How much does it cost to live or stay at Chilterns?
Our room prices start at £850 per week.
Can friends and family visit at any time?
Yes, there are no set visiting hours at Chilterns Manor. Friends and family are welcome to visit whenever they like. If you’re in the process of choosing a home for your loved one and are coming to look around, it helps if you can let us know beforehand. But if you do decide to drop in unexpectedly, it’s best to come between mealtimes when staff are more likely to be free to show you the home and answer questions.
Can friends and family stay for lunch or dinner?
Yes, our residents often enjoy having guests stay for a meal. Please let us know in advance so that our chef can cater for you.
Are there nurses on duty?
No, as a residential care home our staff doesn’t include nurses. District Nurses support our residents as needed.
Are there staff on duty during the night?
Yes, we have carers on duty at all times, 365 days of the year.
Can residents come to Chilterns as a couple?
Yes, couples are very welcome. We have two large rooms on the ground floor.
Can residents bring their own furniture and other items?
We actively encourage residents to add their own touches to their rooms, whether it’s pictures for the walls, furniture, chairs, ornaments or other favourite items. Each room is furnished with a wardrobe, bed and chest of drawers. If you’d like to bring furniture please let us know before you arrive and we will make space.
Are there phones in the bedrooms?
Residents are welcome to have their own phone line installed in their room, along with internet access if they like. We are happy to help arrange it but this isn’t included in the cost of the room so residents are responsible for installation, line rental and other charges.
Can residents go away for the weekend or on holiday?
Of course. If a resident is planning to stay elsewhere at any time, simply let us know in advance and we’ll help to make sure they have everything they need while they’re away, including medication.
Is there a choice at mealtimes?
Our chef cooks a varied menu of delicious and nutritious foods. We put daily menus on the dining tables every day so residents can look ahead and let us know if they’d prefer something else. When residents first come to the home, we make sure we’re aware of any dietary requirements and our chef is always keen to know about any likes or dislikes.
