Our home is very friendly, fun and optimistic; ensuring that every day is a special day that has value and purpose for everyone. We support people with the utmost dignity and respect and are committed to supporting people sensitively to maintain choice and independence.
Apart from the dedicated care team, the home has an activities coordinator whose role is to facilitate a wide range of activities and to ensure that individuals’ hobbies, skills and interests continue to be developed. Our team liaises with a range of healthcare professionals to ensure that each person is correctly supported to meet their full potential.
All six bedrooms are accessible for wheelchair users and are on the ground floor. On the first floor there is a meeting room, an office, laundry facilities and a bathroom.
