Life at Shottermill House Fulfilled Living In every one of our homes and schemes we express God’s love through compassion and care that helps people live life to the full - fulfilled living. Shottermill House has an active social life in which residents can take part or follow their own pursuits. We appreciate that each resident has their own individual interests, hobbies and pastimes, and we endeavour to support our residents to maintain this important part of their lives. Our residents are encouraged to lead the lifestyle that they choose, doing as much or as little as they want - residents can simply choose to put their feet up with a daily paper (by arrangement) or a good book from the home’s own collection. Our weekly programme includes activities such as board game and knitting groups, various craft creations including card making, flower arranging and items made for our seasonal sales. The home benefits from visits by local choirs, entertainers, school and pre-school pupils and periodically has a Farm Day with visiting animals. A hairdresser visits once a week. There is a weekly coffee morning where many friends and relatives meet. A team of “Friends of Shottermill” support and befriend our residents by coming to see them on a regular basis. Spiritual life within the home is very important. At Shottermill House we try to create a community where Christian worship, prayer and support are a core part of daily life. We have daily devotions, Sunday and mid-week services, and a monthly communion service. These are led by staff, residents and volunteers from the local churches. There are a number of churches of various denominations within easy reach of the home.

Purpose-built but with a more contemporary feel, the main lounge and dining room are on the ground floor together with the main duty rooms. There’s also a small lounge for residents’ use, to allow a quieter atmosphere for visits. To ensure the privacy and dignity of our residents, all rooms have en-suite facilities.

We enjoy showing visitors around the home, but request that if this is the purpose of your visit you call us first to arrange a suitable time.
