A chiropodist, hairdresser and an aromatherapist regularly visit Bancroft Gardens. However, these are extra facilities and will be charged as such. A local optician visits to carry out eye and hearing tests for residents who are unable to visit an optician of their own choice.

On the first Sunday in the month members of the Baptist Church come into the home and hold a short service, and Clergy and members of the Anglican, Roman Catholic and Methodist Churches come in to give Communion and visit residents regularly.  Arrangements can also be made for residents of other faiths.
