We operate six residential homes in and around Rugby, Warwickshire. Offering high quality person-centred care for people living with dementia and related mental health needs. We provide home care, day care, and residential care - on both a respite and long-term basis.
We believe that each of our homes should provide residents with a friendly and comfortable environment. This allows residents to have as much flexibility as possible, provides a level of familiarity, and encourages activity.
We achieve this by working as far as possible to a number of person-centred care principles and training our staff to a high level, to really understand dementia.
