Healthcare

Residents either attend their own doctors' surgeries for medical care, or are visited at the home if they are unwell.

Our pharmacist pre-packages all medications for all of our clients.

We encourage families to take residents to hospital outpatient appointments, but if they are unavailable one of the staff members will accompany them.

Accommodation

We have 55 single rooms, and one double room. These areas each have their own living/dining area and bathrooms. We have a telephone for our residents' use, and most rooms have individual jack points for personal telephones if you wish.
