Our care extends from the terminally ill to those requiring help purely due to old age. We are accredited with St Luke's Hospice to provide end of life care. 

We cater for residents requiring full time nursing care and many types of serious condition or disability including dementia, Parkinson's, Huntington's etc.

Our Nurses are on duty 24 hours a day and we have a local surgery where a doctor is always available to call. We have regular visits from our Dentist, Optician and Chiropractor plus an excellent local Hairdresser.

We have lifts to all floors, offer a full laundry service and keep a small stock of everyday items such as toiletries etc. You may have daily papers and magazines delivered to the home.

We pride ourselves on our excellent catering facilities, offering a wide choice of meals and snacks, visitor meals, special dietary requirements and assistance for those who need it.

Employing around 65 people primarily from the local area, we are extremely proud of the fact that so many of our employees are long standing, some serving up to 25 years. During those years, the homes have become their very own close knit communities resulting in many mutual friendships being formed amongst staff, residents and their families.

We care for our residents as if they were part of our own family and welcome adult visitors and children at any time. We offer the highest standards of nursing care based on individual care plans.
