Kirk House (Housing with Care)

Kirk House (Housing with Care)

Residential accommodation for older people

Kirk House is a "housing with care" facility in which independence, freedom of choice, self-esteem and dignity are respected and promoted. Residents are supported to maintain links with their family and local community and the level of care each receives is tailored to meet their individual needs.

Kirk House has recently completed work on adapting one of its corridors into Memory Lane, which will provide specialist care for people living with dementia.  Click here for more information.  
"You strike up good friendships. It's like home, but on a corridor not an avenue"
