Our virtual tours enable you to find out more about life in our care home and ask any questions you may have to a senior member of our team.

The team pride themselves on creating what feels like a large extended family. Loved ones and friends often comment that they love the family feel of our care home and the fact that nothing is ever too much trouble for staff. We think this is what makes us truly special. Our dedicated and trusted team provides residential care, dementia care and respite care in the comfort of our beautiful care home. We care for our residents as if they were members of our own family and fully respect their wishes.

Award-winning care home manager

With 27 years’ experience in the care sector, home manager Veronica McCleary is a shining star. She has even won an annual award for the kindness, care and compassion she shows her residents and team. Veronica was crowned the overall winner of Sanctuary’s Employee of the Year awards, after beating hundreds of nominees. She said of the accolade: “The award is not just for me, it’s for the team because without their support I would never have achieved what I have done. It’s amazing and I feel much appreciated.”

The Manse has some fantastic facilities, including a light and airy conservatory which is a peaceful spot of the home. Residents often enjoy group and one to one activities here, or simply sit back and relax in the warmer months, spending time together or with their visitors.

Elsewhere, there is a hairdressing salon in the heart of the care home. A hairdresser from Croydon visits every Tuesday for a spot of pampering during appointments with the residents. If they wish they can book their own appointments as they would have done before moving into residential care, enhancing that sense of independence.

Outside the home, there are tranquil sensory gardens which are a peaceful spot in the heart of South Norwood. They are landscaped with raised flower beds for our residents who like to do a spot of light gardening. The front grounds also include a glorious Victorian gazebo, providing a shaded seating area for people to sit back and relax during the warmer months.

The residents have their very own gardening club, which is wonderful for both those in residential and dementia care. The raised flower beds mean residents who have restricted mobility, or are in wheelchairs, can still rekindle a pastime they may have enjoyed before moving to The Manse.
