Special Features
Kingswood Rest Home is a single storey residence.

It is important for people with dementia to be able to wander around the gardens and we encourage residents to tend a small vegetable garden.

Residents often help to rake the leaves and love to relax under one of the shade trees in our garden. We often have a BBQ and allow family and friends to join us in the garden for an afternoon or early summer evening tea.
