What our clients have to say about us:
Mum came to the home in February 2015; she settled in remarkably well. That was due to the care, kindness and support of all the staff at The Whitecroft. They put her at ease and were on hand to make her feel part of a family. Mum made many friends and joined in with all activities until she became too ill. The staff wanted to care for mum for end of life but she died before that could happen.
