Our Philosophy

It is our aim that those who live at The Chestnuts should do so with dignity, have the respect of those who support them and be entitled to live a full and active life and be given the fundamental right to individuality.

We wish to provide care that is specifically tailored to meet a person's needs and that recognises their uniqueness. We understand that this is only achievable by building both professional and personal relationships between staff and residents and one that is built on trust and mutual respect.


We know how important it is for a person to maintain their freedom to express themselves and be involved in decisions and choices about their care. We want to make the people living here feel safe and secure in the knowledge that we are there if they need us and that they are not alone.

Family and friends are important to us and are always welcome. We want them to feel part of the Home, to get to know the staff and those who live here and to be part of our community.
