Services We Offer
The home is staffed a professional Registered General Nurse at all times providing peace of mind for both patients and relatives. In addition, the nursing staff are fully supported by a team of Healthcare Assistants including three of a senior position. We are able to care for those residents needing long-term care, e.g. those with Parkinson’s Disease, those disabled following a stroke and the very elderly frailty and infirm, as well as those requiring intensive care for terminal illnesses.
Residents are given the option of keeping their existing doctor or transferring to a local surgery. The local surgery provides medical care for the residents reviewing each one every two weeks, or more frequently where the need arises.
The demands of the nursing home and its residents are managed by our Care Manager along with the help of our Senior Housekeeper and her team of Housekeepers and the Head Cook and her team of kitchen staff.
Diversional Therapy is provided by staff, in particular our Activities and Events Coordinator and through the booking of visiting entertainers, who encourage the more able to enjoy some of the older, well remembered songs. Whenever possible the able residents enjoy a day out shopping or visiting local entertainment amenities. Relatives are more than welcome to attend.

A hairdresser also visits the home on a weekly basis to assist to residents needs. The hairdresser uses an on site hair salon.
