A warm, homely environment
Our primary objective is to make our residents feel at home and continue life as independently as possible in a safe environment. We support our residents to lead a full and active lifestyle by encouraging them to make their own day to day decisions.
The majority of our bedrooms are single, with en-suite wet rooms. They are individually decorated offering a choice of colour schemes, décor and furniture ranges and prepared to a high standard. Each room has thermostatic radiators, smoke detectors and a 24-hour call system. To make their rooms feel as much like home as possible, we encourage residents to bring in their own belongings, such as pictures and ornaments. There are two lifts serving all levels of the home. All parts of the rear garden are fitted with hand rails and can be reached by wheel chair.
Part of the home’s interior is designed to accommodate for people living with dementia offering strong contrasting colour schemes, intimate sitting and activities areas, and sensory and tactical items on display.
