Stimulation for body and mind

Our dedicated Activities Leader gently encourages residents to carry on doing the things they enjoy.

Another aspect of helping our residents to feel at home is for them to do familiar things. If they had a hobby or pastime they did before they arrived, we’ll encourage them to continue it with us. Or perhaps they may like to learn something new. The important thing is that we treat every resident as an individual. If they enjoy sharing time with others, either in our home or on an organised trip out, they’re most welcome. Or, if they prefer quiet time alone, we’ll respect that too

Professional, practical and personal

Our team is made up of qualified naturally caring people who continue to build their skills with on-going training.

As well as providing excellent professional care, our entire team is dedicated to fostering a sense of home and of belonging. That means taking plenty of time to understand individual residents, their likes and dislikes, and exploring all the ways we can make them happy and comfortable. It’s all about giving our residents and their loved ones the confidence that we’re providing the very best of care, and delivering special resident experiences every day
