Care and Facilities

We understand that choosing a care home for your loved one can be a very difficult decision, especially if you are unsure of what type of care your loved one requires. Here at Friston House we will spend time with you to explain and answer any questions that you may have regarding our care facilities, and about the care that we deliver and provide. Friston House is a modern building that is regularly updated and refurbished providing facilities for residential dementia and nursing care for elderly frail and clients with dementia. Our reputation in the area is excellent, supported by the feedback that clients and families give to external forums. At Friston House our goal is to ensure that the residents that we care for and their families are happy within the right surroundings.
