Care type

  • We provide accommodation, meals and 24-hour personal care for those who find it increasingly difficult to cope at home without assistance.

    Each of our care homes has their own individual style and range of facilities designed to give you security, independence and the very best in residential care.

    Our person-centred approach means you will be respected as an individual and treated with dignity. When you arrive we will create a personal care plan tailoring our care based on your individual needs.

  • We offer 24-hour personal support to those with a condition that requires frequent specialised nursing care.

    All of our nursing care homes provide:

    • qualified registered nurses
    • 24-hour expert nursing care
    • well presented, comfortable accommodation
    • long and short-term nursing care options
    • nursing care for residents with funding from their local authority, private funding and NHS care
  • As  a leading provider of dementia care, we combine experience and expertise to offer you support and peace of mind.

    We treat all of our residents as individuals and tailor our care around their needs. With the help of family and loved ones, we are able to get to know our residents, creating a picture of their life and ensuring we base our care around their likes, dislikes and habits.

    We provide two types of dementia care:

    • Residential dementia
      24-hour personalised care and assistance provided for those living with dementia, in a safe and comfortable environment
    • Dementia nursing
      In addition to person centred care, we provide nursing staff to support residents who require qualified nursing care.
  • Caring for a loved one can be rewarding, but time off for both of you is essential. Short care breaks, also known as respite, allow carers the time to recharge their batteries while offering their loved ones the reassurance of 24-hour care.

    We provide round the clock care in a safe, comfortable environment, whether it’s just for a few days or up to six weeks. You may consider a short stay care if:

    • you’re planning a holiday and require care cover for your loved one while you’re away
    • you fall ill and need additional support
    • you’re considering moving your loved one to a care home and they would like a trial visit
  • Our day care is for those who need some social interaction or are recovering from surgery or a debilitating illness and their main carer is unavailable during the day.

    This is sometimes known as convalescence care, and we provide 24-hour nursing care to recuperate your body through a combination of rest, appropriate exercise and a balanced diet.

  • End of life care – also known as palliative care – is the care of people with an illness where recovery is not expected.

    We understand how difficult and emotional these situations are, which is why we provide respectful pro-active care for residents and relatives in their last days of life, ensuring their physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs are considered and met.

    In particular, we focus on:

    • relief from suffering by managing physical symptoms such as pain, sickness, tiredness or loss of appetite
    • psychological care and emotional support to cope with the complex feelings experienced around death and bereavement
    • spiritual care addressing spiritual or religious needs of our residents and their families
    • understanding resident’s wishes in advance should their health start to deteriorate
  • Many of our care homes provide specialist care and support for those with Huntington’s. We provide comfortable accommodation, 24-hour personal care and daily activities to help stimulate body and mind.

    Our carers are trained to deliver the highest standards of care for the complex symptoms experienced by residents with Huntington’s, including support and understanding for the families affected.

  • Our specialist care homes are designed to care for residents with Parkinson’s.

    From dietary requirements to planned drug administration, we provide expert personal care 24-hours a day in comfortable, homely accommodation, tailoring our care to the required personal needs.

  • A selection of our care homes are registered to care for people aged 18 to 65 who have physical disabilities and are unable to look after themselves in their own homes. Our specialist facilities, equipment and highly skilled staff can care for a wide range of disabilities and needs.

    Caring for young physically disabled people means helping to create an atmosphere that encourages social interaction in a warm, homely environment. We encourage independence and make sure everyone receives regular physiotherapy, whether it is to help retain movement or simply make sure our residents are comfortable.

  • We provide specialist care to stimulate and engage adult residents with reduced ability to understand and cope independently. We aim to give them a safe, comfortable and near independent life by providing nursing care when they need it.
