We provide our residents and service-users with the dedicated, professional and personalised care they need, while promoting their physical wellbeing and happiness.

We provide specialist, intensive care and rehabilitation in the following areas:

  • residential nursing care for older people
  • chronic mental health, such as schizophrenia, bipolar affective disorder, personality disorder and eating disorders
  • acquired brain injury and neuro-degenerative conditions
  • young onset dementia, dementia in older people and alcohol-related dementia
  • Huntington’s disease
  • sexual offending and disinhibited behaviour
  • locked hospital wards for patients who have been sectioned

Our programmes combine mental health therapies with coping strategies and daily living skills. Our multi-disciplinary teams have strong links with community health professionals, such as dieticians and physiotherapists.

In addition to providing dementia care, care for those with Huntington’s disease, and respite care for people with young onset dementia, we also provide specialist nursing care for adults with specialist mental health needs and challenging behaviour.
