Specialists in dementia care
At Danecroft in Wilstead, we provide residential care for the elderly, including those with dementia. With support from district nurses, we are also able to look after residents with more complex needs – which may allow them to stay with us rather than a nursing home.
Our outstanding care home Danecroft in Wilstead provides compassionate residential care for the elderly, including those living with dementia. With support from district nurses, we are also able to look after residents with more complex needs – which may allow them to stay with us rather than a nursing home.
Like Elcombe House, the care we offer is person-centred., which means we treat every resident as an individual, and we do our utmost to accommodate their personal requirements. We are passionate about creating a homely, inclusive and happy atmosphere for our residents, so you won’t find our staff wearing uniform because we believe that everyone here is equal – we’re all part of one very large extended family.
Danecroft is set in a converted 1930s bungalow and has 34 bedrooms, some with en-suite. It comes with a newly extended lounge which overlooks a newly landscaped garden and two further cosy lounges. It also has a dining room that overlooks a courtyard garden, three bathrooms and a kitchenette that’s always open for residents and visitors.
Our home is nestled in the Wixams community, where a local shop, garden centre and village hall are within walking distance, along with lakes for scenic walks. It’s a place where residents can enjoy a real sense of belonging thanks to visits from the local school children and seasonal community events.
As Danecroft has a mix of residents with differing needs, we want to ensure that your family member is in the right place. We’ll assess their requirements and help you decide whether they’ll be happiest here or more suited to our other outstanding Bedfordshire care home

‘The service used innovative ways to encourage staff to have lively and interesting conversations with people. There was a ‘conversation tree’ in the sitting area, with topic cards to prompt people and staff to have something to talk about.’
