Types of care
We provide person-centred nursing care services for older people in need of support or for individuals living with a complex dementia. It is important to us that our care services are delivered in a way that celebrates each person’s individuality and helps them to maintain as much independence as possible, so we tailor our services to meet the unique individual needs of each person. This could include personal one-to-one time with staff members when needed, regular visits from a chiropodist or just adhering to special dietary requirements. Our current high rating on carehome.co.uk shows just how pleased residents and loved ones are with our care services.Read more
