Frequently Asked Questions

Is Compton View part of a chain of homes?

Compton View is an independent care home and not part of any chain. It is family owned by a husband and wife team. Jacky and Paul Edwards are working together and raising their baby Caspian there.

Is the food freshly prepared on the premises?

Our dedicated cooks prepare fresh food on a daily basis and there is a varied menu. They bake their own cakes, quiches and pies and cater for requests, especially when asked nicely. Nothing is too much trouble for them.

What type of activities are on offer at Compton View?

We have a full activity programme which provides activities for our residents throughout the week. We offer weekly Bingo sessions, quizzes, games and sing-a-longs as well as exercise classes and yoga. We organise outings to local pubs and tea-rooms, as well as bringing the party to us with karaoke evenings, pantomimes, and old-time swing bands. We like our residents to tell us what they want to do, then it’s up to us to organise it.

How do I know that my mother or father will be safe from any form of abuse whilst in your care?

All of our staff are fully trained in relation to safeguarding of vulnerable adults. This training is refreshed on an annual basis. At Compton View there is a culture of openness and staff are aware that they are fully protected by the whistleblowing policy and would be confident about reporting any concerns. We feel it is an honour to care for our elders and we care for them as if they were our own.
