Eden Mansions is situated in Styal, a tranquil suburb near Wilmslow in Cheshire. Homely in appearance and atmosphere and set amongst open fields, there is a feeling of being in the countryside, yet it is not far local amenities.
Eden Mansions surrounds a courtyard, and several exits onto secure gardens enables residents to move around freely without feeling restricted.
The interior has been decorated to help our residents find their way around, know where they are, and to stimulate their senses. This is in keeping with current theories and practices about suitable environments for people with Dementia. For example, we have applied different colour schemes in various areas and put up special signage. There are also themed pictures in the corridors which prompt reminiscence and we have a fully-equipped sensory room.
Types of Care
The home operates as three separate wings so that care and support can be provided to meet the different types and levels of need of our residents.

What CQC said about us: Excerpts from the September 2013 Inspection Report
Relatives we spoke with during the visit spoke highly of the care provided. Comments included: "My X has been really happy here, he is well looked after" and "Being here gives me piece of mind that my X is being cared for where they have time and experience to know what they are doing and do it well".
We found care was provided in an environment which was modern, clean and well organised. Visitors we spoke with told us: "It is always spotless; I have never seen anything out of place, even when staff are really busy".
Staff we spoke with confirmed the employment process and commented that they received a robust induction and always felt supported. One person said: "I have been here a month I really enjoy it, I feel really well supported as the manager is available at all time even weekends. I had an excellent induction I was shadowing someone until I felt confident. I can say this is the most supported I have felt in any job". Another staff member told us: "I am still on induction and shadowing one of the nurse's. Everything has been great for me as I am newly qualified; here I feel I have time to get to know the role without pressure. I am lucky to be offered this role and the people are lovely".
We noted there were adequate numbers of staff available to give appropriate support, with at least one staff member sitting at each table. Sandwiches and other finger food was available if people did not want the two choices of hot food. We observed the meal was not at all rushed. People were offered second helpings and staff ensured that everyone ate something.
