My aunt entered the home 5 1/2 years ago and I was so impressed with the care at the home that when my mother needed care I decided to choose Woodside although I live in Hertfordshire and have to travel to see them. The owner, manager and carers are excellent and everyone is treated as an individual. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this home.
