Care is broadly divided into three types:

  • Independent Living - Maintaining a sense of independence is incredibly important for people throughout their life, but especially as they get older. This option is for a resident who doesn’t require care services, but who wants the experience of a community.
  • Residential - For those who value their independence, but need some help with some day-to-day activities, such as dressing, bathing or taking medication. Exactly how much care is needed will depend on the unique needs of each individual.
  • Dementia - It’s the same high quality, individualised care that you’ll find in our assisted living neighbourhoods of our care homes – but with a specialised focus on caring for residents living with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia.

If you are still unsure as to what type of care you need, speak with one our friendly staff on 020 3823 6547. Alternatively, here is a link to a great resource that can give you further guidance, click here.
