What our clients have to say about us:
I visited my cousin this month and I was delighted to meet the new manager who was most supportive of the needs of my cousin who is almost 95 and has had a recent spell in the hospital which has upset her and has exacerbated her confusion. She is being well cared for and the staff are keeping me informed every step of the way which is a comfort to me because I live in Scotland.
