The gardens of our CARE HOME have been carefully landscaped at the front and back with raised flowerbeds, a pergola and a fish pond plus a variety of trees, shrubs and plants to provide interest throughout the year.
Various areas have been paved and chairs and tables are provided to enable our residents to have a soothing and tranquil place to sit out during the warmer months. For the cooler times our residents can relax in a large conservatory to observe the wildlife in the back garden.
Richmondwood is proud of its reputation for offering continuing independence, freedom and most importantly companionship to its residents. We have fostered a family atmosphere within the home and to ensure peace of mind, 24 hour care is on hand from an experienced Manager and a team of highly trained and motivated staff.
At Richmondwood we are very proud of our home and the quality of life we provide to our residents. Our Care Home is in a prestigious suburb and has been established under the current ownership since 1986.
Although times and regulations have changed, our aim is still the same as it always was, to encourage independent living for our residents within a caring and happy atmosphere.

We can call on the primary health care team from your local GP surgery to carry out any procedures requiring a trained nurse, as you would if you lived at home.
