At Amberwood we put a lot of time and thought into providing a warm and welcoming community. We like to go out of our way to make you feel comfortable and secure.


With well-maintained gardens and light airy rooms, Amberwood is a place where you can be yourself. Residents know they can socialise with others if they want to, but at the same time their individual privacy is respected. Our staff are approachable, friendly, caring and community-minded, and there’s lots of lively entertainment for those who are in the mood.


The on-site kitchen at Amberwood provides delicious, healthy meals and snacks, and we can cater to individual preferences and needs.


Our large multi-cultural team bring many good things to the Amberwood community. As well as contrast and interesting stories, their diversity allows communication in a variety of different languages. The team are all well-trained, plus they’re always bright, cheerful, caring and happy.


Activities Programme

We encourage our residents to continue with activities they already enjoy - we also help them to discover new hobbies. As well as a varied activities programme, we offer the opportunity for specially requested events and outings as well.


Our dedicated recreational therapists keep programmes varied and interesting. We have exercise groups, walking and talking sessions, shopping trips and scenic excursions, craft activities, games, quizzes and live music and entertainment. And books, games and movies are always available.


Residents can join a group, get together with a friend or visitor, or spend some quiet time pursuing their own interests. There are many places available to suit all of these needs.
