There is everything I need right here and the café makes it a little extra special for grandchildren to visit.

When Uncle was moving to Peacehaven from another facility I took my sister in law around the Home and looked at the cafe - the bowling table and all around the wide corridors and lounge areas. She was so amazed about the environment - the space and how nice it is right through. She didn't think it could be like this - it is so nice we have chosen our rooms! Maryann.
