We have disabled our ‘feedback’ feature. We apologise for any inconvenience. Find out more here: I want to read reviews of rest homes


As individuals, our own home provides us with an environment that allows:

· Self identity
· A personal powerbase
· Privacy, security and a sense of belonging.

We strive to preserve these features through:

· Promoting - the individual and their health
· Emphasising – their capabilities
· Fostering – self-respect and self control
· Valuing – life long contributions
· Creating – opportunities for growth and fun

The management and staff are committed to new challenges that extend the boundaries of care.
