Smoking
The Care Home accepts without reservation the overwhelming evidence that smoking is a major cause of preventable illness and death, and that the adverse effects of smoking fall not only those who themselves smoke but also on non-smokers who are exposed in their working and domestic environments to the smoke of others. Therefore Deeside Care Home is a no smoking environment.
