Welcome to

Somerfield Rest Home

We offer 40 bedrooms, most with ensuites, two dining rooms and two lounges. Residents enjoy a sunny internal courtyard, and beautifully landscaped grounds that surround the accommodations. Somerfield allows maximum freedom of movement in a modern, safe and secure environment.

Staff are qualified and competent with a special interest in working with people with dementia. They work to ensure residents are able to maintain their dignity and independence while receiving the level of care appropriate to their needs. Our registered nurse plans, implements and evaluates each residents care in conjunction with the family and carers.

The individual interests of residents are catered to by their tailored activity programmes. Regular activities and outings ranging from visiting entertainers, sing-a-longs, library book exchange, happy hour, indoor games, shopping trips (close to Barrington Mall and Park) feature regularly.
