Support for Orme care home

Orme house is privately owned, specialising in the care of people with alzheimers and dementia.

Last year's inspection by the care quality commission didn't raise any concerns and Michael Hill whose mother lived here for three years was very happy with the care she received:

She loved it there, the care in there was really really good, the staff were excellent, there's no way you could fault it. My mother died just over year ago so I haven't been in there since but everything up until the time I used to visit her was marvellous.

– Michael Hill, son of former resident

The same owners who were there when Michael's mum was a resident run the home now.
