Cristiana answers your questions

What is important to the people living at your home?

  • The easy access to Wimbledon Common
  • Support with dementia
  • For some, their faith and ways to nurture this are facilitated by Alexander House staff.
  • The garden and summer house.  In the garden residents enjoy not just the flowers and trees, but also wildlife, as birds are encouraged to visit the garden by means of a bird feeder.

How is your home unique and different from other care homes in the area?

  • Alexander House is a Christian-run home where decisions taken on faith principles predominate.  It is part of a Christian charity.
  • The fabric of the building and the grounds are superior.
  • The home enjoys a unique, quiet location in London and is very close to Wimbledon Common.

What are some first impressions from visitors?  What do they say when they look round your home?

  • Relatives tell us that in their opinion the care is better at Alexander House than in some new purpose-built homes.
  • “Lovely home” –“smells nice” –“welcoming” – “clean”.

What are you looking for in recruiting people to work at your home?

  • Staff with the right motivation and attitude, with a caring nature and empathy for the residents
  • Good interaction with relatives and residents
  • Staff who enjoy what they are doing
  • Qualifications are obviously necessary but we would facilitate training for the right applicant.
