Sanctuary Care

Offering a warm, nurturing approach to elderly care for over 30 years, Sanctuary Care is one of the UK’s leading providers of residential, nursing and dementia care. With over 100 care homes across England and Scotland, Sanctuary provides individually tailored care in a safe, welcoming environment.

At the heart of the Sanctuary Care approach is a commitment to enable residents to live happy, fulfilled lives, surrounded by comfort, compassion and meaningful activities. Moving into a care home marks a major life transition, so Sanctuary focuses on respecting residents’ independence, privacy and dignity.

Sanctuary’s person-centred ethos aims to celebrate each individual, involving them in decisions about their care. Specially trained staff take time to get to know residents, learning about their unique life stories, interests and preferences. Care plans are then tailored to match individual needs and routines as much as possible.

The expertise of Sanctuary’s 10,000 strong workforce ensures residents are exceptionally well cared for. Ongoing training and support equip staff with the latest skills and knowledge to enhance every aspect of care delivery. Sanctuary also works closely with healthcare partners such as the NHS, charities and universities to champion best practice and develop ever more innovative services.

At Sanctuary Care Homes, experienced chefs prepare nutritious, home-cooked meals to suit all dietary needs. A diverse calendar of activities ranging from baking and gardening to concerts and bus trips means there are always new experiences to enjoy. Regular visits from hairdressers, chaplains and therapists complement the excellent amenities.

The safety and security of residents is paramount. Sanctuary Care homes provide contemporary, thoughtfully designed spaces with 24/7 on-site staffing. Advanced assistive technologies, such as electronic care planning systems, further support residents’ independence.

Specialist services catering for diverse needs allow Sanctuary to provide appropriate care for all individuals:

  • Dementia Care – Sanctuary’s dementia specialists create reassuring routines using therapies such as Reminiscence, music and sensory stimulation. Secure gardens and activity spaces provide freedom within a safe environment.
  • Respite and Short Breaks – Respite stays provide opportunities for recuperation and care while giving usual caregivers a break. Stays can range from a day to several weeks with all amenities included.
  • End of Life Care – Compassionate, dedicated end of life care provided in partnership with external hospices ensures comfort, dignity and respect during residents’ final days. Families are supported before and after bereavement.

Across its care homes, Sanctuary offers a choice of luxury, classic and contemporary living options with payment plans to suit individual budgets and needs. However, high standards and person-centred care remain universal throughout.
Progressive investment sees Sanctuary continually enhance its services and facilities. Recent initiatives include developing sector-leading specialist care suites and trialling innovative technologies such as virtual reality headsets to enrich residents’ well-being.
At the heart of every Sanctuary Care home is the fundamental belief that later life should be fulfilling and fun. The team’s passion, dedication and care ensure residents enjoy every day to the full, backed by the facilities, amenities and comforts of a true home from home.

With its warm, individual approach and unwavering commitment to kindness, Sanctuary Care protects and nurtures society’s most vulnerable. As demand for elderly care rises, Sanctuary aims to keep expanding its outstanding services so many more families can entrust loved ones to its safekeeping, reassured they will be cherished as individuals.
