We’re Here for You

Gate House is a privately owned care home providing support and accommodation for adults with mental illness. It has a friendly and relaxed atmosphere with positive interaction.

The home was established over 20 years ago by the current providers, Mr. and Mrs Palmer, and since this time it has been delivering support and care to people with mental health issues.

No care home can function well or achieve the best outcomes unless the management and staff work hand in hand. Some of our staff have been with us for over over 10 years while others for 2-3 years. However, regardless of the length of time they have been employed here, they are fully committed to delivering the best possible support and care to the Service Users.

The home encourages Service Users to keep contact with their relatives and friends and to engage as much as possible with the local community and use local facilities such as leisure activities libraries etc.

We have seen many changes over the years in the care industry, but we are flexible and versatile enough to embrace them.

Our vision is to provide a professional service which encompass.

  • Safety
  • Having the right outcomes, including clinical outcomes.
  • Be a good experience for the people that use it.
  • Help prevent illness, and promote healthy, independent living.
  • Be available to those who need it when they need it.

Our current manager, Josephine Sackey, is the third manager since the home opened in 1993. She has been with us for about 18 months now. Josephine is determined to continue the good service we provide and make improvements where possible. She comes with several years experience working in the mental health field.
