About Edward House
Edward House is situated in the heart of Eastwood, less than ten miles from both the centre of Nottingham and Derby. It offers residents the highest standard of care in a fine Edwardian house that has managed to retain many of its original features, whilst being sympathetically converted and modernised to provide excellent quality residential accommodation.
A lovely atmosphere
Our aim at Edward House is to provide a relaxed family atmosphere that everyone can enjoy. We have been caring for the elderly and retired members of our community since 1994 and in that period of time have developed close friendships with our residents and their families. We want everyone to be included in life at Edward House and we actively encourage family members to visit and take an active part in the ongoing care of their loved one and the and social activities of the home.
Our recently extended home is now able to offer fourty bedrooms, ten of which are brand new ensuite rooms. All our bedrooms are individually and tastefully decorated for residents to make their own. We encourage everyone to bring their own treasured possessions, or personal items of furniture with them so that they feel they are truly in their own home from home.
The house contains some fine original features throughout its communal areas, which include a beautiful entrance hall, three lounges, and a large dining room. Whether residents enjoy having a chat, reading, or perhaps just sitting quietly there is always somewhere in the home for them to enjoy.
We have Alexa’s throughout the lounges and WhatsApp is available. There is a smart TV in the main lounge, a karaoke for sing-alongs with staff, and we also have a friendly parrot that sings and dances. There is also a fish tank that residents find very therapeutic.
Our courtyard gardens to the front of the home have been beautifully planted and make a lovely area for residents to sit out in during warmer weather, and in summer we like to hold open air tea parties so that everyone can enjoy the outdoors.
Leading a fulfilling life
At Edward House we encourage all our residents to stay as active as possible. In conjunction with them we plan a wide range of activities, with something to suit everyone’s taste be it a game of cards, puzzles, some gentle exercise or good old-fashioned entertainment.
For those more active residents who like to get out and about Edward House is perfectly placed in the middle of a busy and bustling community. We are situated opposite one of the main bus routes into Nottingham, where, after a 30 minute bus ride you can shop in excellent shopping centres, go to the theatre or see the sights of Nottingham.
