Our friendly team provides specialist residential and nursing care for older people with Alzheimer's and other types of dementia. We offer personalised care and engaging activities based on residents' individual needs, interests and preferences. Our homely atmosphere helps everyone to feel settled and happy. Residents' comfort and health is our top priority and we treat each person with dignity and respect.
At Honeysuckle House, we value residents’ ideas and encourage everyone to take part in making decisions about the home. So when we redecorate, we find out what residents would like and we keep them up to date with progress. We also offer lots of support to residents' loved ones and we've got a wonderful network of families and friends who contribute to the daily life of the home, for example by helping to plant hanging baskets and containers to keep our garden looking fresh and bright.
