A real home from home


A real home from home


Personalised Living

We understand the trauma of giving up a much loved home, therefore, we encourage new residents to bring their treasured belongings with them. Everyone is welcome to personalise their bedrooms with their own small pieces of furniture and familiar items. We want our residents to make our home feel like their home too. 

A Real Home from Home

Residents enjoy the privacy of their own bedrooms, located over two floors with a lift. All rooms can be personalised, but as standard, they have a single bed, wardrobe, reading lamp and television. There is a telephone point to connect a privately funded phone line (optional) and an emergency call buttons for safety and peace of mind. En-suite bedrooms are available with a washroom and toilet. Others are equipped with a built in washstand with mirror. The home has six modern bathrooms, all of which have assisted baths.  There are also separate toilets located throughout the home. Staff call buttons and support rails are located in each facility for residents’ safety and convenience.

The House has three pleasant lounges with high backed, comfortable armchairs where residents can relax, socialise and enjoy television. The largest of these communal areas has an open plan layout with wide windows overlooking the pleasant garden area. This room is at the heart of the home; it has a piano and is the setting for our group activities and events. Mealtimes are enjoyed together in a choice of bright and welcoming dining rooms. To add a true domestic feel to the place, the home has kitchenettes on both floors where residents can get involved in kitchen activities and home baking.

Residents have access to the rear garden area, which is well maintained throughout the year. The garden has a greenhouse where residents with an interest in gardening can potter. There is also an attractive rose garden and raised rockery area with a commemorative water feature. Outdoor patio furniture provides an ideal setting for alfresco dining in summertime.

Unique Features

We affectionately named our bedroom corridors Rose, Lily, Bluebell, Poppy, Daffodil and Daisy. Each has an individual colour theme with a hand painted emblem of their namesake. To trigger memories and inspire storytelling, the home has memorabilia cabinets and feature walls from Hollywood’s Golden Age.

As a gift for the millennium, a kind supporter of the home, hand painted the glass of a large internal window producing a unique artwork, which adds a beautiful feature to the home.
