Newspapers & Journals
Newspapers and journals are delivered to the Home daily. We can arrange for the delivery of your own newspaper on request. Newspapers and magazines are charged to the Resident’s own personal account.
Personal mail will be delivered to Residents shortly after it arrives at the Home. Residents’ requiring to send post should leave it at the front desk by the main door.
There is a fully equipped hairdressing salon on site. The Home has an arrangement with a self-employed hairdresser who takes appointments on Thursdays and Fridays each week, depending on demand. Residents wishing to make an appointment with their own private hairdresser may make use of the salon on site outwith these scheduled sessions.
A telephone line is installed in each bedroom and a telephone can be provided for making private calls. There is a charge of £10 per month for this service which covers routine call patterns. If particularly expensive calls are made (for example, international calls) these will be identified on the system and the cost passed on to the Resident’s personal account.
Residents’ IT Access
A personal computer is available on site for the use of Residents. This offers free internet access, email services and Skype. Please speak to the senior in charge to arrange for time on this PC. There is also wireless internet access throughout the home and a member of staff can provide you with the login details.
