Life at Bramley Court
The purpose-built residential care home enjoys a variety of facilities, which include an on-site hairdressing salon and external services like visiting therapists and chiropodists.
SONAS therapy is very popular at the home, which is an innovative technique that evokes the senses through a series of one-to-one and small group sessions. The effect it has on residents is a dramatic one, particularly with dementia sufferers. They are more responsive, alert and engaged.
The home has close links with the local community and the many events the home holds, like summer fetes or 1940s days, are also open to the community. While, residents enjoy visits from local talent like entertainers and fitness instructors.

Rachael Watts, Home Manager
Rachael loves being a home manager because it allows her to make sure that the residents at Bramley Court are cared for as she would want to be cared for herself. She ensures all her staff are always caring, understanding and compassionate, sharing both Rachael and Carebase’s vision of what great care should look like.
We love to hear from family members and friends about their experiences of life at Bramley Court. How they feel about our home, the care we give and the team that make that possible.
Knowing the ways in which we have made a difference and touched the lives of those in our care – and their loved ones – is what keeps us focused on delivering the highest standard of care at all times.
To everyone who cared for Doreen, I would like to say how wonderful you all were, especially to Maureen and her team in the Cherry Unit. You made her stay at Bramley Court extremely happy and every aspect of her care was exemplary. As relatives you made us feel so welcome and very confident to leave someone so precious to us in your safe hands, and we were able to reassure all her friends and family with this as well.
We will always be grateful to all of you at Bramley Court.
With very best wishes and thanks,
Vivian, Jenny and Family
