The Home is a registered residential facility providing continuing care, respite and rehabilitation.
The building itself is listed as being of considerable architectural merit, but time and changing needs inevitably produce demands to meet more modern standards.
In 1984 the centenary Appeal raised over a quarter of a million pounds to undertake vital work to the fabric of the building, as well as essential internal improvements to enhance the quality of life for residents.
Along with a skilled and professional work force, the Turner Home, which is a registered charity, is administered by the Trustee Directors and a Management Committee. For all involved in its day-to day affairs, the commitment for the care of residents remains paramount.
The Eric Fisher Wing
In 1993 a further appeal was launched to raise funds towards the new extension, comprising 44 individual bedrooms with en-suite facilities.
The Ian Tod Wing
A rehabilitation unit, with lounge, and another six bedrooms, again with en-suite facilities, was completed during the year 2000. In total a number of 59 rooms.
The Home recognizes the importance of recreation. On the first floor is a purpose built activities room to which residents have free access and the facilities of pool/snooker, cards, dominoes and board games etc.
Staff are always available via the Key-worker system, to help those who need assistance in their recreation.
