We have a mini bus and we have found one of the simplest joys is just going for a drive through familiar streets and villages and having an ice cream by the sea. Van outings are twice weekly and alternated between rest home and dementia units

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.

A mens shed is available on site for those who wish to tinker with an engine or sand some wood, the opportunities are only limited by your imagination

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.
