Our Care Home is often praised for its warm and friendly care staff and its positive atmosphere, we pride ourselves on being a home away from home. Every fortnight our Activity Coordinator organises excursions outside of the home which are thoroughly enjoyed by all, during the week our residents benefit from a range of activities, from tea party’s to musical celebrations.
