This service provider has not received any reviews yet.

At Rosewood we believe it is our responsibility to provide the highest standard of care, to enable our residents to maintain a quality of life that is best suited to their individuality preserving independance and promoting self fulfilment.

Care is given in a holistic manner meeting the physical, social, emotional and spiritual needs of our residents.

At all times residents are treated in a sensitive, understanding and respectful manner promoting and maintaining dignity and privacy. Our focus on care is person-centred.

We recognise residents are part of a family outside the facility and will endeavour to inform and involve the family members at all times in a team caring approach.

Our residents are cared for in a warm, safe and supportive environment ensuring care, comfort and companionship.
