The care we provide

Residential Care

If you are finding aspects of day-to-day life at home difficult, we offer residential care which allows you to be independent for longer within the comfort of a home environment. We tailor our care plans to suit you, or your loved one; offering as much or as little care as needed.

Nursing Care

We provide qualified nurses on-hand 24 hours a day to plan and deliver the very best nursing care and specialist support to you, or your loved one. Our nurses are fully supported by a team of care assistants to ensure personal care is delivered accordingly to every person’s individual care plan and needs.

Dementia Care

Our care home was purpose built to be dementia friendly from the layout of the building, to sensitive décor and interior design to provide a familiar and safe environment. We get to know each resident, to create a care plan as individual as they are.

Palliative Care

We are here to support you, or your loved one. We listen to your wishes and preferences and take these into account when creating a care, or end of life plan. We can help manage pain and other afflicting symptoms to ensure you, or your loved one are always cared for with respect and dignity.

Respite Care

We offer short-term care for when you need it most. Whether it be for a short break or to aid recovery following an operation, or from being unwell we can provide personalised care for a few weeks while you recover.
