We are delighted to announce we are working to provide improved care pathways with the addition of two bespoke single person services at Thors Park.
This service is being created to provide service users with a care pathway from the existing four self-contained bespoke apartments.
These two single person services will each have their own front door, lounge, kitchen to help promote independent living skills and an ensuite bathroom.
This service is situated within the extensive grounds of Thors Park and will have access to a private patio area and secure garden.
