We tailor our care plans to meet the needs of each resident who deserves to enjoy the later years of their lives in a comfortable, safe and fun environment.

“Our first residents are settling in nicely and I look forward to welcoming more residents in the near future and creating a community atmosphere for all of those who choose to make Mearns House their home.”
