In keeping with our philosophy, Rogers House conveys a warm and welcoming atmosphere, from the moment you walk in. The home provides care and support for older people within a family friendly environment.
Situated in a lovely residential suburb of Gillingham, the purpose-built care home has a great reputation in the local area and has developed some exceptional relationships within the community.
Residents dine together in the cheerful and airy dining room and many like to relax with the morning paper in the bright conservatory. There are plenty of comfortable homely areas for relaxing, as well as a purpose-built activity room. We are also lucky enough to have ample outside space, including a paved seating area, plenty of grass and lots of beautiful plants.
We have a great team of staff, many of whom have been with us for a long time, which we believe contributes a great deal to our homely atmosphere. Our cat, Rusty, certainly helps too. So do call in for a cup of tea and to see for yourself what our home is like.
As well as our excellent outside links, we have lots going on inside too. Our activity coordinators support residents to devise and implement a varied calendar of activities and events, which offers something for everyone.
Activities vary but can include crafting, baking and animal therapy visits, amongst others. We regularly enjoy outings, whether that is simply a walk in the Bluebells or a trip to the coast.
Every Monday, our dining room is transformed into a pre-school for our weekly toddler group, which our residents absolutely love. We also have a great relationship the local grammar school, who often invite us in for tea.
Our activity coordinators support residents during one to one time too, assisting and encouraging them to continue with their own hobbies.
