Meet the Manager Mike James
Grandad has asked me to write to you on his behalf to express his gratitude for the care he has received, particularly over the last few weeks since we lost Nan. The support given by all of the staff at Sceats has been invaluable and has helped Grandad to cope during a very difficult time. Not only have you supported Grandad, you have helped us as a family. The welcoming atmosphere means Sceats is a home away from home for us all. Your staff are a real credit to you and we can’t thank you enough.
There are 30 rooms at Sceats, making it our largest-capacity care home.
Built in the 1930s, 1 Kenilworth Avenue was originally a residential family home, which was later augmented by and joined to 3 Kenilworth Avenue to form the current care home. In the 1960s Mr Caleb Sceats donated 3 Kenilworth Avenue to a local Christian group in memory of his wife, and the Sceats Memorial Housing Association was formed.
The home became part of Keychange in 2008, shortly after the completion of a new sun lounge, together with fully-upgraded plumbing and heating systems by the previous owners of the home.
The front garden has well-appointed flower beds, and there are 2 lawns at the rear, together with the home’s own greenhouse which supplies salad vegetables in season.
Sceats is situated on the outskirts of Gloucester city and is in a residential area. The parish church of St. Catharine’s is an easy 200 metre walk away.
