Cochrane Care Home is a modern purpose-built home with 65 rooms, all with en-suite facilities. There are several comfortable lounges and dining rooms, all of which are well-appointed and offer the opportunity for residents to socialise comfortably.

Daily activities

Our activities coordinator organises a weekly schedule of activities and entertainment to keep life fun and engaging for our residents.

The team is always looking to add new, meaningful activities into the monthly schedule. Recently, residents embarked on a language course that had them participating in weekly lessons. The classes were so popular that some have asked to continue learning during their one-to-one sessions.

Residents can explore the local community and beyond through trips and excursions in our minibus.


Our chef prepares a delicious menu of three meals a day plus snacks. Personal preferences and dietary requirements are fully catered for so that all residents look forward to mealtimes.

What people say about us?

We couldn't be happier or more grateful for the care and attention shown to her by all the staff in her almost thirteen-year stay.

Daughter of Resident

Our brother has received excellent care since the day he arrived. Staff are very caring, professional and are sensitive to all his needs.


I wanted my wife to be looked after in a care home as she would be looked after at home. I think she gets that at Cochrane Care Home.


I cannot thank Cochrane House enough for the way they have cared for my mum. Especially during this terrible pandemic. She is coping really well not seeing family just now and it is all to do with the care she receives. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
