Located in the popular suburb of Stoke, Ernest Rutherford Retirement Village is handy to both shops and the seaside. The combination of location and modern village design, makes Ernest Rutherford a perfect choice for retirement living.

At the heart of the village is our care centre which offers resthome, hospital and dementia level care. We also offer short-term care ranging from one day to several weeks. All our rooms are spacious and comfortable and include a private ensuite, heating, a television and either garden, courtyard or atrium views. If your needs become more complex, we provide outstanding hospital level care and clinical support. Ernest Rutherford has a purpose built dementia care unit which is secure, warm and has a homely environment. Here, we strive to maintain the safety and dignity of our residents at a time when they are particularly vulnerable. Special design features, such as textured walls and use of colour, support residents in finding their way about. There are also secure indoor and outdoor areas which are monitored unobtrusively from staff.
