This includes serving personnel, or those who have previously served, who have received one day of pay and were aged 16 or over at the time of service.

Prior to admission, we require:

  1. our residents to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 (“fully vaccinated” as defined in Government regulations and guidance for England) unless they are exempt and
  2. where applicable, for proof of vaccination to be provided. If you cannot comply with this criteria prior to admission, please contact us to discuss your individual circumstances and your options.

What sets us apart is the extra effort our staff put into ensuring all our residents get the most out of life here. Our dedicated team of care assistants and nurses are proud of the excellent work they do to make Maurice House feel like a really special place.
