Wellcroft is located in Gatley and stands in its own landscaped gardens, a stone’s throw from the village with all its shops, cafes and welcoming pubs.

With 42 rooms, the home offers stimulating themed areas and signposting, reminiscent of its own little community. Highlights include the French-style bistro, Wellcroft Arms pub, library area and retro shop, providing residents with new ways to engage and be stimulated. Residents can choose to buy a chocolate bar, enjoy a coffee with visitors or have their nails done in the salon. Even the laundry room is themed as a laundrette and residents are encouraged to get involved in some of the ‘household chores’ if they so wish.

With close ties to the community, Wellcroft offers intergenerational play dates with local mum’s and their children, creating lots of laughter and noise from residents and children alike.

“There is a huge sense of community at Wellcroft and we have a lot of local input from the lovely people of Gatley village. Wellcroft is a great place with great staff and it is just a joy to work there!” Lisa Martin, Previous Manager

All of our homes benefit from a dedicated Activity and Lifestyle Facilitator, affectionately known as ALF’s. They are responsible for delivering a varied and engaging daily programme of events, excursions and activities for all our residents. Find out more here.

The team consists of several Dementia champions who have the experience and knowledge to create a stimulating and safe home for any resident who suffers from dementia.

Since my mother has been in this care home she has been looked after so well by the professional and caring staff. My sister and I could not be happier with the care she has received. Some old people decline when going to live in a care home, but our mother has done the opposite and improved. In fact, we both agree that if it wasn't for the excellent care she receives she wouldn't be with us today. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this home to someone with an elderly relative. The staff deserve to be recognised for their hard work and dedication.
