Our House was purpose built 35 years ago and housed only ten residents. Since then it has been enlarged to house sixteen residents and been modified and upgraded. Originally, the average age of residents was in their early eighties, but over time the average age has increased to 92.

Further significant improvements are planned over the next five years.
