Privacy and independence, friendship and support - 24 hours a day

We offer care and comfort, compassion and friendship. At the heart of all we offer is our assurance that you will be treated with the respect and dignity that we all deserve, and if you need anything at all, we’re here to help, 24 hours a day.

Whether in the privacy of your own room or relaxing in the company of your friends and neighbours, we will support you to spend your time doing the things you enjoy. Let us know if it’s music, a favourite newspaper, exercise or a spot of pampering at the salon. Landscaped gardens invite you to appreciate the fresh air, or tend the plants, if you wish. There’s a wide range of social events, so you never need to feel bored or lonely.

We have the latest safety and security design features so you can live life to the full with peace of mind.

Your room

We encourage our residents to furnish their own rooms as they wish. This could be as simple as hanging a couple of their favourite pictures on the wall, but they’re also welcome to bring their own comfy chair, or anything that makes them feel at home. The most important thing is for everyone to feel comfortable, happy and settled.

All our bedrooms have an en suite toilet and sink.

Residential care

Finding a place that you can call "home" is a question of getting the right balance.

Our residential care provides 24 hour support to help you maintain independence –giving you peace of mind and a place to make new friends and explore new interests.

In many ways it is like living in a hotel, where you don’t need to worry about laundry, changing the bed or cleaning your room. We will use the district nurse and GPs to provide any medical care. Our caring staff help with everyday activities, as required, like bathing and dressing or support at meal times.

At the same time, there is no reason why you can’t maintain links with the local community, or develop new friendships and relationships. Care staff will help you do that, while also working hard to create a home that is itself full of opportunity and possibility.

In the main living areas of the home you will find lounges where you can join in one of the many activities with others or to sit quietly with a book or newspaper.

Food and drink

We offer a dining experience that enables you to maintain your independence and dine with dignity. Our staff support residents to make mealtime choices in a way that best suits them.

While residents can choose to dine in their own rooms, we encourage residents to eat together in the dining area so they can make the most of this valuable social time, we love it when relatives and friends join their loved ones for meals too.

If one to one support is required, a carer will sit with the resident to help them eat their meal at a comfortable pace.

You can enjoy treats from around the world on a weekly basis incorporating different culinary cultures ensuring that you enjoy a variety of food and drinks.

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.
