• Rest home care
• Hospital care

Our private care rooms are spacious with monitored call bells and an ensuite bathroom, and we encourage you to personalise your room to help you feel at home. This could be with your favourite armchair, pictures, or other items that are special to you.

To support your physical and mental wellbeing we provide a monthly calendar of optional activities and events at Ernest Rutherford Village, including social hour, Triple A exercise classes, scheduled trips out and about, and more.
