'We feel that this is an opportunity to utilise this special location at Canal Vue, to offer a high standard of residential care' 


Canal Vue Home Manager


The dining experience is part of daily life, home cooked food is a high priority, with a varied menu to suit all tastes and special dietary needs.

A variety of activities are scheduled daily, our receptive staff are receptive to individual needs and abilities and are keen to provide interaction and encourage involvement.

'Although moving Dad into residential care was a very difficult decision and we'd both had a rough few months, the staff at Canal Vue made it as easy as it could possibly have been. They took time to get to know him and he settled very quickly thanks to their patience and care. In all of his time there he felt safe, loved and important and you can't ask for any more than that. I was always made to feel welcome and I never doubted that he was in safe, caring hands. I would recommend Canal Vue to anyone and everyone who is looking for a warm refuge for an elderly relative.'

This is an incredible care home. I was visiting my friend yesterday and there was so much going on. Singing, dancing, games, the staff were joining in and having fun. How wonderful to see people working in a care home truly loving their job. This home should be on the news for what a great home looks like. Thank you, I was so impressed and can not wait to visit next month. Friend of resident

Revamp for Christmas at Melbourne House

As well as the usual Christmas decorations, the communal areas at Melbourne House have been made even more cosy and 'user friendly';

 A cloakroom like area has been created where residents can use the hat stand and coiff their hair which is proving popular. A new seating area, for when friends and relatives visit, offers a cosy private area for chatting. New wooden chairs in the dining area, with padded seating, look good too.

Residents have already been enjoying beauty and aromatherapy treatments and a new retro wall is planned for 2016, displaying traditional black and white photographs from residents, relatives and friends.

Activities at Melbourne are driven forward by the enthusiastic coordinator Trayce Pullen - pictured right with residents and visitors at the recent successful card design event, sponsored by the Sherwood Group.

Music is likely to be prevalent on next years activities schedule, recognised as one of the best 'therapies' for older people. City Arts as part of their Imagine Programme, in conjunction with Lakeside Arts will be visiting early in 2016 to coordinate musical events.

Trayce has forged good links with the local college and following students recent voluntary work, they are planning to revisit in the summer. 'It is really rewarding all round when students participate at the home and the older people love it too' said Trayce
