Quality Health Care

Whether your needs are for respite, nursing, dementia, palliative, residential, convalescent, personal or specialist stroke care we are confident you will be delighted with the support our homes provide.
Core values throughout our organisation are "the 6 Cs": Care, Compassion, Competence, Communication, Courage and Commitment.

Good dental care helps residents to eat well and maintain a good diet.



Rather than re-purpose old buildings Eastgate homes are all designed as care homes from the ground up. Our focus is on providing the best environment for our residents. That means en-suite rooms with walk-in showers. Doors, lifts and corridors all wide enough to allow a bed or wheelchair pass easily. Residents can move between their private rooms, the dining and lounge areas without needing to use any steps.
There is parking on site and free WiFi access.

Enrichment activities

Your first concern will be for the medical aspects of care.  We place a very high value on providing quality of life too.  That means physical and mental stimulation.  Armchair exercise sessions, outings, books and TV, music, games, craft and entertainments.  All tailored to the preferences and abilities of the individual.

We welcome visiting entertainers and where practicable encourage residents to continue with interests such as music, gardening, crafts.
