My brother was in care for 2 years with Alzheimers. I was very pleased he went to Acorn House because he was very happy. The staff were very caring and understanding of his needs. When I visited him in the sitting room I watched how the staff looked after the residents. They were very caring and understanding of their needs. It was lovely to see how much care the residents had from the staff. If I had to go into a home I would choose Acorn House.
