What we offer

The comfort and welfare of our residents is at the heart of everything we do. We are committed to providing personal, high quality care to all our residents and treat our residents with dignity and respect.

Why choose Clayton Church Homes?

At Clayton Church Homes, we want you to Be You. Becoming a part of our family does not mean you have to change your lifestyle or interests. We understand the importance of healthy ageing while maintaining your independence as much as possible and that’s why we are committed to providing care, activities and opportunities that support you.

Understanding you

When entering our nursing homes, we will ask you to complete a “Key to Me” form describing your interests and lifestyle. This helps us customise activities and programs for you.

We offer a great balance of private and communal living, and welcome personal visitors to ensure family bonds and friendships are maintained.

Short-term respite care

Short-term respite accommodation is available and can be arranged through the Site Receptionists at each location, or you can submit an enquiry form.

Support for carers

At Clayton Church Homes, our workforce is as important as our residents. We treat all residents and staff as part of our family and understand the close, personal bond formed between carers and residents. We understand how difficult it can be for our carers when a resident departs, and we strive to ensure they receive the necessary support.

Visit our Careers or Volunteering pages to learn more about joining Clayton Church Homes as a carer.

At Clayton Church Homes, you will be supported, be respected, be independent, and above all encouraged to Be You.
