"Care You Can Trust"

Masonic Court is a not for profit care home, set in spacious award winning grounds.
We offer rest home and hospital level care to enable people to transit between care levels without needing to transfer to another facility.
Most rooms offer ensuite toilet facilities at no extra charge. Family and visitors are welcome and there are several day rooms available with complimentary tea and coffee to enable visits in a more homely environment.

Our menus are nutritional balanced and are reviewed a dietician every two years to ensure that we meet the needs of our older population. The meals are prepared on site.

A Day Activity Programme is also available at a modest cost - this will not run during pandemic conditions.
