Magnolia House is a luxurious residential home for the elderly, situated close to the centre of Cottingham, on the leafy outskirts between Hull and Beverley.
Our last CQC inspection was February 2016 and the home was given a GOOD rating.
Over the past few years it has been extended several times and offers the very best of facilities, making for what must be the finest home in the area. Catering for those seeking residential care, as well as a separate unit for those living with the effects of dementia, the home can accommodate a wide range of needs. For those with minor nursing requirements, a large team of district nurses visit the home daily to oversee those residents in their charge.
From the moment you step into the home’s beautiful reception, we think you’ll be impressed with the quality we offer. The home has 84 bedrooms across its four separate sections. Lavender Way is a small, fully functional 17 bed residential unit, with large rooms, spacious en suites and access to a small communal lounge for group activities or simply to read or watch television. Large enough to foster a community spirit but quiet enough for those who do not wish to be bothered if they do not wish to, Lavender can cater for everybody’s preferences.
Cedar Court is a larger unit across two floors which again caters for residential needs, with access to the central dining room and lounge, and again with large rooms and en suites. Cedar Court is ideal for those who like to be where the action is and to see staff, relatives and other visitors as they come and go.
Willow Court, formally a separate building consisting of a small number of large flats before being brought into the home’s footprint, is now a 14 bed, premium – standard set of rooms, with big bay windows, large living spaces and new en suite facilities, away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of daily home life.
Maple Court is the home’s 36 bed unit for those living with the effects of dementia and other related issues. Having recently been renovated to provide a good number of those rooms with en suites, and including replacing EVERY bedroom door with an individually chosen colour, real front door (complete with number and knocker!) to help residents recognise their own room, as well as accredited dementia-friendly signage throughout, Maple Court really does work for the residents who live there. Park Lane Healthcare Ltd’s owners have undertaken numerous dementia related courses, including a degree in Dementia Studies from the subject-leading Bradford University, and now the home manager and senior home management team have taken a Dementia Care Mapping course, in order for the home in future to tailor the care offered to our residents.
The home boasts magnificent, manicured gardens at the rear which can be seen by residents from their rooms, or from the main communal lounge and dining room. Residents often take themselves off to enjoy a walk on the paths provided, or to sit and enjoy the lake with the ducks that return each year. There is also a sensory garden for residents on Maple Court to enjoy – weather permitting!
Magnolia House offers a full and diverse range of activities, therapies and treatments for our residents, with a dedicated activities coordinator for whom nothing is too much trouble. Sarah does a fantastic job and in addition to her own activities, she regularly schedules outside entertainers, singers and trips out to the seaside, bowls clubs or theatres. We even have our own, dedicated hairdressers called Tiffany’s, situated in Lavender Way that is open three times a week for those residents who want to keep looking wonderful. We also have regular visits from a chiropodist and exercise specialists to keep our residents as fit and active as possible.
We operate an open door policy at Magnolia House, and so we would love to welcome you and show you round, so that you can see for yourself. Lindsay, the home manager, will be only too happy to speak with you and answer any questions you have. Why not call her on 01482 845038.
