We have four large raised vegetable gardens and can grow our own tomatoes, and herbs in pots along with anything else our residents wish to grow. Gardening is free to anyone who chooses to partake. many of our residents love to prune the roses.

The style of the home makes for easy movement and integration of activities and our visitors and families are welcome to share lunch or a cup of tea at any time.

We have recently included the weekly services of a Pet Therapist who visits weekly with two lovely dogs and a very affectionate cat. Our residents have responded so well to this and it has enlightened their lives in many ways. We are hoping to increase her visits to twice weekly.
