Facilities & Services
Each lounge overlooks the gardens of the home and has been designed with a comfortable, traditional and relaxing feel in mind. The lounges provide residents with a spacious, light and airy room to enjoy whilst maintaining some home comforts.

Residents can enjoy spending time with family and friends, interact with other residents or get involved with the daily activities within the lounge areas. Each lounge also provides residents with an interactive reminiscence feature such as the old fashioned corner shop front or pub style bar. Call bell assistance is also available.
Directly accessed from each lounge the dining rooms provide residents with a homely and friendly environment to enjoy meals together with appropriate furniture to suit all resident’s needs.
Kitchen style facilities allow residents to support and assist staff at meal times which many residents find therapeutic in maintaining their independence, whilst the 1950’s style reminiscence kitchen pods also allow residents the opportunity to reminisce on their past family mealtimes.
