A large patio and summer house at the front of the home is used for many garden events during the summer.

Residents are encouraged to personalise their rooms, and all have features such as smoke detectors, thermostatic radiators and a 24 hour nurse call system.Meals are planned by our experienced chef manager, to offer a well balanced and nutritious menu with choice and variety.
