A range of activities and events are organised, which help keep people occupied and entertained.

“People are cared for by kind, attentive staff. We saw care workers assisting and directing people in a calm, professional manner.

“People receive a good standard of care and support that promotes their physical and mental well-being. There are ample opportunities for people to socialise with others and take part in activities they enjoy.”
“We saw people socialising with others, attending the hairdressing salon, and spending time alone, as desired. Some told us they like watching the pet budgies in one of the lounges. There are well-being coordinators in each of the home’s buildings who organise various individual and group activities and other events.”
