That way you maintain the freedom to make your own choices.
- Dementia services
We believe that a key part of creating sensitive and pleasant environments for people who are living with dementia is the quality of the relationships that we build.

The Sundials at The Garden House is an amazing place. The staff are very caring and committed to the residents they look after. They work well as a team and nothing is too much trouble. My father in law is always clean, tidy, well fed and comfortable and able to socialise. It is an excellent facility, I'm sure the best of its kind to be found anywhere. Food is great as is care, safety and the way the staff treat the residents with love, compassion, humour and laughter.
