Windmill Manor is a purpose-built 60-bed dementia care home in Hurst Green, close to Oxted in Surrey which opened in November 2010. We provide personalised nursing & residential dementia care in Barchester's unique Memory Lane Communities. Our focus is very much on delivering person centred care, to enable residents to keep their normal daily routines as much as possible while maintaining their independence. Memory Lane Communities are specially designed for those living with a dementia using colour schemes that easily enable residents to identify areas within the home, yellow for dining areas for example. It also features life skills kitchens and a secure balcony & garden where residents can be involved in everyday activities such as baking, setting tables, folding washing and pottering. In addition to this we have a full time activities organiser who schedules our programme with meaningful activities that the residents enjoy and love to participate in. Not only does this include outside entertainers but quizzes, exercise classes and trips out to places of local interest using our own minibus. Windmill Manor is designed specifically with space in mind, including large lounge areas, a coffee lounge, hair salon and large courtyard garden. All bedrooms are en-suite with shower wet rooms and some of the ground floor bedrooms have doors leading out on to patio areas. Throughout the home there is a range of communal and dining facilities to suit people who enjoy socialising as well as those who prefer quieter activities.

Review of Barchester Windmill Manor Care Home on Wednesday 14 May 2014 by Janet Thomas (daughter of resident)

My mother has dementia and went into Windmill Manor last September - it was a difficult decision. I need not have worried. My mum is so happy now - giving me smiles I hadn't seen for such a long time. Clare and her team give mum the best possible care. Not only is she looked after physically but she is mentally stimulated by being encouraged to join in the many activities on hand. Mum loves her room and is always telling me how wonderful the food is!

Review of Barchester Windmill Manor Care Home on Tuesday 9 July 2013 by Sian Mitchell (Daughter in law of resident)

My father in law lives in Windmill Manor within the Dementia care residential floor called Memory Lane. Memory Lane is managed by Izabela and her team of care staff. The whole team are amazing they have transformed the quality of life for our Dad. He has an interesting and stimulating social life having the opportunity to attend varied social events both within the home and in the community. Dad has flourished physically and mentally. This home really delivers person centred care and I am able to measure the standard as I am a nurse of some 30 years+ experience! Windmill Manor is truly a Home and the staff particularly Izabela are outstanding.

I love the smiles I bring to their faces especially those residents who find it difficult to take part in the main activities schedule. The residents named me in a competition, I think I was named after "Barchester"!
