We provide person-centred care, which means that we want our residents to make choices about how they live their daily lives with our additional support and care.

We strive to create a homely atmosphere in a relaxed and secure environment where residents are encouraged to be as independent as possible and individuality is respected.

Staff members work closely with family, friends and carers, providing them with support, and work alongside palliative care specialists to provide care in an environment that suits the needs and wishes of the resident.
Welcome to Pickering House
