The Sands Care Home

Welcome To the Sands Care Home

Opened in 1996 on the site of the Grand Hotel. 5 floors, 1st residential, 2nd, 3rd and 4th nursing. Top floor kitchen, laundry, offices, training room for staff to receive in house training. 2 new extensions added creating 18 new beds to cater for demand.


All single bedrooms, most en-suite. All bedrooms are tastefully decorated and have a TV and nurse call bell. If residents wish they can bring some of their personal items and furniture.


We offer a very extensive menu of home cooked meals including popular dishes such as hotpot, shepherds pie and fish & chips every Friday. Residents have a say when planning these and may take meals in their rooms when required. Special diets are catered for.


Each floor has its own large lounge and spacious dining room over-looking the Bay. Bath/shower rooms situated on all floors, easy wheelchair access throughout the building. Ground floor is Residential Care and the first, second and third floors are Nursing Care.


Relatives and friends are welcome at any time throughout the day. (We do ask that residents are not disturbed at mealtimes.) If you require any further details please do not hesitate to contact us.


There are regular activities organised by our own Social Activities Organiser, Jacqui. These include Bingo, which is held twice a week and various other classes such as Painting, Music & Movement, Crafts, Quizzes and Reminiscing of Past Times.

An entertainer attends The Sands once a month, singing the residents' favourite songs. Pantomimes are held at Christmas time, and charity fund-raising events are held throughout the year, in which residents are welcome to get involved.
