There is also a large dining room, 2 enclosed gardens with a summer house where residents can enjoy the outside space and a quiet veranda.
Our residents at Bradfield love animals and pet therapy has been very successful to promote stimulation, independence and well-being. We currently have a Mini-lop Rabbit named ‘Floss’, 3 Guinea Pigs ‘Star, Wonder & Twinkle’ and a dog called Lucy who visits almost daily.
Well behaved dogs are also welcome to come into the home to visit.
