In the Manor, we recognise the special gifts and qualities of each of our residents, family members and our staff. We have created a secure and stable environment where life, love and laughter abound.
The Manor accommodates 60 Residents in single rooms with ensuites within an Edenising environment. Our common living areas include formal and informal lounges, formal and informal dining rooms, library, drawing room/craft/activities and a gym.
Helping families maintain joyful relationships … The care of our Residents is a partnership with families. We encourage you to use our dining room as a restaurant and join your loved ones for a meal. Familiar relationships are important in enabling our Residents to continue to engage in the lives of their families.
Maintaining links with the community … Residents are able to develop and maintain friendships through various groups within the Village and outings with family members.
Recognising the value of companionship … The Manor has four individual houses each accommodating 15 Residents in single suites. Each house has a lounge/kitchenette that encourages friendships to be nurtured. One of our four houses is additionally secure with keypad access doors and accommodates Residents with dementia in a smaller secure, familiar area.
A secure environment nestled within a caring retirement community… In a secure, stable environment, life can still be spontaneous. Our lifestyle program is specifically tailored to supporting the needs of all Residents and embracing each moment as a valued lived experience.
