Before a service user moves into our home, we invite the resident, their family /friends to visit us and view the home and ask any questions they may have. Once the resident, family confirmed that they want to proceed, a pre-admission assessment will be completed on the perspective resident to determine if the home is able to meet their needs. The admission will take place once all parties involved are satisfied. We accept service users who fund for themselves as well as those who are funded by the councils and the NHS.
