Review of The Whitecroft

My mother was lucky to have had such a lovely home in her final years. She was a resident for 11 years and enjoyed exemplary care. As well as the pleasant surroundings, pretty garden and comfortable accommodation she was a part of 'the Whitecroft family'. All the staff, worked hard to provide a homely environment with interesting activities and a warm welcome to mum's visitors. At the end of her life it was a great comfort to us that she received such loving care. Mum's family will have fond memories of her enjoying her life at the Whitecroft.

Review of The Whitecroft

My aunt has been a resident of this facility for 4 years. She has always been shown respect, dignity and outstanding care for her dementia. Her care has allowed me to feel at ease knowing she is always safe and secure. Denise White, manager and all her many caring staff are extra ordinary and amazing. They should all be very proud in making such a big difference in someones life

Review of The Whitecroft

From the outset we have been very impressed with Whitecroft. It is warm and friendly and not on the least contrived. All the staff are extremely caring warm and friendly. My mother in law Mrs Hilda Moore entered the home in April 2013 and died on January 25th 2014. Towards the end of her days the staff were exemplary in the care and attention they gave her, we could not have asked for more.
