– Caring staff who are more like family
Residents wake when they choose, help themselves to a buffet breakfast or are waited on by staff. They can assist with chores, peel potatoes or watch the chef making pancakes to order in the open plan kitchens that are central to each household. We aim to allow residents to feel a part of their environment.
Each household has a kitchen, in which meals and drinks are prepared as needed. Residents can help prepare the food or simply sit on a stool and watch. These hubs are ideal places for coffees and conversations.
There is no reduction in the number of nursing staff and doctors will continue to visit for consultations in the doctor’s office on the premises, or in the resident’s room, but the aim is, as far as possible, to see that medical care does not unnecessarily out-weigh the resident’s social needs or limit what they wish to do.
We have no set visiting hours and are pet friendly. Residents can come and go as appropriate for their capacity.
