Our accommodation offers all the facilities to ensure comfort and care. All rooms are single, although a number of rooms are large enough to accommodate married couples or others wishing to share. Larger bedrooms have full en-suite facilities.
There are two dedicated smoking rooms. Smoking is not permitted in bedrooms or any other part of the home.
T.V. points are fitted in all bedrooms and a lift provides easy access to upstairs toilets, bathrooms and bedrooms. Call systems are fitted in all bedrooms, toilets, bathrooms, dining rooms and lounges.
There are three lounges for residents to choose from and enjoy either T.V., music, hobbies or just a quiet place to sit.
We have installed a brand new sensory room, fully equipped with Alexa. The lighting changes to help influence a positive mood. Alexa also reads stories and plays calming meditation for those who wish for some relaxation.
We aim to make every stay as homely and comfortable as possible.
