Residential Care

Residential care is a good option for someone who is struggling to live by themselves. Many older people prefer to live in a residential care facility because it offers them security, social engagement, and ongoing support on a daily basis. Residents can live a full life at our residence while avoiding the stresses of maintaining a household.

Residential care aims to improve a resident’s physical, mental and emotional well-being. We believe in offering more than just basic care for our residents as we want them to thrive in a loving environment that promotes both physical and mental stimulation. Our mission is to provide all residents with the best possible quality of life.

Nursing Care

Our home offers nursing care for residents who require continual medical care and personal care. This type of care is the most suitable option for individuals who have physical or mental disabilities, those with high dependency needs, as well are long-term health conditions or illnesses.

Residents who reside at our nursing home receive a high standard of care at all hours of the day and night from our experienced nursing team. Our staff are dedicated to providing residents with a comfortable stay where they are most importantly happy, as well as have the opportunity to carry out their interests with support from our team.

Dementia Care

We have many years of experience working with people who have lived with dementia and the many symptoms that stem from the condition. We are able to give unrivalled, high-quality care to our residents no matter the level of support they require. Just like with our other types of care, there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach to dementia care, which is why our dementia care programmes are solely tailored to each individual circumstance.

We are pleased to be able to provide a range of dementia-friendly activities, alongside person-centred care and support that allows those living with dementia to excel in an environment that supports their needs, while they can continue to experience a lifestyle that suits them.
