Meet the Manager
Sarah Watson – Orchard House Care Home General Manager
I have worked within the care industry for over 20 years. I joined RCH Care Homes in 2011 as a care assistant and this is where my journey began. I worked through various different positions to progress through to where I am now as General Manager. This was many years of training and studying in which RCH supported me throughout my career changes.
Reviews & Ratings
Don't just take our word for it
Orchard House is a very pleasant care home, always clean and fresh. The staff are amazing and my stepdad is very well looked after. The food given looks good and well presented. I have had no problems at all. Any concerns are dealt with immediately if we have any.

Activities & events
Supporting our residents to enjoy every day living at Orchard House is a key focus for our dedicated team.
By getting to know each person, we are able to tailor our activities and events to their likes and dislikes as well as activities they may like to try.
No two days are the same here and, alongside our usual daily hobby-based activities, we also like to host events which are a little out of the ordinary.
In addition to art therapy, keeping fit with our chair-based exercises, baking, and quizzes. We also take great pleasure in welcoming visiting entertainers, schools and groups to our home to enjoy spending time with our residents.
Our team and residents also love pottering around the local garden centre, taking in a movie at the cinema and getting dressed up for our themed days throughout the year – complete with themed menus and decorations!
