About Us

Established for over thirty years, Royal Court is a privately run residential care home owned and managed by Mark and Claire Appleton

We are a small home with a friendly and open atmosphere providing long term residential, short term residential, respite and day care for older people.

Our residents have a range of needs, mostly those of frailty and mobility brought on by old age, memory problems, confusion and dementia.

The home is managed by Mark Appleton who is supported by his wife, Claire, in the day to day running of the home. We have a Deputy Manager, Kerry Piggott, who has over twenty years of experience in care and has worked at Royal Court for over nine years and who is supported by an experienced, loyal, local team of staff.

Making the decision to move in to residential care can be daunting and difficult and we are here to provide you with as much information as you need. Visits are welcome anytime and we are more than happy to welcome you or your relative/friend in for a cup of tea, a lunch or a free taster day for you to get to know us.

Dignity In Care

Royal Court we are committed to providing dignity in care. We have received a quality award from the NE Lincolnshire Council because of this. All of our staff have signed a statement to show their commitment to the dignity challenge which says we are a service which:

  1. Has a zero tolerance of all forms of abuse
  2. Supports people with the same respect you want for yourself or a member of your family
  3. Treats each person as an individual by offering a personalised service
  4. Enables people to maintain the maximum possible level of independence, choice and control
  5. Listens and supports people to express their needs and wants
  6. Respects people's right to privacy
  7. Ensures people feel able to complain without fear and retribution
  8. Engages with family members and carers as care partners
  9. Assists people to maintain confidence and a positive self esteem
  10. Acts to alleviate people's loneliness and isolation

We have two dignity champions at Royal Court : Ann Van Spall (relative), Jo Chew (staff)

Their role is to :

  • stand up and challenge disrespectful behaviour rather than just tolerate it
  • act as good role models by treating other people with respect, particularly those who are less able to stand up for themselves
  • speak up about Dignity to improve the way that services are organised and delivered
  • influence and inform colleagues
  • listen to and understand the views and experiences of residents
