The Verge provides a level of care that encourages residents to live life their way, with health, support, purpose and connection. Residents choose how and when they receive care which is centred on respect and dignity and what matters to the individual.”

“We empower our residents to live their way, we support them to be healthy and age well, we encourage them to find fulfilment, and we help them to enjoy connections with others in warm and welcoming communities.”
