A home from home
The last thing you want is a care home that feels impersonal or clinical. Our interior design ethos is a home from home.

Every resident has their own private accommodation: calming, homely bedrooms, each with television and telephone points, variable lighting and vanity units. Some are adapted to provide hoists and other equipment to make life with a disability easier and more dignified. All feature nurse call points, tasteful décor and space for your loved ones to make it feel just like home with their personal belongings – even including appropriate items of furniture.

Designed for care
Many of our homes are purpose-built for care, and all have a phased refurbishment programme to ensure that individual living, communal and gardens are renewed and refreshed in line with new learning in care.

Each home has its own unique identity, but shares the family feel that we believe makes the world of difference to residents and staff. You will find space, light and comfort in abundance indoors, and secure landscaped gardens with seating and points of interest outside.

The exact configuration of facilities varies from home to home, but most elements remain constant. Restaurants serving a balanced diet of delicious food to be enjoyed in spacious dining rooms. Independent kitchenettes so residents can prepare their own snacks and meals if they wish. Communal sitting rooms – some designed as quiet rooms, others equipped with audiovisual entertainment systems and loop systems for the hard of hearing. Multi-faith quiet rooms, activity rooms and spaces where your loved ones can celebrate special occasions with friends and family.

Additional facilities include cinemas, rehabilitation gyms, therapy rooms, hairdressing salons and reminiscence rooms.

Yes, I have been made comfortable and the staff are all very nice. Some particular members of staff were very helpful and could not do enough for me. Thank you once again for getting me back on my feet.
