Why choose The Maples Care Home?
As a family business we believe in putting our residents first, to create a homely atmosphere and to maintain the standard of care that improves the quality of life for our residents.
Our approach to caring has evolved over many years through listening to our residents needs, and by ensuring that we can meet their needs wants and wishes.
We have a relaxed pace of life and are flexible with routines, each of our residents chooses what they want to do and when they want to do it.
We realise moving into a care home can be a difficult decision as there is concern over losing one’s independence and sense of control. We plan and deliver our services in a way that preserves our residents independence and choice.
From the moment a new resident arrives our staff treat them with tenderness and respect. We ensure our residents have choices about what they do and how they are treated.We believe with the standard of care, comfortable accommodation combined with our experience will allow people to receive the very best attention and quality of life but also make the transition from their home as easy as possible.
