    I found that the Admin staff were very helpful and efficient.I thought the place looked neat,lidy and the atmosphere seemed like a home away from home.(of course it cannot complete on that level,as we all would like to stay at home...but once our medical needs cannot be accomplished,then this place fills such a need.

    Mum spent the last 18months of her life there. Made many friends but passed away 6months short of her 100th birthday. The staff, nurses, managers, cleaners, cooks, we're so friendly and caring. Simply the best place.
