Summary of servicesA purpose built unit for up to six people. It is fully wheelchair accessible and all rooms are single with on-suite facilities which have remote controlled H-hoists so that even the most severely disabled people can manage their own personal care needs. The unit also benefits from the provision of wheelchair accessible transport which facilitates the day care and social activity programmes.
