Designed for exceptional care

From nursing, convalescent and respite to specialist dementia care, Olive Tree House has been specified and equipped for the delivery of exceptional care. In addition to luxurious lounges and dining rooms, each floor enjoys its own activity, relaxation and multi-faith rooms, giving residents flexible options for active and fulfilling lifestyles. Residents are also able to move freely between floors, with a separate lift within the secure residential section of the building.

The dementia-friendly roof garden offers fabulous views across Bristol, whilst facilities such as the sensory room, IT suite, library and 1960s themed hair salon make valuable contributions to day to day living. Meanwhile, our groundbreaking Memory Lane enables residents to step back in time, improving their psychological well-being through the proven benefits of reminiscence therapy. With “The Concorde”, our 60s themed pub, the “Revolver” record shop and McCarthy’s village store, residents are able to enjoy an attractive and stimulating destination that has drawn media coverage, care sector acclaim and imitations across the UK.

A settled, stable staff team

With minimal turnover of staff, few care homes can offer a staff team that’s as settled and unchanging as Olive Tree House. Reflecting the fulfilling and rewarding nature of working in such a uniquely well equipped and managed environment, this stability enables us to offer continuity of care and the immeasurable benefit of familiar, friendly
faces - enabling residents to build genuine personal relationships with carers who truly know and respect them as individuals.
