I visit my Aunt at Vesta Lodge and I cannot get there often due to living so far away. Every time I visit I am welcomed by the staff and have every faith in the care my Aunt receives. She is treated very well and she is always smiling and laughing with the staff and other ladies she sits with. Thank you Vesta Lodge for all you do SJ xxx
