Care and support

We pride ourselves on treating people as individuals so all our residents have care plans tailored to their individual medical, social and emotional needs. We review care plans on a regular basis and can involve family and friends in this process.
For extra peace of mind, your apartment will have an emergency pull cord system that immediately alerts the 24-hour care team that you need assistance.
