How often are visits permitted?

There are no set visiting times, friends and family are welcome to visit as often as they want and we encourage them to become fully involved in life at Hutton Park. However, for security reasons it is helpful to know if any visitors are expected after 9pm. Family and friends can visit whenever they want, as much as they want but we do ask that if possible that family and friends can avoid meal times as it’s an ideal time for residents to socialise.

 


Can I bring my pet?

We are able to accommodate small pets by arrangement.
