Inside the main facility we house our frail care residents, focusing on their individuals needs whilst still maintaining quality of life.
Each of our care and accommodation options are housed in separate areas of the property, allowing us to prioritise the service and level of care needed at each of these facilities. Interactions between residents are encouraged, forming a community throughout the home with many flourishing friendships forming.
