Care in the Community ALDE HOUSE STUMPWELL HOUSING ASSOCIATION LIMITED Alde House has been established in Penn for over 45 years, and was started by a group of local christians who were expressing concerns that there was no provision for the elderly in the village. The primary mission for Alde House is to provide a safe, comfortable and happy environment for all their residents. The charming property with scenic views is an ideal setting for you or your loved one, and is a pleasant place to visit. The team of highly dedicated and experienced carers are fully resourced, and treat each resident with respect and understanding. “My father was carefully assessed before being offered a place. He was made very welcome and nothing was too much trouble for members of staff. Family and visitors were made to feel very welcome. My father was treated with dignity and respect. He was closely monitored and appropriate medical intervention was sought whenever necessary. The manager and staff were extremely helpful at the end of my father's life. I don't feel they could have done any more to make his short stay more comfortable and peaceful” - Gill W All residents at Alde House are guaranteed independence for as long as they are able, enjoy a peaceful yet stimulating environment, and to receive top quality care “My mother became a resident in August 2015. The manager and staff made her feel so welcome, their care and attention is exceptional. When visiting Mum it is very apparent the staff love their job, they have time for everyone, nothing is ever too much trouble. The food is exceptional, it's the first thing my Mum tells everyone when they visit. The home is always very clean” – Karen M FOR FURTHER INFORMATION, PLEASE VISIT THE WEBSITE www.aldehouse.org.uk
