Sherwood House is an imposing former family home, which has been converted and refurbished to a high standard to provide residential care for 19 older people. The house is set in extensive, well maintained grounds with a sensory garden.
All residents are treated with respect and dignity. Each person is individually assessed to ensure we understand what they want and how they want to be cared for. Staff always put residents at the centre of everything they do.
Working with each person we create individual care plans and the Activities Coordinator takes these preferences into account when planning activities.
Please note the fee quoted is for a basic care package. The home provides personal quotes based on the needs of the individual. Please contact the manager to arrange a meeting where she will be able to discuss your individual requirements and provide you with a personalised quote.
