We are a family owned care home, providing 24 hour care to 36 elderly residents. We believe in traditional values and keep our environment friendly, clean and most importantly caring. Our home is clean, homely and offers comfortable facilities along with home cooking and activities. We treat residents how we would like our loved ones to be taken care of with dignity and respect. All of this would not be possible without our dedicated manager, Joanne Smart and her fantastic team. Our staff, residents and families have totally amazed us with how they have coped and supportive each other through the Covid-19 pandemic. We are extended family and a great team. Please call Joanne for an informal chat about how we can help you on 01708 226362 or email: freshfields265@btconnect.com or zoe.kerley@btconnect.com
