Our cheerful and happy care home is situated on a quiet, residential side road, within easy walking distance of the River Cam. Primrose Croft is a welcoming, intimate space in which the people who live here are supported to live a fulfilling, fun life.
Situated on two floors, with two care suites and 38 bedrooms, the small scale of Primrose Croft means that all of our team and residents get to know each other really well, with an approach that is born from being a family-run home. Residents are encouraged to personalise their rooms with their own treasured belongings – bringing with them photographs, ornaments and small items of furniture, if they wish.
Our spacious lounges enable people to socialise and build new friendships, while quiet rooms make ideal areas to relax with friends or family, or just enjoy a snooze. The sensory room combines gentle light, movement, music and tactile objects designed to either calm or stimulate residents, promoting wellbeing and contentment
Our brilliant Lifestyle Coordinator has opened a nostalgic sweet shop at Primrose Croft, a magical place where residents can pick and choose old and new favourites – and reconnect with childhood memories. Many of the people living here choose to enjoy their selections in the gazebo in our large garden, which is perfect for enjoying sunny days and summer evenings. Many residents of Primrose Croft enjoy putting their green fingers to good use through tending to the flowers and plants.
Every day is different
Our Lifestyle Coordinator supports every resident to feel truly special and helps to make Primrose Croft a lively and enjoyable place to be. Every day there are events, activities and hobbies that residents can participate in, all based on their likes and dislikes as well as new things they might want to try.
From board game afternoons to arts and crafts sessions, to attending Luncheon Club trips to local venues where we enjoy delightful meals together, there's always something to enjoy.
We also promote good health and gentle exercise, with sociable Music for Health sessions that get residents energised with a fun range of exercises. The less mobile can take part too in chair-based routines, making the experience an inclusive one for all.
On top of making our own fun, we bring entertainers into Primrose Court for fantastic sing-a-longs, concerts and shows, a real highlight of every week. And come rain or shine, we love taking regular outings to local attractions, whether tea dances at the Guildhall or a gentle walk into the countryside and afternoon tea.
Mealtimes are highly important to us, as they are when everyone comes together in our two dining rooms to enjoy gorgeous food, freshly prepared by our wonderful catering team. Our chefs not only cater for different dietary needs and cultural backgrounds, but also take requests from residents, so mealtimes are filled with favourites. On birthdays and special occasions, our team bake a celebratory cake that is always enjoyed by all.
