Our 3 attractive care homes in Stoke-on-Trent and Newcastle-under-Lyme, offering high-quality care including respite care and specialist dementia care.
You’ll find high-quality care in attractive surroundings , including respite care and dementia care at our care homes in Stoke-on-Trent and Newcastle-Under-Lyme.
In all three of our care homes our main aim is to create a home-from-home where residents receive person-centred, high-quality care, tailored to their individual needs. We believe that each and every one of our residents has the right to live a fulfilling, comfortable and sociable life.
We achieve this by constantly reviewing our care service and by investing in continued training and development for our care staff [link]. At the heart of all of our work is the desire to constantly keep our residents’ welfare and happiness at the forefront of our minds.
Each of our homes has excellent facilities, and their own individual character. It’s the people in each location that have made the homes so special, with our residents creating their own bonds and community and our staff bringing energy, enthusiasm and all the support that is needed.

When people have worked hard and supported others throughout their lives we believe they deserve the very best care, kindness and compassion. They need a home where individuality is emphasised, with staff that have time to give attention to the small details, and where they have the choice of enjoying the company of like-minded fellow residents.
