At Rayson Homes Ltd we believe that High Quality Care should be complimented by enabling our residents / clients to maintain their hobbies and interests, thus maintain the social side of their lives. In both Homes we employ the skills of several activity coordinators who provide ‘resident specific’ activities on a daily / weekly basis.  Resident Resources (click on the links below)

Here are a list of some of the activities which we enjoy:-

Onwards and upwards ……..

Its been a dreadful year for many of us but hopefully things are set to improve in 2021. Most of our residents, in both homes, have now had their second vaccinations and many of our staff have had their first vaccination too.

Unfortunately Proctor House will be saying goodbye to Sheila, their Home Manager, in April this year. Sheila has been an extremely dedicated employee who has made it her mission to ensure our older adults with Learning Difficulties received the care they deserved for the last two decades. She will be sadly missed by the Organisation, her colleagues, residents, their families and friends but we all wish her all the best for her well deserved retirement.
