Located in Rugby, Jim Gillespie House provides residential care for older people including those who may experience hearing or visual impairments, or need assistance with personal care and/or mobility, offering a homely, friendly and welcoming home for our residents.
We have 30 single rooms; 25 on the ground floor and five on the upper floor, 13 rooms have a toilet and wash hand basin and four rooms have full en-suite shower rooms. Each room comes with a bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers and soft furnishings but you are welcome to bring your own furniture to make it a real home from home.
As well as a place where we enjoy shared meal times, our communal dining room has a snack bar with light refreshments, which residents and their family and friends can enjoy when spending time with each other.
