St Annes is a home which strives to meet the individual needs of our residents with respect, dignity, love and compassion. We aim to ensure that each person is respected for who they are and that their needs, wishes and wants are met in a safe, caring and thoughtful way.
St Annes is registered with the care quality commission to provide care (without nursing) to those aged 65 or over.
Each resident has a personal and individualised plan of care to ensure that all their care needs are met while ensuring that their wishes and preferences are placed at the heart of their care.
A team of highly trained staff are on duty 24 hours a day and are committed to providing a high standard of individualised, person cantered care.
The Homes Manager and Deputy Manager (Carol and Lisa) ensure that all staff training is current and up to date to make sure that the safety and wellbeing of our residents is central to the care we provide.
