Review of Honey Lane Care Home

The first thing that struck me when I first visited the home was the happy atmosphere, with carers and all staff extremely friendly and compassionate to the residents. The staff are devoted to the residents, plus the layout of the building is perfect for us. I'm delighted my m7um is getting the best support here in this friendly care home. Plus the activities are on all the time and put together with great care and attention.
