About the home

Our aim is to make your transition in to our home, as smooth as possible. All of our residents benefit from a tailored support plan, so you can be sure you will get the right level of care for your needs. Whether you choose to stay with us for respite, short-term care, or plan to stay with us for longer, your needs will be fully assessed and a care plan agreed.

For your leisure time, our social programmes are developed in conjunction with residents, so you can continue to do the things you enjoy. When it comes to meal times, our chefs are able to adapt our delicious menus to fit in with any individual requirements you may have.
