Special Features
Summerville rest Home is a small 15 bed, homely, family orientated rest home where everyone’s individual needs are catered for.

The home is well maintained and fits in neatly with the other houses in the neighbourhood. Summerville is thoughtfully laid out so that residents can observe the comings and goings in the street if they wish from the comfort of the front lounge or if they prefer they can move to another lounge set towards the rear of the building. The exterior of the home is painted in warm colours. The main lounge has an extended tiled courtyard area opening out from the French doors onto an attractively landscaped garden. The interior of the home is decorated in soft colours that is attractive. This gives the home a serene and graceful yet home-like appearance.

We have an open door policy to Family and Friends visiting.
