We book a variety of professional entertainers on a regular basis, and invite family and friends to share our garden events.

One of the most popular days is the arrival of the animals from Gemma's Farm, when our Residents can meet Rosie, the Shetland pony and newly hatched baby chicks.

There are also special trips out to the Frinton Summer Theatre, where a musical based on the life of Cole Porter last year proved to be a great hit.

We also like to arrange visits to local events of all kinds from craft fairs to the Clacton Air Show.

(My aunt) was very happy there; your staff were always so attentive and tried to involve her in the various activities – activities which, so other residents told me, were far more numerous and interesting than those available in other care homes.
