Where are we?

 

Why choose Heathlands Village?

A Jewish Home

Heathlands Village is a Jewish home. If you wish to observe a Jewish religious and cultural way of life you will have everything you need here – Orthodox, traditional or secular – it’s your choice.

We understand that everyone is different. The important thing is to be able to live your life at Heathlands Village, as you did in your own home.

Going to shul

If you have always enjoyed going to shul (synagogue) it could not be any easier. A purpose-built, easily accessible shul in our main building holds services twice a day, every day of the week.

The shul is run by a small independent committee from the local Jewish community who along with others are regular attendees.

 

Eating kosher

We’re a ‘strictly kosher’ home. All food is prepared by our catering team in our own kitchens – one dairy, one meaty and one parev. This is conducted under the supervision of a ‘mashgiach’ (supervisor) from the Manchester Beth Din. We do not permit non-kosher food items to be brought into our home.

 

Shabbos and Yomim Tovim

Shabbos (Shabbat) and Yom Tov (Holy Days) bring a very special atmosphere to Heathlands Village. There are traditional celebratory foods and lots of extra visitors, including children and young people. A kiddush is held after Shabbos morning services which all residents are invited to attend.

We do not hold any formal residents’ activities on Shabbos or Yom Tov. The TVs in our communal areas are switched off and The Village Shop and The Central Café are closed. A Shabbos lift is in operation.

 

Activities

Our extensive residents’ activity programme offers a number of activities relating to the Yomim Tovim (chaggim) in the Jewish calendar for example: preparing mishloach manot at Purim; making Rosh Hashanah cards and holding a Residents’ Chanukah concert (by residents for residents).

Key times in the Jewish year attract a number of visitors from local schools, entertainment troupes and L’Chaim (Chabad Lubavitch Manchester). These further enhance our busy residents’ activity schedule.

 

Religious Director

The Fed employs a full-time Religious Director at Heathlands Village. They provide spiritual and religious support to residents and their families.

If you would like more information about the Jewish way of life in our home the Religious Director would be very happy to advise you.

Although Heathlands Village is a Jewish home we also welcome people of other faiths or those who have no religious affiliation.

The service in shul (synagogue) had a fantastic atmosphere – a really inclusive event with many generations taking part.

Ultra-modern facilities

Heathlands Village offers ultra-modern care facilities within a five-acre landscaped site. We have a generously sized patio, manicured gardens and two fantastic sensory gardens, with a seaside and woodland theme.

The heart of the village is our ‘communal hub’ – a lively, popular area in the main building. Here you will find: The Central Cafe and Sunny Lounge, Betty Blue hair salon and the residents’ activity centre. Near to the communal hub is the central atrium leading to our main restaurant,‘Balcombe Hall’, and our village shop. Round the corner is our medical suite and games room.

Our wonderful catering team ensure there are lots of nutritious, tasty choices on the menu everyday.

 

A wide range of care

We know that each individual needs a different type and level of care. Some people are relatively independent, whilst others may need help with every aspect of their care.

Offering a wide range of care at Heathlands Village is a very big plus. It means that even if your care needs increases, we will, most likely, be able to accommodate your needs.
