Outdoor Areas

Our Porterbrook residents have access to an array of outdoor spaces from the courtyard garden, balcony, and terrace where they can stretch their legs, get some fresh air, and enjoy the passing wildflife.

Whether our residents want to spend some time alone reading a book outside or wish to relax on a seat with a loved one, our home has ideal spots for those who enjoy being outside.

Outside Activities

We try to offer as many opportunities outside as possible while the weather permits so that our residents can enjoy the sunshine. We encourage our residents to take part in gardening activities as it provides many health benefits, and we often host games outside which always goes down well with our residents.

Ever Growing Facilities

We enjoy regularly hosting events for our residents, and it’s vital to us that we provide a diverse range of amenities so that they may get the most out of their stay with us. When residents come to The Porterbook, we pay close attention to their hobbies and interests so that we can incorporate them into our programme in order for residents to live an appropriate lifestyle. From our cosy cinema to our fun-filled arts & crafts, we strive to ensure that there is something available for all preferences.

Catch Up With Loved Ones

It’s always nice to get outside, even if it’s just a few feet from our home. We have outside seating in the front and back of the house so that residents can sit outside and have a natter with loved ones during warmer months, while taking in the pleasant view. Our outside balcony also features tables and chairs so residents can sit with a cup of tea (and a few biscuits) while reading a book or newspaper in a peaceful environment.

Features of our Outdoor Areas

We are so pleased to be able to provide such a wide range of facilities at The Porterbrook Care Home, and our residents are welcome to make use of them as many times as they’d like.


There’s nothing better than soaking up the sunshine on our balcony while enjoying the view as a way to unwind. Our balcony is a popular place for residents to visit all year round. Often we host afternoon tea, drinks and dinner during special occasions.

Outdoor Seating

Residents can spend more time outside than ever before. Our terrace has views over the local area and the courtyard has tables and chairs, so there are plenty of opportunities to watch the birdtables in action and to admire the flowers.

Al Fresco Dining

When the weather allows, our courtyard and balconies make the perfect setting for dining outside. Residents can enjoy the warm evening air and wildlife views whilst sharing a meal with their fellow residents or loved ones.

You Matter to us at The Porterbrook

Our home was created with the intention of meeting each resident’s needs and preferences, as well as the freedom to make their own choices and live their lives exactly the way they wish to. Our staff continues to build strong bonds with our residents and their families, which we believe significantly helps to achieve our person-centred approach to care. Our modern amenities enable us to create a home-away-from-home experience, and meet our goal of providing an active and stimulating lifestyle for our residents every day.
