This greatly enhances their sense of wellbeing and dignity. This is achieved to the highest level in Upton which is a ‘best of class’ home with a trademark Waypoints’ design that includes;

    • large atrium entrance with an impressive reception area and street scene with a 60’s hairdressing salon and ye Olde Sweet Shoppe

The public area just outside of these retail units is somewhere where families can enjoy a drink and something to eat or when the weather permits and tables and chairs are placed outside they can watch the world pass by.’
