Cherry Trees Resource Centre in Bestwood Park, provides residential care for elderly, frail people and specialises in care for people with Dementia.
Located on Chippenham Road in Bestwood Park, the purpose-built centre is designed to support elderly and frail people and to cater for those living with dementia.
The Centre is located close to local amenities such as shops and local parks and has excellent transport links to the city centre. Residents are supported by staff to access the local amenities to encourage independence.
A list of our services:

We work with a range of health professionals to offer the best care for our residents. We maintain close contacts with the Dementia Care Team, Outreach Team and Falls Prevention Team as well as Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, GPs and a range of other health professionals.
Residents are assigned a key worker during their stay, they will work closely with them to carry out an assessment of their needs. Our aim is to support our residents to work towards their goals and to help them maintain their independence.
We provide person centred support tailored to meet each resident's individual needs. Having this at the heart of our centre enables us to provide a diverse range of activities that cater to our residents varying and ever changing needs.
The team are committed to finding new and exciting ways to enable residents to lead full and active lives whilst supporting them to retain their independence.
We also offer a support group for families and carers and we work closely with outside agencies such as the Alzheimer's Society.
Our friendly home offers all residents their own private single room with en suite facilities for comfort and convenience. We want to make our residents stay as comfortable as possible so home comforts including furniture can be brought in.
We also have a Grow and Eat Project which uses the on site allotment and provides fresh produce to use in meals and snacks throughout the day. The menu is informed by residents who are given the opportunity to have their own input into what food is provided. We also have a laundrette service.
The fully accessible building allows for many quiet and personal areas as well as offering a chance to participate in more social activities in the games area.
Outside there is a delightful sensory garden tailor-made to suit the needs of people with Dementia. The gardens are planted with lavender and honeysuckles. The centre benefits from beautiful landscape gardens with a patio area and greenhouses.
Family and friends are welcome at any time during the day and we can arrange private spaces for residents and their family. There is also a relaxing cafe area, staffed entirely by volunteers from the local area.
We provide a timetable of activities which is informed by our residents in monthly meetings. This can include table top activities such as crafts and games, themed events, tea dances, bingo, fetes, cinema nights, music movements, quizzes and visits from local community groups.
We also provide visits to local amenities and trips out to the cinema, theatre and sporting events. A modern hairdressing salon is available on site and the hairdresser comes in twice a week. Also at the centre is a relaxation and sensory room which is a good place to relax and unwind. Upstairs there is a large, multi functional activity room. As our care is person-centred we try to accommodate individual requests by residents and arrange the activity they would like to enjoy.
