Description
"At Mitchell Court we know that people make the difference"

Our highly trained rest home staff are experienced in caring for
elderly people, and as a family-owned service, we look after our community and value each resident's individuality and independence.

Our spacious rooms offer you garden views, with options for larger studio units where couples can continue living together in a comfortable caring community.Our semi-secure premises also give peace of mind for secure care of those that may wander.

All meals and baking is cooked fresh on site daily. Our chef sources all ingredients from local suppliers where possible.

We welcome you to come and visit the Mitchell Court family and talk about how we can be your home away from home.
