Safe Visits

Welcome to Maycroft Care Home in Royston, situated in the village of Meldreth and just five miles from the town centre. Nestled in the heart of the countryside, our warm and friendly home is only 15 miles from Cambridge and just off the A10. If you are visiting via public transport, local train services from Royston and Cambridge stop at Meldreth station, which is a 10-minute walk from Maycroft.

Our expert team offer round-the-clock care for Residents, following our ethos of person-centred care. We focus on making sure each Resident has their emotional, medical, spiritual and nutritional needs met. In doing so, we hope to empower them to lead the lives they choose and enjoy being part of the Maycroft family.

Residents are encouraged to personalise their rooms straight away, making their space as cosy and homely as they wish. They’ll be embraced into our small, happy community, where there’s the opportunity to have new experiences and make new friends. Whether they are enjoying our indoor activities programme or making the most of our glorious gardens, Residents can lead full, busy lives at Maycroft.

Person-centred care

We take a holistic approach to care, which focuses on all Residents’ needs. To us, their emotional, spiritual and nutritional wellbeing is as essential as medical or physical care. Each one impacts the rest, so if a Resident’s emotional needs are met, they are likely to be more resilient to other pressures and unhappiness. It’s our mission to ensure they continue to feel well physically and mentally.

Compassion and kindness are the guiding principles for our care team. It’s vital to us that a Resident and their loved ones play an active role in discussions and decisions around their care. Together, we ensure Residents feel safe and supported to live the life they choose.

Living life to the full

Our Care Home in Royston has a dedicated Activities Co-ordinator who devises a schedule full of fun-filled sessions. The activities are designed to provide mental stimulation, get Residents moving and offer the chance to socialise. Residents favourites include crafts, chair-based exercise, games, bingo, quizzes and musical sessions.

We’re lucky to have strong ties with the community and regularly welcome visitors. There’s often in-house entertainment, BBQs in the summer, seasonal fetes and we take Residents for days out at nearby attractions. We also have a beautician on-site for pampering sessions, as well as weekly visits from our hairdresser.

Dining and nutrition

Good nutrition is vital for good health, so we ensure our Residents eat healthy, fresh meals every day. Our chefs create dishes using the fruit and vegetables we grow in our garden, as well as locally sourced produce where possible. There are plenty of options, including Residents’ favourite dishes and seasonal specials.

When Residents arrive, the kitchen team will find out which foods they like to eat and if there are any dietary requirements to meet. Families are very welcome to book a table to dine with Residents whenever they choose. Our talented Italian chef also runs a cookery school for Residents to watch and learn how to create culinary magic.

Covid-secure visiting

Our number one priority is keeping Residents safe and connected with their loved ones. We have recently created a COVID-secure, indoor visiting space to ensure that Residents can socialise with their family and friends in warmth and comfort.

“What’s lovely about working here is our family atmosphere. Residents are at the heart of everything we do, and we care for them as we would our own relatives. It’s wonderful to know we are making a difference and that Residents love living here as much as we all love working here.
