How will you help me to settle in?

From the moment you arrive at Templeton House our staff will do everything possible to ensure that your stay will be welcoming and comfortable.  We will endeavour to make your admission relaxed and informal.
Your family and friends are welcome and may remain with you while you settle into your new surroundings.

How often are visits permitted?
There are no set visiting times and friends and family are welcome to visit as often as they want and we encourage them to become fully involved in life at Templeton House. However, for security reasons it is helpful to know if any visitors are expected after 9pm. Family and friends can visit whenever they want, as much as they want but we do ask that if possible that family and friends can avoid meal times as it’s an ideal time for residents to socialise.

Can I bring my pet?
Regrettably we are unable to accommodate pets.

How will I pass the time at Templeton House?
Various social events, entertainment and activities are organised to ensure that there is always something interesting and stimulating going on. Our Activities Coordinators will support and encourage you with any hobby and shopping trips, and individual therapeutic treatments can be arranged to suit your needs.
