Sandpiper is located on South Street in the idyllic market town of Alford, and is the smallest care home in the Tanglewood Group. Alford is in close proximity to the picturesque Lincolnshire Wolds, and boasts good roadway connections to the popular resort towns of Sutton-on-Sea, Mablethorpe and Skegness. A team of 50 staff at Sandpiper know our residents on an individual level, and provide an exceptional level of person-centred care for all, whether with us for residential care or requirements for dementia care.
Sandpiper is registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and provides Residential Care and Dementia Care.
This purpose-built home has been beautifully maintained since it opened in 1991, and recently underwent a refurbishment project in 2018. Spacious and bright bedrooms are decorated to the highest standard offering the comforts of a true home away from home. Residents are encouraged to personalize their own space, and maintenance staff are always on hand to place that cherished family photo.
The home offers a hair salon, tavern and a variety of lounges which are designed to suit people who enjoy socialising and participating in our exciting activities program as well as those who enjoy quieter activities. Sandpiper forms part of an intimate local community. Alford is regionally known for regular craft markets held at the historic Alford Corn Exchange, which feature the works of many local artisans and craftsworkers. During the summer months at Sandpiper, the Home’s delightfully manicured grounds provide the ideal setting to enjoy time with friends and loved ones. In keeping with the Tanglewood philosophy guests are welcome any time; there are no set visiting hours.
My husband has been in Sandpiper for 3 years – its like home from home. Its most welcoming and the care is excellent.
