Background to Margaret House

Margaret House is an independent family run care home. It was
established in 1975 by my parents and has been managed by the
family ever since.

We appreciate what a big decision it is when our resident’s
and their families choose to make Margaret House their new
care home. My parents instilled in me from an early age, that we
always treat every resident in the same way as we would treat a
beloved member of our own family and it is this family ethos of
‘because we care’ that continues to underpin everything about
the way the home and the staff operates today and everyday.

That caring extends not only to our residents, but to their
relatives as well. Living at Margaret House is very much home
from home, which is why relatives are warmly welcomed to
the home at all times. Relatives and friends are invited to join
residents for lunch or dinner and to participate in any of the
many activities that take place.

We believe that our residents should enjoy an active and
fulfilling life and this is why we offer a wide range of both
individual and group activities,as well as maintaining close
links with the local community.

Please come and visit us for a cup of coffee and see for yourself the
atmosphere and lifestyle that Margaret House offers.
