Since 1985, we have been developing our special understanding of the needs of our residents. We pride ourselves on offering support and friendship whether it be for long term care, convalescence or holiday stays.When people have worked hard thoughout their life and have been committed to helping others, we think they deserve extra cherishing. They need a home where individuality is emphasised, with staff who have the time to give their full attention to the smallest of details, and where they have the choice of enjoying the company of like-minded fellow residents.

Contact with Friends and Family

Family, relatives and friends of residents are encouraged to visit regularly and maintain contact by letter or telephone when visiting is not possible. In these cases, staff will offer to assist the resident to respond where help may be needed.

Visitors will be welcomed at all reasonable times, and are asked to let the person in charge know of their arrival and departure from the home for security and fire safety reasons.

The resident has the right to refuse to see any visitor, and this right will be respected and up-held by the person in charge who will, if necessary, inform the visitors of the residents wishes.
