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, bar and lounge areas for socialising as well as enjoying quieter pursuits. Alford is regionally known for its craft markets held at the historic Alford Corn Exchange and feature the works of local artists and crafts people. During the summer months at Sandpiper, the home’s beautifully manicured gardens provide the ideal setting for residents to enjoy time with friends and family. 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.
