Maycroft Residential Care Home

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.

The B Happie Mission

The B Happie Mission

Our mission to promote happy residents and happy staff is underlined by our groundbreaking ‘B Happie Charter’. We achieve these values by conducting person centred activities and events with a whole home approach, by recognising and appreciating the amazing work that our teams do and by prioritising mental health and wellness.

A message from our Manager

“I have been qualified as Registered Nurse since 1997 in my home country Philippines. Before I moved in the UK I was working in Singapore hospital.
I count myself fortunate to have gained so much valuable experience. My career in the Care sector started 17 years ago and I have held a range of positions.
Before joining Maycroft I was working in one of Advinia’s home in Norfolk as a Deputy Manager.

Whilst working in care I have been lucky enough to received several awards . In 2021, I was a Regional Finalist in the Great British awards East of England for Frontline leader. This year I was a Finalist for Inspirational Senior Care worker in Star of Social care awards.

For me this is not only a job but a vocation. I have a passion for making differences in peoples lives and for our residents to have a compassionate and quality care. To always make sure that their wellbeing are being prioritized. To do my absolute best to make sure that they are being treated with dignity and respect.

I look forward to seeing Maycroft continue to grow and to supporting our lovely residents and my colleagues as that happens.”
