A lot can be said through our hands — a welcome, a goodbye, a friendly embrace, a playful gesture, a sign of affection, or just the delivery of a cup of tea. At Radius Clare House, we offer more than just an extra set of hands; we strive to improve your life at the stage you're at.

Radius Clare House is a modern, purpose-built care home architecturally designed to meet the specific needs of our elderly residents. We are in a peaceful, tranquil neighbourhood, yet close to a full range of services and shops.
We are known for our warm, friendly, home-like environment and family atmosphere, and we are proud of the individual care we can provide.

We provide a personal free Wi-Fi connection for residents to stay connected with loved ones, access news, shop online, and stream movies or TV shows.
We also provide a free elder-friendly phone with oversized buttons and covers all mobile and toll calls. Residents can bring their existing phone numbers with them when they move in.
We like families to stay connected; they are welcome anytime to visit. A monthly newsletter goes out to families, detailing upcoming events and photos from recent activities and happenings at Clare House.

The kitchen prepares fresh, nutritious meals that are tasty and inviting. There are three main meals, with two options provided at dinner. There are also snacks throughout the day and a cup of tea ready to be poured often.
The menu is on a four-week cycle and is designed with residents in mind and approved by a dietician.

Clare House offers an extensive activity programme that promotes self-esteem and personal fulfilment.
They aim to stimulate cognitive functioning, nurture their residents, and provide purposeful activities that result in full and enriched lives full of fun, laughter, and smiles.
This is a rewarding experience for everyone involved.
