About Amberley Care Home

Amberley Care Home is located in Sale, Greater Manchester, in a residential neighbourhood. Nursing, Dementia, Residential, and Respite Care are among the care services we proudly provide. We take pride in giving as much assistance as is necessary to ensure that each of our residents lives a rich, fulfilling, and meaningful life. It’s essential that residents keep their passions and interests, and that they make the most of each day by doing what they enjoy. Visitors are welcome at any time, and we have an open-door policy for family and loved ones.

Our Values at Amberley

At Amberley Care Home, we cherish the time we get to spend with each and every one of our residents, and love learning all about the extraordinary lives they lead. That is why it is our responsibility at Amberley to ensure that all of our residents receive the care, love, and attention they deserve from our teams, no matter what.

To ensure that each and every one of our residents receive the appropriate degree of care for their situation, our teams work incredibly closely with our residents, and guarantee that they get the around-the-clock care they deserve. We’re here to provide a helping hand anytime you might need it, whether you need a friendly face to talk to, or just a little additional reassurance.

Amberley Care Home has been developed with our residents in mind. In all of our residences, we strive to create a friendly environment in which visitors feel like they are truly a member of the Amberley family. We take great satisfaction in giving the greatest quality care to our residents, and providing expert guidance and assistance to their family is a vital step towards being the most efficient carers we can be.

Since the day we first opened our doors, we’ve recognised and appreciated the value of working together as a team to make someone’s day better. We’ve always placed a significant focus on developing relationships between staff, residents, and their families, which has allowed us to have a much deeper understanding of our residents than we could have ever initially thought of.

This has also allowed us to create tailored care plans and solutions for each of our residents, which has been important to our long-term success. We take great satisfaction in creating a home where our residents have complete access to a variety of amenities that are certain to make their days more enjoyable and improve their lives tenfold.

Our principles at Amberley highlight the assets that each resident contributes and brings to the table, and we recognise each person’s uniqueness and array of skills. Our beliefs emphasise independence, decency, and providing excellent, individually tailored care to all of our residents. We are committed to ensuring that our residents are pursuing the lifestyles they want to and bring them the most joy, as well as assisting their relatives and friends in any way in which we can.

Respect and Individuality

We appreciate how difficult it is to make the decision to enter a care facility, whether you’re looking for yourself or on behalf of somebody who you love. However, no matter your situation or what you’re considering, we don’t see why our residents’ sense of independence should suddenly vanish. We want to make sure you can continue to do the activities you enjoy in the same way you have in the past. One of Amberley’s key ideals is that everyone deserves a comfortable and dignified life in our home in the metropolitan borough of Greater Manchester.

Customised Care Assessments

Every single one of our Amberley residents is unique, so why should their healthcare be any different? We are extremely proud of the care we provide to each of our residents, as well as the customised care plans we create to guarantee they receive the best possible care. It is always a great honour for us to get to know all of our residents on a one-on-one basis, and it allows us to provide unrivalled around-the-clock care to each and every one of them.
