We want you to enjoy your time here, and encourage you to talk over any ideas or concerns with our Clinical Manager or General Manager.
Our staff of registered nurses and qualified caregivers are all dedicated, caring people who have on-going training to meet the particular needs of all residents.
MAKING YOU AT HOME
We encourage residents to make their own decisions and to maintain their independence and self-care. Residents are welcome to personalise their rooms with pictures, photographs, their own private television and the mementoes they treasure.
Visitors are welcome. Our preferred visiting hours are between 8 am and 8pm. If a loved one is ill, provision can be made for relatives to sleep over. Family or friends are also welcome to take their loved ones for an outing.
