I took over the home at the beginning of 2019, after previously owning a Domiciliary Homecare company. It had been neglected by its previous owners and had some bad press, so it has been my mission to turn it into a fantastic, homely place for our residents, future residents and staff. We’re making fantastic progress and have introduced lots of positive changes, including the refurbishment of most of the rooms and are currently planning a large extension that will house a newly fitted out kitchen.
