Designated Visiting Area

At Benson House

In light of the current Covid-19 situation the team at Benson House have designed a designated indoor visiting area, so that relatives can visit their loved one's in a safe and comfortable way.

The area has direct access from outside so visitors can access easily and the glass divide means they will be able to see each other and communicate via an intercom system.

Safety measures put in place include hand sanitisation stations and thorough cleaning between each visit with time set aside between visits to help maintain social distancing. Visits from family and friends are so important for the wellbeing of our residents and this area and measures put in place means it is safe for our residents, team and visitors too.

For further information on Benson House Care Home or our visiting policy please call freephone 0808 169 8656.

Living well with Dementia

We are proud to be the only care home group to have our own unique award-winning dementia training ‘My World’ which is accredited by City and Guilds. It highlights the importance of meaningful activities and a stimulating environment for people living with dementia, in addition to addressing clinical aspects of care.

Daily life

Keeping things personal

At Benson House

The wonderful surroundings at Benson House are matched by the standard of care our team brings residents. We love learning as much as we can about the people we care for, so your loved one’s time is tailored to their individual needs, interests and preferences. This can be as small as knowing when they like to wake up, to how they like their tea, and everything in between.

We give as much independence as possible, letting individuals choose how to run the home and if they prefer dinner in front of the TV, or even dusting their own room, we’ll make it happen. Just as putting their own stamp on their bedroom, we’ll help them to personalise it with the things they love.

Every need catered for

Mealtimes are an important part of daily life at Benson House. We know eating well and the social experience of dining are key to health and wellbeing. Our chefs select a different menu each day, creating lots of home-cooked dishes with fresh ingredients to choose from. Using their in-depth knowledge of nutrition, they cater for any special diets and needs. Whether you're a three-meals-a-day person or prefer to eat little and often, our menus and snack options provide complete flexibility, view our sample menu below.

Keep doing what you love

At Benson House, there’s something to tickle everyone’s fancy – from the craft room to the hair salon, our packed schedule of events and activities, to picnics in the stunning grounds. And if residents prefer to spend one-on-one time with a member of the team, they can read the paper, pop to the shops or have a pint in the local pub. We have strong connections with the Wallingford community, many of our residents invite them to join in our activities or even run their own here. View our example activities below.

Book a respite stay for peace of mind

During this unprecedented time, many residents have chosen us for peace of mind so they feel safe in the knowledge that care and support is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week should they need it, as well as staying connected. Whether you're looking for permanent care or a respite stay, ask us about our latest availability in our homes and the extra things we are doing to keep our residents, families and teams safe.
