There’s a very friendly, sociable atmosphere at Bethune Court. We have a very caring and dedicated team of staff on hand to meet the individual residents’ needs. We have a full and varied activity programme to include arts and crafts, entertainers and musical events."

Being a Deputy Manager at a care home is challenging but worthwhile and I’m proud to say that no two days are ever the same. We aim to keep each day exciting with daily activities that are personal to each resident and we always encourage family and friends to stop by.
