Alexander House Rest Home
Alexander House is a refurbished villa which started as an 8-bed Rest Home in the 1980s. There have been several extensions since and now is a reputable 20-bed residence. We offer a small, warm, friendly home with an old age ambience, where the residents are the focus, we aim to make their day every day. The hub of our Rest Home is the kitchen where our home cooked meals and baking adds to the feel of a home away from home.
