What We Do

Mission Statement

To know our residents as people with their own personalities and pasts and ensure that their quality of life is promoted to the highest possible level”


Our service is split over 3 floors with each unit providing different levels of care dependant on the residents assessed needs. Staff work throughout the care home so that if a resident needs to move to another unit as their condition deteriorates, they will still see the same friendly faces.

Training Room

We are lucky to have a large training room which can hold up to 20 people comfortably. The room is available for use by the community and for a small nominal charge refreshments can be provided. We are currently developing this area to become a community resource with information and signposting for help and support for individuals and their families with a diagnosis of dementia.
