A vital part of our Life Care program is to create individual care plans which provide a comprehensive approach to meeting residents’ needs.

All of the family and I are so thrilled that we managed to get Geoffrey into Greenway Gardens. All the staff and carers are wonderful with everybody. Myself, his wife, I couldn’t be happier with the treatment and care he receives and, if the day ever dawns that I am unable to look after myself any longer, I would wish above all else that Greenway Gardens would look after me.
