. A lot of the process includes legal intricacies which will be beyond your capabilities. Mortgage brokers, for example, will be invaluable when it comes to getting you a mortgage in principle that works for your situation. Not only will you be able to get the best deal and save money, but a broker will save you so much time. Instructing a firm of solicitors will also be worth the expense. They can do land searches, deed transfers and keep everything above board for you going forward.
