What our clients have to say about us:
I am very pleased with the care and attention my mum receives. Her general condition and health has improved greatly since she has been a resident (nearly a year now!). All the staff treat her with respect and encourage her to stay mobile and drink plenty, to help with her catheter. There is always a good atmosphere when I arrive for visits. The staff are happy to converse and advise me if mum needs anything to make her life as comfortable as possible. The activities side is still a little lacking - as I think it benefits everybody if they are stimulated and encouraged to join in with exercises and games etc. It is a nice touch that Mum's appearance has improved by the regular hairdo and manicures that are available at the home. Well done everyone!
Julia S (Daughter of Resident)
I have always found mum is treated with respect and an understanding of her dementia which can be a real challenge at times. When needed medical care has been instant and I have always been informed. The overall care is a high standard. Staff are great and I am content knowing my mum is receiving the best attention 24 hours a day. Other homes have not compared.
