Ruth Kigaa

Karuna Manor is an exceptional luxury home offering expert and experienced residential, nursing and dementia care. For residents requiring a little assistance day to day, to others who benefit from more support or help, the dedicated care team, comprising of carers, nurses, hospitality and wellbeing team members, are at the heart of ensuring every resident is cared for in a way best suited to them.

With individual care creating a feeling of being at home and led by an experienced and established management team, the care and wellbeing team focus on maintaining lifestyle choices to support residents to enjoy fulfilling and stimulating lives with care and support to retain and promote choice, personal preferences and independence.

The beautiful and tastefully decorated home offers an inviting homely environment, maintained to a high standard, with stunning landscaped gardens, easily accessible with thoughtful all year around planting.

Seating and lounge areas throughout the home offer company or quiet places to enjoy with guests and visitors and in addition to the fully en-suite rooms and spacious lounges and dining areas, the home also has unrivaled facilities, including a temple, a Yagna Shala, a hair and beauty salon, a boutique shop, a Japanese water garden and an in-house cinema.

The home caters specifically for the vegetarian community, with award-winning in-house chefs freshly preparing delicious Gujarati food offering a range of choice throughout.

Good communication is at the heart of providing great care, so as well as English, Gujarati and Hindi are also spoken at the home.
