Your next chapter awaits...

We are delighted to welcome you to Fernhill House in Worcester.

Fernhill House is a new, state-of-the-art community for people over 65 years of age. Our ambition is to provide a vibrant, stimulating place to spend your autumn years. We also aim to do things a little differently to other homes in the area.

We have two communities in which to make your home. The ground floor provides a stunning place in which to live. From the moment you arrive in our chauffeur-driven car, you will be warmly welcomed into our thriving café area which is the hub of our home. Here, you and your family can indulge in freshly baked goods, great coffee or something a little stronger if it takes your fancy, we think that a glass of wine, a sherry or a gin and tonic when you’re with family and friends (old and new) makes conversation flow that little bit more!

We have spacious areas to sit and chat or to find a cosy nook to read your favourite book or morning paper. Our community rooms also include a library, a friendship room where you can entertain in private if you would like. There is no charge for this, you just need to book it – speaking of charges – we only have one charge – an all-inclusive price that will include meals and drinks for you and your family, trips out, our chauffeur-driven vehicle, salon treatments and any hobbies that you wish to maintain – or maybe try out for the first time! We think this gives you peace of mind. We will introduce you to our hand-picked team of dedicated staff and help you to settle in to one of our spacious and beautiful suites. We have built our home in a Georgian style with fabulous sash windows that really let in the light and most look out on to our leafy grounds with dedicated garden spaces.

On our first floor, we have a specialist community for those living with a dementia. Here, maintaining an active life, full of purpose is at the heart of what we do. We have designed hobby rooms, a tea shop and pub to socialise in, lift access to a secure, sensory garden and a stimulating beautiful environment. Our team are dedicated to ensuring you have companionship and a bit of fun. Every day will be different but we will also help with making spaces and routines feel familiar and comforting.

Companionship and real family values are at the heart of what we do. It really is our intention to provide a home away from home with all the standards of daily living you will be used to. Our team are trained and dedicated to ensuring all our residents with a wide range of needs have a gracious and fulfilled quality of life.

We are rightly proud of what we have achieved for our residents and we invite everyone who is interested in the home to visit us in person. Please contact me to arrange a convenient time – I very much look forward to meeting you soon.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff at Fernhill House for the dedication and exceptional level of care given to my father. We are delighted that he is safe, happy and are also greatly impressed by the attention to detail and the facilities provided.”

Elizabeth Kilburn, May 2017

A different approach

We believe that all of our staff are not only a talented bunch of people, but that they all have hobbies, skills, talents and interests that can be shared with the people who live at Fernhill House. So we have moved away from having dedicated activities staff to involve our entire team in ensuring there is plenty of stimulating activity and leisure pursuits going on every day. As well as scheduled events, we will have lots of ad hoc moments as well. To see what is going on at any time see the activity links below.

Author and broadcaster Gervaise Phinn and the co-founder of a national charity aimed at improving patient care are among a selection of guest speakers booked to entertain and enlighten family, friends and residents of Fernhill House over the coming months.   

The free talks are open to the wider public and drinks and nibbles are offered for added appeal!   As well as helping set up Kissing it Better, which harnesses the specialist skills of local community groups to make a difference to patients, nurse Jill Fraser has written a comic novel about life in “muddle England.”   

She will be revealing the inspiration behind More tea less vicar at the talk which runs from 6pm until 8pm on Thursday July 13th.   Jill trained at the Florence Nightingale School of Nursing at St Thomas' Hospital in London, was awarded a scholarship by The Kings Fund to work in America and for  the last 20 years she has presented health features for many TV and radio programmes including Woman’s Hour, Newsround and BBC Breakfast Time.   

Novelist and writer Prof Phinn, who is most well known for his autobiographical memoirs set in the Yorkshire Dales, will be recounting humorous tales of his life working in education when he visits on Thursday July 27th between 6 and 8pm.   Other speakers poised to grace the rather splendid interior of Fernhill House in Fernhill Heath over the coming months include Wimbledon reporter Garry Richardson, Rob Smith who twice overcame cancer and skied to both the North and South Poles, and former footballer and stadium design expert Paul Fletcher. 

To book any of these free events and find out about future talks, contact or call 01905 679300.
