Visiting Facilities 

Greensward has a dedicated visiting area with direct access from our car park.  This room was built specifically so that visiting during the recent pandemic could continue. The current Government guidelines for visiting mean that we can invite friends and family into the home, but this facility remains available for use. 


We are so fortunate to not only have beautiful sea views but to also have access to our private lawned garden. The garden has a level pathway all the way round to enable residents to walk or access the garden in a wheelchair.
