Visiting Bentley House – Updated April 2021
Signature at Bentley House is very pleased to announce that we are now able to welcome visitors into our home.
In line with the new government guidelines we are pleased to offer a variety of safe and secure visiting options to our residents. Residents will be able to welcome one nominated visitor to our private and welcoming visiting suites or, if preferred to one of our dedicated outdoor visiting areas. We are working towards having six visiting appointments available per day.
We know how difficult these times have been and we’re delighted to say that residents and their visitors can hold hands during their time together.
After a long and unusual period for us all, we’re very pleased to make this announcement and look forward to having visitors back at Bentley House.
Please view our video for more details, or download our visiting guide document.
“Mum’s been here for a few months now, and I cannot speak highly enough of the care and attention she receives from the care staff, entertainments and staffing at meals. Speaking of meals, they are like going to a top restaurant. Mum has improved a lot since being here and that’s all due to everyone that works here. A very big thank you.”

Watch our new video, in which our resident, Sylvia, talks about some of the things that make Bentley House so special.
Bentley House Nursing Home Facilities
Our nursing home has a great range of facilities on-site for our residents to enjoy. There is a cinema, which is in constant use by residents and families and even by visiting grandchildren. We also have a spa and therapy suite, a hair salon, quiet lounges and a fully equipped library. With two outstanding restaurants, a bistro and a café, there is plenty of choice for formal or more casual dining.
Life is never dull at Bentley as we have a large activities team who provide trips out, visiting speakers, one to ones and activities which are chosen by the resident committee.
“A most pleasant experience. All the staff greeted me by my name, with a smile and no request was ignored. I was there for respite after an operation and was reasonably self-sufficient. I was truly amazed at the patience and care are given to the disabled residents in wheelchairs by all the staff. Activities varied and interesting. Keep fit-fun, cinema and a luxurious nightly change of films. Great!” (comment from carehome.co.uk, from a resident)
Dementia Care in Hertford
We also offer a separate dementia care area. This area has been designed in collaboration with research conducted by the University of Stirling and ensures that the environment is as dementia friendly as it could be. Comfortable, open plan naturally lit and staffed by our specially trained dementia nursing team, it offers unique support for those residents requiring specialist dementia care.
“All aspects of this home are very good. The staff in the dementia unit especially are very caring and pleasant. I am kept informed about my mothers care at all times. Very good liaison with local GP all in all very satisfied.” (comment from carehome.co.uk, son of a resident)
Signature at Bentley House is committed to providing the highest quality care and making our residents feel comfortable, supported, inspired and – most of all – happy. We would love to show you how we can help you or your loved one.
