Pastoral Care – Arrangements can be made for regular visits by a pastoral representative All faiths are welcome.

Visitors – We encourage residents to treat Poplars like their home. This means that relations and friends are always welcome to visit residents but we politely request that they avoid meal times. Due to pressure for accommodation at our homes, it is unlikely that a room will be available for visitors although local arrangements can be made.

If you wish to discuss anything else in more detail, please telephone our Home Manager. We will be delighted to arrange a tour of our home without any obligation.
