The Bedrooms

Residents are welcome to arrange their room how they wish. Own furniture, as well as other personal belongings can be brought in to furnish the room, as we can move our furniture into storage.

Every room has a call bell which can be used 24 hours a day, and telephones and televisions can be accommodated for.

Our lounge, conservatory and sun lounge have been designated by residents as quiet areas. However, we also provide a television and stereo music system in these areas if they choose to be used. Residents and visitors can enjoy pleasant surroundings, while they relax in a homely atmosphere.

Regular entertainment is also organised and it is a personal decision on whether residents wish to participate or not.
