Coming soon to brighterkind
Carlton Mansions is one of a number of select residential care homes currently being transferred into the brighterkind care family.
Under this new direction, residents at Carlton Mansions will benefit from the highest standard of holistic care. To find out more about their philosophy and approach go to the brighterkind website.

You'll find Carlton Mansions in a residential suburb of Bristol. Here our team of dedicated carers, all with NVQ2 or NVQ3, provides high quality care around the clock. We offer residential care, palliative care, respite care, and care for people with dementia.
Our large Victorian property is close to the Downs and Bristol zoo, with shops and amenities nearby. We have a beautiful, peaceful, courtyard garden with water features and year-round planting. Squirrels play in the trees, and people living here love to spot and feed the birds. Inside, we have beautifully furnished lounges, and a large dining area where residents enjoy meals accompanied by soft background music. Our sunny conservatory is the perfect place for catching up with visitors. Individual bedrooms are comfortable and well maintained. They have en-suites, TVs, telephone points and great safety features. We love residents to personalise these spaces with their own furniture and colour schemes.
Life at Carlton Mansions
Our activities coordinator finds out the life history of each person living here, then plans a stimulating programme to match. This usually involves promoting that individual's existing interests, and encouraging them to take part in group goings-on, too. Options include painting, chair aerobics, breathing exercises, quizzes, resident poetry readings, trips out to places like Cheddar or Bristol Zoo, picnics at Chew Valley Lakes, visits to garden centres, and trips to stately homes.
There's also a quarterly newsletter for residents to read. We have a calendar of seasonal events, and most years the Lord Mayor of Bristol visits. A professional entertainer comes by, and residents also enjoy the visiting cinema which screens classic movies.
At least two evenings a week residents can have a wine or sherry. Catering at Carlton Mansions is high quality. Our chefs are trained to provide nutritionally balanced menus, and residents get a choice of three-course meals in the lounge or dining room. Each morning, breakfast is freshly cooked on request.
