Help & advice

Finding the ideal care home is a daunting task but seeking help and advice can make the process easier and help you to make the best decision possible for yourself or a loved one.

Our care home managers meet people who are looking for care everyday and understand what a difficult time it can be for the whole family. They are always happy to talk to anyone considering different care options and to answer any questions you may have about life at the home, care packages and care in general.

Nutrition for older people

As we get older, eating healthily is vitally important. It helps us to stay in good shape physically and mentally, and provides a defence against infections.

Having a balanced diet that provides all the nutrients the body needs is of paramount importance at every stage of life.  However, our relationship with food can change along with the ageing process. Sometimes older people develop problems maintaining the eating habits associated with a healthy lifestyle.
