Review of Queen Elizabeth House

My mother has now been a resident at Queen Elizabeth House for almost 2 years. During that time the care and attention she receives has gone from strength to strength. During a recent bout of ill health the carers were really on the ball, and kept me up to date at all stages. Whilst she would still prefer to be in her own home, this is clearly the next best thing and gives all the family peace of mind.

Review of Queen Elizabeth House

My mother became a resident of the home in April 2014 after a difficult period falling a fall. I have nothing but praise for the management and staff of the Home in ensuring that she is looked after safely with dignity and compassion.
