Residential care for older adults living with dementia.
About The Peele
Acquired by Equilibrium Healthcare in October 2020, The Peele is a residential care home for adults over 65-years-old living with dementia. Currently undergoing changes to improve the layout and facilities of the service, at our final capacity we will be able to provide care for 108 adults who may be informal or subject to certain conditions under the Mental Health Act 1983.
Our person-centred approach takes a holistic view of our service user’s overall care, creating care plans that capture each person’s needs, choices and preferences. We take the time to get to know people as individuals: working with family members to understand their life histories, cultural and religious beliefs, and communication needs.
Person-centred care that respects people as individuals.
Shared gardens, communal library – not able to access building site and activity room.
Dedicated activity coordinators and entertainment, parties, and celebrations accessible to all.
En-suite rooms that we encourage residents to personalise.
Chef-cooked meal choices and nutritious snack trollies, smoothies and adapted diets catered for, service users involved in menus.
Tailored care plans created in conjunction with families, friends and the individual, promoting the individual’s wishes, culture and needs.

The Peele News
Read our latest friends and
The Peele is a modern purpose-built care home set within its own private grounds. Designed to promote individuality and a private space to feel like home, service users are encouraged to personalise their bedrooms – all of which are en-suite. Shared gardens with benches and sensory planting offer a place to walk and relax, while an activity room, library and living rooms offer shared spaces to socialise and take part in activities such as bingo, dominoes, arts and crafts, and tabletop gardening.
We’re investing heavily in the training and recruitment of our staff to deliver services that focus on the comfort, dignity and independence of those in our care. We have one activity coordinator who is solely dedicated to the wellbeing of our residents: encouraging one-on-one activities based on individual interests and group interactions such as school visits, local entertainers and themed food nights. We always think outside the box and believe that technology can help to bring people closer together, using Facebook portals, iPads and virtual sessions help to keep residents engaged with the community, connect families with their loved ones, and support those whose first language isn’t English or with communication challenges.
As the latest member of the Equilibrium family, we’ve been on a journey with staff and service users to bring our culture of care, respect and creativity to The Peele. One area where we’ve made supersized changes: is to the food. Firm believers that eating should be an enjoyable experience that brings people closer together, we’ve recruited a new chef from the high-end hospitality industry to curate a menu of freshly cooked meals and carefully designed soft food and modified diets. Printed menus, table settings and background music further help to transform mealtimes into a dining experience that focuses on choice, dignity and pleasure. In fact, when it comes to food at The Peele, it’s fair to say we’re making a meal of it.
