Plessington Court is a purpose built Care Home “Household” which opened its doors in 2005. Our Home is modern bright, comfortable and enjoyed by our family- those who call Plessington Court their “home”. We have a simple ethos of care “How would I like to live well with dementia?” When we ask ourselves this question the answers is …that we would all want to live in a safe, comfortable environment where we were included and felt in control of our lives. In addition we offer so much more in terms of nurturing a warm, inclusive, fun household that responds to its family’s individual needs. Our team are like your best friend visiting your home they light up the moments to make every day special. The home is full of opportunities, we bring the outside world in. Our family members could feel that their world is shrinking due to changing health, role, accommodation and routines, but this is not the case.
We ensure that we promote wellbeing by understanding each individual’s life story, their health needs and their emotional responses and we plan our household events accordingly. If you are looking for a new household for your relative due to memory loss, we would like to invite you to visit our home, you’re more than welcome to visit anytime, however a full viewing may not always be possible; as we prioritise our family needs and individuals dignity above business promotion; just as you sensor visitors in your own home.

Plessington Court was named after St. John Plessington who has historical connections with Puddington. He became a tutor at Puddington Hall until his arrest and martyrdom by hanging at Barrowshill, Boughton, near Chester. There is a monument to him only a short distance from the Moore family’s first care home in Boughton subsequently, when friends heard they were moving to Puddington they gave the Moore family a small card about John Plessington & special prayer to wish them well in their new home The Chapel House back in 1986; They still have the card today and this is why we named our new home Plessington Court.
