Capella House is committed to providing a home-like environment that delivers quality person centered care, dignity and respect for the people living here.

We provide 24 hour nursing care for secure dementia, rest home and hospital level care and are committed to providing excellent care for all of our residents.

Our building consists of three separate care units.
Our dementia unit is split into two smaller areas- a male only unit as well a mixed male-female unit.
Our separate private hospital wing has recently been extended/renovated (July 2020).

All of our staff are highly experienced and qualified and we are extremely proud of the care we deliver.

From Suzi: Dear Rena, I don't know where to begin... we cannot thank you enough for the love and care of Jimmy received at Capella House. I would like to mention all the names of the nurses, carers and cooks who showed him kindness and respect- but I'm afraid i might miss someone out. You have the most amazing staff- who became more than that over the time Jimmy was with you. The smiles, pats on the arm, words of encouragement or empathy, the dignity with which he was treated and the sadness of the staff - all went to show that it was more than a job that they do. Your words of kindness and support went a long way to comfort us as well. Please pass onto EVERYONE huge thank-yous and hugs. What amazing people you all are. We will forever be in your debt. Big hugs and love, Suzi and the family.
