In 1994, Anita & Tim Dymond purchased ‘Herons Lea’, as a large former gentleman’s residence. It was empty, & needed lots of vision & hard work before our first resident came to join the ‘family’.
In 1998, we added our first extension (due to demand) & a large conservatory. We started with a capacity of 7, & now 20 residents – still very small and homely. In 2018, we converted the conservatory roof to connect to a large dining room.
Since that time, we pride ourselves on providing high quality person centred care & have achieved ‘Outstanding’ in care, as part of our CQC inspection in April 2018.
We pride ourselves on employing exceptional quality staff – Management, Care, Catering & House Keeping. Regular training is provided , & staff retention is also something we are proud of. A good team is essential in order to operate a happy & efficient home.
