The Gardens - click to view pictures

The gardens at Derriford House are large, with plenty of seating areas. There's places to relax and simply enjoy the gardens or our residents can take up the opportunity of a spot of hands on gardening in the raised planting area. The kitchen and residents benefit from the range of fresh produce and culinary herbs the garden produces. Our gardeners provide us with colourful borders, hanging baskets and plants throughout the year.

Laundry

With all the concerns about infections such as MRSA and C-Difficile it is important to have confidence going into a communal living environment that cross infections will not occur. With this in mind we have installed a state of the art ozone based laundry system that is guaranteed to kill MRSA and C-Difficile at normal washing temperatures - 40°. This system was featured on BBC1's the ONE Show. Ozone based systems are the only way to GUARANTEE that the bugs are killed - chemical solutions have been proven not effective and even boil wash does not eliminate them. We also ensure staff are not allowed to take uniforms home and all uniforms are laundered via the ozone system.

Telephone

Every bedroom has a telephone that can be directly dialled from outside. Outgoing calls are chargeable and this facility can be restricted if required. All phones are connected to our switchboard and on request we can divert incoming calls to the staff in cases where someone is away or ill.

Television

Our Residents have a choice of television viewing. We distribute signals for all TV options to most rooms. This gives the Resident a choice of standard terrestrial TV, Freeview, Freesat, Freesat HD and full Sky and Sky HD viewing. We also have an in-house DVD/video channel where if a Resident feels unable to attend a communal viewing, they can see the film in their own room. There is WiFi throughout the Home.

Information System

We have a Derriford House Information System that is distributed to TV’s in all rooms and is similar to a hotel system showing forthcoming activities, menus, Home news etc.

Entertainment

We have an Activities Organiser who liaises with the Residents about
what entertainment they would enjoy. We have frequent visits from
singers, poetry readers, acting companies etc., and also organise group and individual outings to the theatre, museums and even trips to the seaside. We also have a mobile farm that visits. Local shopping trips can be provided by arrangement.

" You always made us feel very welcome and supported us in anything we wished for mum, and made us feel as if Derriford were part of our extended family."
