About Saffron Gardens

Our care home concept offers a nursing-care lifestyle for older people with specific nursing needs, particularly for those living with a dementia.

We take what we call a ‘person-centred’ approach to care, using knowledge of a person’s history and personality to help us provide the right support whilst maintaining dignity and choice.

Completed in December 2012, each of the five care home courts are centred around their own beautiful gardens and have homely open-plan kitchens with comfortable seating areas.  This innovative care home design provides 70 rooms, all en-suite, and includes many features to maximise independence and opportunities for people living with a dementia or with high nursing and end of life care needs.

The courts and each and room look onto private, secure courtyard gardens with plenty of areas to sit. The home is also surrounded by a landscaped garden, with parking for visitors.
