    Where you’ll work

    Our residents also really enjoy their weekly visits from toddlers at a nursery in Telford, who always arrive at our care home armed with an abundance of Lego, games and play dough. No doubt the home’s new purchase of an ice cream making machine will mean they visit even more frequently! Whether partial to strawberry sauce, hundreds and thousands or chocolate sprinkles, our residents are very fond of this latest addition to the new cinema room. Also in the room is a vintage popcorn machine.
