We think people should get enjoyment and a feeling of purpose as much as possible in life and for that reason we have appointed a Well Being Coordinator. She arranges all sorts of activities in the home from guest speakers to lively entertainment to individual sessions.

We have a very good catering team led by a Catering Manager. We believe that food and drink is important, we all know that eating and drinking is essential to life but our catering team try very hard to make all meals enjoyable. We purchase the best quality produce from local businesses; we get our vegetables and fruit from a local farm shop, our meat from a local independent butcher and our milk and cream from a local dairy.
