    They have looked after my mother so well. Always let me know if any issues with her. Everyone is very friendly and very kind and caring. They all love it when l bring her dog in to see her and all other residents.

    Mum's just started exploring this new home, but things are looking great so far. The sales director was lovely - her own father is there now! The head nurse and I had a wonderful chat the second day on how to reassure mum, and make sure her needs were being met. I'm really ecstatic that we found the right place for her ❤️ It's potentially such a difficult time but so far, things are going as well as can be expected 😌
