Home Life at Rashwood

Alongside excellent care, we believe in providing the very best in lifestyle as well as care for our residents. Residents and staff share in the desire to make this a reality with consultation and discussion on what they enjoy, want to experience and where to visit. We seek to employ the best in order to provide the best, and our employees regularly achieve awards in the sector that recognise their achievements in Customer Care.

Rashwood is first and foremost home with comfortable environments where residents genuinely feel at home. The highest standards of comfort and cleanliness are as important as the tasty meals. We understand the importance of eating well and the enjoyment of eating together, with friends. The daily meals provide plenty of variety, are freshly prepared and use seasonal ingredients.

Along with our excellent staffing levels, our Homes are supplied with the very best equipment to assist the team in going about their duties and ensuring the comfort and safety of those we care for.

We work hard to provide a range of interesting and stimulating activities and arrange for visitors from the community to entertain, interact and add to daily life and experiences on a regular basis.

There are places to sit for quiet reflection, places to chat with new friends, places to play board games or to share a cup of tea or an evening drink.
