About the home
Our home has been designed specifically to meet the needs of elderly residents across two sites - Happy Valley and Cairley's Croft, both offering the level of care and support you would expect from Bupa.
All our residents are different, with their own life story and experiences. We take time to get to know each one so that we can tailor the care we provide to suit their specific needs. We create a warm, friendly atmosphere where rules and regulations are kept to a minimum for residents and they are encouraged to lead as full and happy a life as possible.
