At the heart of the home is our philosophy of care, the Eden Alternative, where staff encourage social interaction, engagement and work towards the eradication of loneliness and boredom.

Bridge Haven provides a safe, warm and welcoming environment with bright lounges and en suite bedrooms to support person centred care, many rooms overlook the gardens that surround the home, with the suite names following a floral theme of Primrose and Bluebell.

Facilities at Bridge Haven include the “The Snug”, a place for residents to enjoy a drink or two with friends, and a cinema room to catch up on all the latest films or revisit old classics. Residents can also join in with a daily programme of activities throughout the home and the minibus allows residents the opportunity for day trips out to local places of interest.
