Pleasant family home. Fabulous meals. Good medical attention. We've been lucky with the timing of my wife coming into Voguehaven as we came in with the new owners and have been happy with everything.

Working in the industry, I was very particular about where my parents would end up, which is why my father is in Voguehaven.

Voguehaven is proud to offer a warm, family home with care provided by a wonderful team of very positive caregivers led by Wendy. A home that invites family, children & pets to be part of our every day. Our registered nurse and her family live down the road and her children are regular visitors with their own 'jobs' in the home. Between the kids and the pets and the cheerful staff, this encourages a fun, happy environment that feels like a normal family home - just a bit bigger and with up to 26 Grandmas and Grandads!
If any resident would like a patch of garden or simple chores, to help them feel useful, like they were in their own homes, we are happy to accommodate.
We make a point to celebrate all holidays big and small and have a cake for every resident's birthday. We pride ourselves on our Long Lunch for Art Deco Weeken. Our Mid Winter Christmas brightens up the dullest part of the year. Our Residents and Families Christmas parties are legendary, with live entertainment, a visit from Santa and a bouncy castle for the kids.
