What our clients have to say about us:

I visited my father today at Humfrey Lodge; he moved in recently. I am happy with how he would seem to be settling into his new home. Staff are very friendly, supportive caring and attentive.

Ian B (Son of Resident)

It has been truly astonishing to see how our friend has come to life at Humfrey Lodge, after his struggles, progressively more profound, of trying to live independently. Now he is positive, alert, content and, quite often, singing! The quality of his life has been transformed, solely because of your amazing care and attention.
