It is important to us that all residents feel they are living in a premium, home-like environment. We have designed our care suites to ensure colours, surfaces and architectural features emphasise ease of care and support dignity. Appliances which support resident safety and care, such as hoists, are designed to be discreet.

Our executive chef ensures residents requiring soft diets enjoy restaurant quality cuisine. We use innovative moulds to deliver nutritious meals with great tastes, textures and aromas.

Our care philosophy is to put all residents first with dedicated caregivers they can get to know and who will provide the essential human connections that come when people just take time to listen and to engage.

We have engaged with experts and invested in technology which supports care, communication and connections for our residents.

Using one simple tablet, with intuitive functions, residents can make phone calls to friends and family, including video calls, and speak to their caregivers, wherever they are on site. The tablet can be used to call up the menu from our restaurant quality kitchen to book a meal for the next day and it can be used to select and watch a movie or to play games to enjoy online hobbies.
