My nan spent her final year at the age of 96 living in Cunningham house. I cannot recommend this home enough from the very first day until my nan's last breath she was treated with care and dignity. The home and every member of the team down to the laundry women and all the cleaners are respectful and are fantastic at there jobs. We as a family cannot fault this wonderful home at all and the staff became like family. I am so pleased with this home and when my nan was passing away they treated her with dignity and respect and was absolutely fantastic with us as a family. We will really miss going to such a wonderful place. Jo hunt Florence's granddaughter .
