About the Home
Admirals Reach is perfectly set up to deal with a wide range of care needs. Our 158 rooms are separated into five houses and focus on different care requirements. Three houses care for people with dementia, one offers residential care and Drake House is designed to help our more able residents to prepare for returning home.
