    The Mary Potter Nursing Home at The Forrest Centre is like a second home to us. Mum has been living here for over six years. The staff are friendly, caring and professional, and they consistently go above and beyond our expectations. The facility is modern, comfortable, spotless and up-to-date. We enjoy our visits to Mum at the Mary Potter Nursing home. We attend the regular Thursday morning church service, and my father also enjoys the exercise class on Monday mornings. There is a real feeling of family and community here.
