Some people need help with eating and drinking, assistance with their toileting needs and mobility or other aspects of personal care, whilst others may be more independent.

We encourage loved ones to personalise their rooms and bring items that make them feel more at home. All of our bedrooms are fully furnished with a single bed, flat screen TV, armchair, wardrobe, chest of drawers, and nightstand. If larger furniture is to be brought in, please check with us and we’ll do our best to accommodate you. Please note, we do require all furniture that is brought into the home to be removed at the end of the occupancy.
