Our dedicated staff and volunteers work hard to maintain high standards of accommodation, companionship and support.

Our kind and caring staff all love working with older people, and provide high quality care, while fully maintaining the dignity and independence of our residents.

Fees include all care, cleaning, laundering and meals. A private hairdresser, charged to the resident, attends on a regular basis. Appointments with chiropodists, opticians and hearing specialists can be arranged at the home.
