There’s a wide range of social events, so you never need to feel bored or lonely.

Nursing care

24-hour nursing care, tailored for individual needs. We provide round the clock specialist nursing care for those with medical needs, whether that’s a long-term illness or disability. Medical and other forms of specialist support are delivered with friendly expertise by our highly skilled team of nursing professionals.

As you’d expect from our wonderfully compassionate team, nursing care is wholly person-centred to meet the requirements of each individual with respect and dignity at all times.

Food and Drink

All the food we offer you is freshly prepared by our staff that is well trained to provide for any special diets or needs you may have. Three meals a day, breakfast, lunch and tea are served in the main dining room, but if you prefer to eat in your room this can also be accommodated.

Drinking enough fluids is very important for physical and mental health to help you stay alert, stable and able to take part in all the activities on offer, so we encourage drinks throughout the day.

The chef meets with the residents on a regular basis to ask for their views on the food and drink service. Morning and afternoon tea, coffee, biscuits and cake are served every day. Further drinks and light snacks are also available from the snack menus.

Our commitment to your well-being

Our highly-trained, dedicated members of staff will always be on hand to provide your care and support in the way that best suits you, in the comfort of your own room with en suite facilities.

We choose the people who work with us very carefully. They need to share our values and respect people, their life experience and personal choices.

We take pride in the cleanliness and maintenance of your home and provide a thorough and friendly cleaning service. Your personal washing will be carefully laundered and returned to you, clean and fresh.
