Promoting and enabling independence
Our dedicated team provide services including one to one and group trips, crafts and activities, and specialist sessions tailored to each individual.
In addition, we have our own flexible and dedicated transport facilities. Appointments, family engagements, outings or shopping trips can be fulfilled when help is needed.
Make yourself at home by tailoring your fully equipped room to your own tastes
We understand the importance of having your own personal space to feel comfortable, relaxed and at home. Whilst all our rooms come fully furnished, they needn't look the same. Clean, neutral decor is provided as standard, but we are happy to personalise upon request, and encourage residents to bring any favourite decorations and items of furniture with them.
Residents are encouraged to enjoy time in our spacious garden, conservatory and patio.
