Where you’ll work

 

With all the comforts that give our home a real family feel, Orchard House has some very special areas created for our residents. One of these popular spots is our relaxation area, where we hold one-to-one pamper sessions. With dimmed lights, tranquil music and aromatic scents which fill the room, our residents love to relax here. They can enjoy a hand massage or manicure, or even a wet shave for our gents. Another popular place in our care home is the courtyard garden. Every care suite in Orchard House overlooks this glorious space, which sits directly in the centre of the home. While our residential dementia care suite has direct access to a secluded garden area, with raised flower beds. Our green-fingered residents enjoy looking after the plants here, with the height of the beds meaning they can continue to enjoy a favourite pastime.
