At the heart of The Conifers is our highly skilled team of Health Care Assistants and Nurses that make the difference. We invest in our team to ensure they are trained to provide the high standards of care that our Residents and their families should expect.
Our management team and staff are passionate about supporting families and you are welcome at any time to discuss any aspects you might be struggling with.
One of the key areas to ensuring our residents have the best quality of life is to create a plan of care that is as individual and person-centred as possible. Our aim is to make a real and lasting difference to the people we support by achieving positive outcomes and enabling as normal and fulfilling a life as possible.
We have both Registered General and Registered Mental Health Nurses here at The Confers, with this combined knowledge we can care and support our residents to fulfil their lives in every aspect, from their minds to their bodies. We are all very passionate with end of life care and take great pride to have the privilege to support residents and their loved ones right up to the end.

“Moving my dad to Orchard Manor Care Home has been the best decision I could have made for him. The support and caring ways everyone in the home show to my dad is so special. He is a lovely man, but sometimes now with his dementia, he can easily get upset. In the previous home, they were slow to react and this led to my dad reacting in ways which were out of frustration. The staff at Orchard Manor are excellent and react so quickly to possible flair up moments. Staff treat every patient and visitor in such a welcoming and lovely way. The introduction of dolls to my dad has turned his emotions around, he now looks after them as his children and is so happy. Thank you for looking after my very special dad”!
