At St Allisa we love to embrace the skills and special interests of our residents, especially when it comes to planning activities and trips, choosing menus, making changes to the indoor and outdoor environments, and interviewing staff. We also link in with local schools, libraries, and church communities to bring extra entertainment to our residents.

At St Allisa, residents and staff form distinct households, which helps to build beautiful relationships based on understanding, friendship and trust. The people who work at St Allisa are trained to provide the highest standard of care. Team members are encouraged to find ways to improve and take time to listen to the wants and needs of each resident.
