Our Vision & Ethos

Our vision is to meet and exceed the needs of our clients and achieve excellence into the future.
We aim to be a resident centred provider at all times, promoting individual based approach to care. 
We encourage as much independence for each guest and provide a supportive and caring environment where each person feels secure and valued, ensuring they are treated in a dignified manner at all times.


A varied range of recreational activities and social functions are provided in the centre which cater for all tastes, some of which are newspaper discussions, arts and crafts, bingo, cards, singing & games to name but a few. 
There are a range of complimentary therapies and professional services available to all our residents several times a week. Our activities co-ordinator in conjunction with our residents committee organise events throughout the year to celebrate special occasions. 
Arrangements are in place for so that each resident can continue to practise/attend their own religious services.  Priests and Pastors visit regularly.  Mass is celebrated in our Oratory twice weekly and communion is administered several times a week. Prayers are celebrated daily.  There is an Oratory (prayer room) in the nursing home where residents can spend time in prayer and reflection.


All food is freshly prepared in our kitchen by a team of qualified cooks who prepare a varied, nutritious and highly palate menu catering for all tastes. All special diets are cared for and each resident has their own personalised food plan, which is revised regularly. 
We provide home baking, drinks and snacks to our residents throughout the day.
