Retirement housing with care

Sometimes, a little extra help is all you need to allow you to stay active, to do the things you want to do and feel part of the community. At our retirement housing with care schemes, you can enjoy the comfort of your own home and the peace of mind of having a friendly and professional care team on hand every day, if and when needed.

Respite care

Our respite care provides temporary support tailored to offer loved ones a short-term care solution for the person they’re caring for. This enables caregivers to take a well-deserved break, recharge, and address their own needs, all while having the peace of mind that the person they care for is in capable and experienced hands.

Nursing care

Our nursing homes provide support and care for people with long-term health conditions, or for those who have been in hospital and who continue to need nursing care until they are able to be supported in their own home. Our nurses work closely with healthcare professionals in the community to ensure that people’s complex nursing needs are met.

Palliative care

We understand that living with a life-limiting illness or facing the end of life can be challenging and overwhelming. We offer care that supports the physical, emotional, spiritual, and practical needs and preferences of your loved one and the wider family too. Our teams are skilled and caring, and they will work with you and your loved one to help them enjoy the best possible quality of life in the time that they have.

Green care

By connecting those we support with nature through our green care therapy, also known as nature-based therapy, we’re able to promote relaxation, reduce stress, and enhance overall wellbeing. This form of therapy involves engaging older people in various activities in natural environments, such as gardening, horticulture, and animal-assisted therapy.

Music therapy

Music therapy can help people with dementia to relieve stress, express emotions, and connect with others. In each session, our experienced music therapists use their therapeutic skills to engage with residents by sharing live music, using singing, percussion, musical cues, and expressive communication.
