Why choose us?

DSC_3632Morningside has a reputation for its homely atmosphere, residents are encouraged to socialise, while also remaining independent with a strong sense of worth.Most of our rooms have an en-suite facility to maximise residents’ comfort and privacy. We have a passenger lift as well as stair lifts for easy access to the first floor. Each resident enjoys the use of their single bedroom which is their private domain, those wishing to bring their own belongings with them – anything from a favourite picture or ornament, to their own furniture, are welcome to do so.

Our attractive, comfortable lounges and conservatory offer television, video and radio facilities as well as a comprehensive library. There are ample toilet and bathroom facilities; bath facilities include lifts, hoists and walk-in showers. Residents are assisted with baths as they desire and are always supervised. Privacy is respected at all times.

We have a large garden room/conservatory where many events take place. These include regular bingo sessions, quizzes, reminiscence sessions, weekly exercise classes, crafts and musical afternoons. We encourage residents to pursue any hobbies or activities and our staff are always willing to assist wherever possible. Ministers from the local church visit each month for Holy Communion and an afternoon service. Outings are also arranged for those who wish to participate; and close links are made with all local organisations to forge further activities and friendships within the local community. Participation in social activities and entertainment provide valuable stimulation, motivation and may thereby further enhance residents’ quality of life.

We are fortunate to have a beautiful landscaped garden, and during the summer the patio area provides a wonderful DSC_3680opportunity for residents to socialise and enjoy light refreshments in the summer house or under the shade of the gazebo.

The food at Morningside is yet another of our highlights! We pride ourselves on traditional English fare, our highly trained chef visits each resident following admission and regularly thereafter to discuss individual dietary needs. All meals are served in our attractive dining rooms or in residents’ own room if required. All meals are prepared fresh each day on the premises offering a varied and well balanced menu with choice at all times. Snacks and drinks are available throughout the day and night. Our modern well-equipped kitchen is of course maintained to the highest standard of hygiene and efficiency.
