Life at Frank Foster House
Our latest news
The Frank Foster's Tea Room has a vintage theme, specially chosen to appeal to the residents. The cafe has a homely and welcoming feel, and our residents enjoy entertaining their family and friends when they visit, with some residents making their loved ones tea and coffee as they would do at home, thus giving them a sense of empowerment. As well as entertaining visitors, our residents also enjoy regular coffee mornings in the cafe.
