Situated in Northwood, our home is an excellent location with good transport links. We’re a five minute walk from the underground station, have good bus links, and we’re also a five minute walk away from the town.
We’re not like typical care homes, as our house was not purpose built, but a family home that has been converted. This helps to create our homely feel along with our friendly, dedicated and professional team who are committed to creating a warm, safe and secure environment, where we respect residents rights of choice, dignity and respect at a high level at all times.
Our home is small with twelve rooms, five of which are en-suite, creating a family, home from home feel and is still full of its beautiful original characteristics and features.
