Ten residents are accommodated in each of three adjoining houses, a feature which contributes to the home like atmosphere of the residence.

Residents are encouraged to personalise their rooms with their own memorabilia. The design of the building is such that residents are able to socialise in groups or retreat to quieter sitting areas located throughout the residence. Breakfast is served in the three homelike kitchen areas of each house, while lunch and the evening meal are served in the larger communal dining room. All meals are prepared fresh daily.

Experienced nursing and personal care staff are available 24 hours a day and the close proximity to the hospitals allows for ready access to medical care should the need arise.
