Monday to Friday, 9am – 5pm

Our values underpin our entire approach:

  • We nurture mind, body and spirit
  • We inspire the best in each other
  • We respect every person, treating them with dignity.

Putting our values into practice

We put people at the heart of everything we do, treating people as individuals, respecting and honouring their wishes and providing care in a way that’s best suited to each person’s specific needs, enabling them to live later life well.

We place great importance on nurturing the mind, body and spirit of those we care for, their families and our colleagues regardless of faith, background or belief.

It is important that all our colleagues, volunteers and those we care for understand and share our values in order to play their part in building a community that enables people to live later life well.
