Testimonials

I always receive a welcome every time I visit my wife. This homely residence is where my wife has spent the last 13 months. It is reassuring for me to know she is well looked after. The manager and staff offer their full attention at all times.

My husband has been in here for 9 months and the care he receives is great. The carers are kind and gentle. He is treated with respect as am I. I feel part of his care and can visit whenever I like.

I am always kept up to date if there are any problems and if a doctor visits they advise me so I can be there if needed to be.

My mother spent a brief, but much happier, time here following an extremely unhappy 3 year period in her previous care home.

The staff here were professional, kind and caring and I would recommend that people visit this home to see what it can offer.
