Situated in Styal, a tranquil suburb in Cheshire, Eden Mansions is a classic dwelling – homely in appearance and atmosphere. Set amongst open fields, there is a feeling of being in the countryside, yet it is not far from Wilmslow, making local amenities accessible.
Encircling a courtyard the house is integrated with the grounds to provide several exits onto secure gardens that enable residents to move freely without feeling restricted.
In keeping with current theories and practices relating to suitable environments for people with Dementia, the home has been decorated to enable stimulation and orientation. This has been achieved by applying different colour schemes in distinct areas in addition to special signage; this enables our residents to find their way and know where they are. There are themed pictures around the corridors that prompt reminiscence and a fully equipped sensory room.
Types of Care
The home operates as three separate wings so that care and support can be focused to meet the varying types and levels of need of the people living in the home.
Capesthorne wing (27 bedrooms) provides care for people who are in the early to middle stages of dementia. The primary aim is to assess needs in the context of life history, personality, known habits and lifestyle, emotional health and medical conditions. Encouragement and support are provided in daily living activities in accordance with individual choices and preferences.
Ashley wing (23 bedrooms) provides care for people who are in the middle to late stages of dementia and require emotional / psychological support in addition to nursing care for physical and medical conditions. The primary aim is to assess needs in the context of life history, personality, known habits and lifestyle, emotional health and medical conditions. High levels of encouragement and assistance are provided in daily living activities in accordance with individual choices and preferences while clinical health risks are managed.
Dementia / Mental Disorder
Chester wing (23 bedrooms) provides nursing care for people who have dementia and / or mental disorders that result in complex behavioural issues. The primary aim is to understand the causes or triggers in the context of life history, personality, known habits and lifestyle, emotional health and medical conditions. Support or supervision is provided to overcome their difficulties, thereby preventing or reducing the behaviours, as far as possible. Here, residents receive high levels of psychological and nursing intervention and support or assistance with activities of daily living.
Stanneylands (25 bedrooms) provides care for people with enduring physical conditions or conditions resulting in physical disability. The primary aim is to assess needs in the context of remaining abilities, habits and lifestyle. Support or assistance is then provided in daily living according to individual choices and preferences while clinical health risks are managed.
We can facilitate long or short term care, respite, convalescence, placement whilst waiting for specialist external assessment for a permanent care package, hospital admission avoidance and packages for people with complex or unstable needs (Continuing Healthcare). Dedicated care is also provided for people who are approaching the end of their life.

The healthcare that my Dad receives has always been good and we are kept informed of any changes or accidents he may have had. The home is always welcoming. The staff are polite and attentive to both residents and family and it was a key factor that there weren’t any unpleasant smells when I first visited the home, which is still maintained now. The staff seem happy and professional.”

We, as a family, cannot thank and praise the staff enough for the care our mum has received whilst staying at Eden Mansions. Thank you.
I love Eden Mansions, It is clean (no smells), very friendly, bright. The staff are amazing, they are polite, very caring, very professional and do maintain my father’s confidentiality. The residents are NEVER left alone; the staff are always there to watch over them. If I get to the step when I need a nursing home I want to go to Eden Mansions, cause I know I will be well looked after and very happy
I have nothing but praise; you care for my father extremely well! Thank you! I did mention about the evening meals which were quite often poor. However, as Always this has been rectified and the meals are better now.
Eden Mansions is an excellent care home. Doris Howick is an inspirational leader and the high standards she sets filters down to all the staff and carers. Our father is very well looked after and we couldn’t be happier with the home.
What CQC said about us: Excerpts from the September 2013 Inspection Report
Relatives we spoke with during the visit spoke highly of the care provided. Comments included: "My X has been really happy here, he is well looked after" and "Being here gives me piece of mind that my X is being cared for where they have time and experience to know what they are doing and do it well".
We found care was provided in an environment which was modern, clean and well organised. Visitors we spoke with told us: "It is always spotless; I have never seen anything out of place, even when staff are really busy".
Staff we spoke with confirmed the employment process and commented that they received a robust induction and always felt supported. One person said: "I have been here a month I really enjoy it, I feel really well supported as the manager is available at all time even weekends. I had an excellent induction I was shadowing someone until I felt confident. I can say this is the most supported I have felt in any job". Another staff member told us: "I am still on induction and shadowing one of the nurse's. Everything has been great for me as I am newly qualified; here I feel I have time to get to know the role without pressure. I am lucky to be offered this role and the people are lovely".
We noted there were adequate numbers of staff available to give appropriate support, with at least one staff member sitting at each table. Sandwiches and other finger food was available if people did not want the two choices of hot food. We observed the meal was not at all rushed. People were offered second helpings and staff ensured that everyone ate something.
