People move into Haighfield as their permanent home and it is promoted as such to residents and their family & friends. Accordingly, visits welcome at anytime although the home does however request that visits at meal times and late evening are avoided wherever possible.
The main car park was extended in 2015 and is at the rear of the home. In the very unlikely case that all spaces have been taken alternative parking is difficult but local businesses have been amenable to people utilising their parking facilities when asked.
