Where are we?

Located on the edge of Swindon, Fitzwarren House backs on to Stanton Park and its' plethora of wild birds and animals.

Activities, trips and events

We have our own hair and nail salon for a spot of pampering and our coffee lounge is the perfect place to meet with friends.

Our beautifully landscaped gardens, patios and summer house are lovely areas to relax. There’s the added bonus of an abundance of wild birds and animals to watch, from the neighbouring Stanton Park.

We’ve an optional schedule of events and activities, helping residents to explore their interests and discover new ones. There’s baking, arts and crafts, bingo, quizzes, animal visits and church services and residents love our themed lunches.

We also have a dedicated chaplain and offer music therapy to all our residents. We like to take regular trips to the garden centre, steam museum, art centre, ice rink, the theatre and cinema, or for a drink at the local pub.

Award winning music therapy

We are committed to providing alternative therapies such as music therapy to help alleviate isolation and the symptoms for those living with dementia. Our therapist is funded by charitable donations. She interacts directly with residents through live music therapy sessions. This includes singing, playing simple percussion instruments or responding to musical cues in a one-to-one or group setting. Take a look at our video to find out more about this life changing therapy.

Chaplaincy and pastoral support

We are proud to be supported by a dedicated Chaplain, who offers pastoral support to all, whatever their beliefs. Our chaplain provides a listening presence, companionship and one-to-one pastoral support for all residents, their friends and relatives, and staff members - irrespective of their beliefs - and organise worship for those who wish to participate. Where appropriate, residents are encouraged to maintain links with local faith communities.

We have the latest safety and security design features so you can live life to the full with peace of mind.

Your room

We encourage our residents to furnish their own rooms as they wish. This could be as simple as hanging a couple of their favourite pictures on the wall, but they’re also welcome to bring their own comfy chair, or anything that makes them feel at home.

The most important thing is for everyone to feel comfortable, happy and settled. All our bedrooms have an en suite wet room with toilet and sink, and some rooms enjoy lovely garden views.

Our dementia facilities here are second to none, and specially designed to provide a reassuringly familiar, engaging and warm environment for those living with us. We have dementia friendly decor – bedroom doors have memory boxes and are painted in different bright colours to assist your loved one to find their room. And our dementia areas open into a secure and peaceful garden.

Residents enjoy music therapy and reminiscence activities, including doll therapy, designed to stimulate social interaction and alleviate the feeling of isolation associated with dementia.

Medical and other forms of specialist support are delivered with friendly expertise by our highly skilled team of nursing professionals.

As you’d expect from our wonderfully compassionate team, nursing care is wholly person-centred to meet the requirements of each individual with respect and dignity at all times.

Mealtimes are an important part of the day here, giving our residents the opportunity to get together and enjoy freshly prepared food in a relaxed restaurant-style environment. We always offer two meal options and our chefs will happily prepare something special if nothing on the menu appeals.

  • All dietary and religious needs catered for
  • Locally sourced meats, fruit and vegetables where possible
