History

Mr & Mrs Thompson have owned Cholwell House since 1992; Eileen Thompson had previously worked for many years in both local  authority and private nursing homes, caring for frail, elderly individuals.

Cholwell House is a private limited company and does not have a charitable status.

Fiona Trezise joined Cholwell home as Registered Manager in 2008. She is a registered general nurse with certification in oncological nursing and has extensive experience in palliative and dementia care. Additionally she holds the Registered Managers Award, is home co-ordinator for both the Gold Standards Framework in Care Homes and Dementia Care Matters Butterfly service, and a member of the End of Life Strategy Group for Bath & North East Somerset. Fiona combines administrative responsibilities with nursing duties in the home and will ensure the same method of  management is exercised at Argentum  Lodge.

Argentum Lodge opened in June 2013 and Alison Wingrove our Registered Manager joined us in 2014. It is a 56 bed home, where we offer skilled residential and nursing care, principally, for the person living with a dementia, celebrating their past and present life, and enabling them to re-claim dignity and self-respect in a safe and secure environment. A highly competent, sensitive nursing and ancillary team are trained to connect with the residents in meaningful communication, providing continuous 24 hour cover to deliver an enhanced standard of holistic care. 

Mr & Mrs Thompsons daughters are actively involved in the day to day running of the homes.
