Life at John Wills House care home

We are dedicated to welcoming everyone into the family setting of John Wills House care home in Bristol. Creating a comfortable, fulfilling and enjoyable environment is an important part of the care and support we give. Filling your days with fun and enjoyment is central to life at John Wills House. Activity programmes are carefully tailored with resident’s hobbies and interests in mind, but there is always an opportunity to try something different.

Areas to relax, both indoors and outside

There are quiet areas within John Wills House for those times when you just want to relax with the newspaper or a good book. When the weather allows, residents are welcome to sit in the gardens, enjoy outdoor activities or watch the local cricket team, whose pitch is central to the wider Westbury Fields site.

Spacious and private accommodation

When you retire to the comfort of your own private room, you will enjoy spacious accommodation with en-suite facilities. Your room is your own space, so please feel free to bring in personal items to make it really feel like home. Treasured family photographs, paintings and ornaments all help to make your space your own.

Social activities

All residents are encouraged to socialise, join in activities and fill their days with smiles and laughter. Resident lounges are focal points for the activities or the place to go for a chat over a cup of coffee and piece of cake. Visitors are welcome at any time and many enjoy taking part in the social events and activities.

Wide range of activities

A wide range of activities are available to stimulate your mind, body and spirit. Get creative in an art class, enjoy dancing or take your seat and be entertained by a wide variety of visiting musicians, groups and singers. Other activities available include gardening, cookery, film screenings, games and exercise classes. Regular excursions are also offered to local attractions, places of interest or just to enjoy a day’s shopping.

Top quality chefs

Dining is a social occasion when residents can come together to enjoy a wide selection of freshly produced, great tasting meals. Different food options are available at each meal and all dietary requirements can be catered for. Residents wishing to share a meal with guests are welcome to dine within the care home or they can use Westbury Field’s on-site licensed restaurant – The Cricketers – which is next door to John Wills House.

Let’s try something new together

It’s important for activities to be fulfilling and purposeful so residents in an art class may be creating artwork or decorations for celebrations in the lounges; whilst others may be baking cakes for a charity sale or the village fete held on the cricket pitch adjacent to John Wills House. There’s always something going on at John Wills House, but if there’s a particular activity you have in mind or if you want to try something new just let us know.
