The Flowers Care Home was founded by Catherine, who after spending many years nursing both the elderly ladies and gents as well as the cognitive impaired including those suffering from dementia felt that there was a need for a positive bright environment where people could live safely and confidently without being made to feel inadequate or idiotic. Catherine's daughter, Sally took over the home May 1st 2015. Sally has a vast experience in both private and NHS care services. Sally is equally as committed as Catherine, in ensuring The Flowers Care Home continues to grow and maintains its high standard of care. Sally is the registered Care Manager.
Here at The Flowers Care Home we respect and empower our residents best interests. We have the necessary risk assessments in place to enable everyone to make their own choices.
