Show more "We like to think we are one big happy family here with a very strong community feel to the building. Our staff are the key to our success and continually go that extra mile for our residents displaying an understanding, compassion and superb level of customer service. Every single member of staff has an extremely good relationship with each resident, ensuring their well-being, happiness and needs are met.

As The Hawthorns employ a full time Well-being and Activities Co-ordinator who is responsible for creating, developing and running a monthly Activities programme, this ensures the residents are always encouraged to learn something new and take part in activities they perhaps would normally think about; this encompasses and follows our bespoke Well-being model developed purely for The Hawthorns.

Our prices are fully inclusive of all utilities, council tax, meals, activities & entertainment, housekeeping, shuttle bus service and outings. For more information contact us, by phone or email, as above." Show less
