Drake Nursing Home provides both short term and long term care for older people with dementia, mental illness and physical disability.

The ethos of Drake Nursing Home is to provide a warm, caring atmosphere with an emphasis on good home cooked food and activities. We also have a lovely sensory garden for residents to enjoy on warmer days.
