Mum is very happy with her care, as her daughter I am pleased with the care given to mum. Any problems are sorted out quickly without trouble. Privacy is given when required, dignity is kept. Cleanliness is good, the support given to residents and their families is excellent, and residents enjoy the activities in a homely atmosphere.
