Residential and dementia care

“I have worked here for over 20 years and intend to retire here.”

“This is just an extension of my family.”

“We see each person as an individual with individual needs and likes and dislikes – which is the beauty of managing a smaller home as it can be done!”
Jayne Wardell

“I never thought I could leave my own home and be happy.”

“I love my room and I love my friends.”

“The staff are so accommodating.”

“I knew when mum didn’t want to come to us on Christmas day she loves it here and thinks of it as her home.”
