Our residential care home is dedicated to ensuring dignity, independence and choice for the people it supports irrespective of physical or mental health. We want to offer people the best possible quality of life in terms of medical support, physical surrounding, meaningful activities and hospitality, too.

People living with dementia are supported in our dedicated Memory Lane Community, which has been specially adapted to their needs by the use of careful design and use of colours.
