Our Residents

Our residents are at the heart of everything we do at the home and we recognise that each resident has individual experiences, needs and aspirations and strive to help them achieve their goals and live a comfortable and fulfilling life during their stay with us.

We aim to give our residents opportunities to participate in all aspects of daily life at the home with a varied activity program and consult them regularly on how the home is run at our residents’ meetings.
