Listening to you

Over the past few months, we’ve been chatting to residents’ families to find out if there are ways we can make your visits even more enjoyable. Many of you have said you’d like a space of your own in the home, a place where you can relax and make yourself a drink in your own kitchen area.

So in response to your suggestions we’ve created a Friends and Family room at the home. This special space is solely for the use and comfort of residents’ visitors and you’re free to make it your own and to use it however and whenever you like.
