A Personal Message from Douglas Laird
- Owner and Founder of Peak Care

May I give you a very warm welcome to the Peak Care Website.

At Peak Care our Ethos is corporate strength underpinned by family values. This philosophy is at the heart of everything that we do and simply reflects the vision and principles of my own heart. It has been our honour to provide high quality residential care since 1983. We believe that great places are measured not by the quality of the architecture, but by the emotions they provoke in the people who experience them.

As you navigate through our website you will find comprehensive information on the services we offer for Grove Park our Retirement Community Village, and Peak Care Home Care our Domiciliary Service to the community.

Wherever a person fits in we are here to uplift and give care and support with joy and true compassion often making peoples' dreams a reality bringing fulfilment and peace of mind.

I hold the following qualifications: SRN - State Registered Nurse, RMN - Registered Mental Nurse, CPN - Community Psychiatric Nurse - Diploma in Management.
