Harbour House has accommodation for up to 35 residents which can include accommodation for couples.
The rooms are built across 3 floors and are easily accessed by either a passenger lift or 2 stair lifts.
Every individual and communal room is serviced by a Courtney Thorne call system and all residents are offered the option of a pendant for added security and ‘peace of mind.’
There is a specialist bathing system in place at Harbour House to enable every resident access to a bath tailored to their personal needs and requirements.
Wi-Fi is accessible and available to all residents and their visitors.
Each resident is encouraged to bring their own furniture for their room, this ensures that they can ‘bring their home’ into Harbour House.
Most of our rooms have balconies overlooking West Bay Harbour. The balconies are large enough to take tables and chairs and we encourage residents to have planters and hanging baskets.
All rooms have telephone and television installation points.
There is plenty of wardrobe and drawer space in each room.
Please phone 01308 423277 to enquire about current vacancies.
Our colonnade is a bright and airy seating section that provides a meeting point, a conversation and ‘catching up’ area and a place to watch the ‘world go by.’
The lounge/diner is an open plan space that encourages and inspires friendship and laughter.
Residents and staff are able to access the ‘Quiet Room’ where they can spend time thinking, praying or even considering. This room is used by everyone for a variety of purposes including Holy Communion for those who do not follow the Quaker tradition and is considered to be very special to everyone in Harbour House. Families are more than welcome to use this room for larger social gatherings with their loved ones.
We believe resident’s health, emotional and spiritual well-being benefit by living and sharing areas of our home together.
All residents are given the opportunity to be involved in the creation of menus, in particular our vegetarian residents and those with specific dietary requirements. Our kitchen team regularly visit Harbour House residents to ask about recipe ideas and favourite meals they would like to see on the menu. We make sure that everyone is made aware of the day’s menu early in the day, this means that they can plan their meal for the day without feeling under pressure if they want to choose something different. We always have a selection of menu options available and will support diners’ requirements and choices where possible. The kitchen staff pride themselves in their use of fresh, locally sourced ingredients and home cooking.
Breakfast is served in the dining room at 8.30 in the morning. Fresh fruit, toast and cereal are always available and a cooked breakfast is served daily. Residents can have their breakfast in their rooms should they wish.
A three-course lunch is served at 12.30, and on Sunday we provide wine with lunch. We actively encourage all residents to eat lunch in the dining room as this is an extremely social time for everyone at Harbour House.
A three-course light supper is served at 6 o’clock in the evening.
During the evening residents are also offered a choice of snack and drink from our drinks trolley.
Whilst refreshments are available at any time, we do hold social tea/coffee times in the main lounge at 10.30am and 3.30pm every day.
If residents do not wish to attend the social tea/coffee times they can have tea and coffee delivered to their rooms.
Our domestic team is familiar with each individual resident’s specific room requirements and personal needs. They will work on a room plan with you when you arrive to make sure that they understand how you would like your room to be cleaned and the time you would like the cleaning to take place. This is to ensure that you feel comfortable and in control of your personal items and environment. You will have a key to lock your room if you want one.
