Latest update for Visitors
Here at The Orders of St John Care Trust our priority is the safety and wellbeing of residents, colleagues and visitors in our services. Following Monday’s advice by the government on the vulnerability of the over 70s we have made the difficult but responsible decision to restrict access to our homes to all but the most essential visitors required to either to protect the health of our residents, or to ensure that buildings remain safe and essential supplies are delivered.

Meet the team
A talented chef and kitchen team prepare tasty, home-cooked meals. The freshly prepared, delicious dishes are carefully balanced to get the best nutritional value and cater for individual dietary requirements and preferences. Seasonal produce is chosen whenever possible and of course, relatives and friends are always welcome to join.
The menus change daily, and the kettle is always on, so hot drinks are available throughout the day.
