Description
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 will be cared for in a warm, safe and supportive environment ensuring care, comfort and companionship.

Please send my compliments to your new chef for the great changes she has made to residents' meals.

The food now tastes fresh and just like home cooking.
My husband is obviously enjoying it as he is much easier to feed and is now showing interest in what is on the spoon.

There is now a good variety of vegetables served in different ways and the desserts are great! I really like the fresh fruit salad and the apricot sponge.

The inclusion of fresh fruit and salads is appreciated.

Thank you
