Mum is very happy and nothing is too much trouble for residents or there guests/family. The staff are very professional, helpful and always have the time to talk about any concerns or questions. Communication is extremely good and very timely. I love the food that's always cooked fresh and on the premises.
It's always clean and relatives are always welcome to wander round.

My mother has been a resident of Farehaven for the last 5 years. She has always been treated with respect and dignity, numerous cups of tea and biscuits supplied when she wants, she always looks clean and tidy and cared for. The home always keeps me up to date with her care and welfare by telephone.

Mum is well cared for, staff are patient and take time to explain things carefully as mother's hearing is poor. It is a great relief to both of us to know mother is safe, eating regularly and having help at hand when she needs it. They are helping mum with her mood swings and are quite willing to contact her own doctor.

The level of care is wonderful, nothing is too much trouble. Food is very good, good variety. Right from the start management team were very kind knowing what a difficult decision it was for a relative to make putting a parent into someone else’s care. Lovely room, always clean but best recommendation is mum's smiling face when I visit her.
