At The Chantry, we provide the care people need to optimise their health and wellbeing, maximise their independence and support their emotional and social needs.
What we do
We provide specialist neurological care, rehabilitation and support tailored to the individual needs of people with a range of neurological conditions.
Who we are here for
We are here for people with conditions that get worse over time – such as Huntington’s disease, motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease – as well as those with conditions resulting from a brain or spinal injury or stroke.
We offer a huge range of support, from long-term residential care in one of our specialist neurological care centres, to supporting people to live independently in their own homes.
Our expert care team includes nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and healthcare assistants. We can help with everything from easing physical symptoms to coming to terms with feelings.
By focusing on health, wellbeing and what each person can do, not what they can’t, we support people to live their lives as fully as possible.
Frequently asked questions
Who are your services for?
Our residential and day services are here for people with conditions that affect the brain and nervous system. These can be degenerative conditions that get worse over time – such as motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s – as well as those with acquired conditions resulting from a brain or spinal injury or stroke.
How much will care cost at The Chantry and what funding is available?
The cost of care is dependent on an individual assessment.
Where individuals are not eligible for continuing healthcare funding, the majority of other people needing our care are joint funded by the local authority and CCG (Clinical Commissioning Group). We also accept private self-funding individuals.
Can I personalise my own room?
We encourage all of our residents to personalise their rooms.
You are welcome to bring in items of furniture, furnishings and equipment as long as it can be accompanied within your room, and meets health and safety requirements.
