My husband has now been in The Martlets for five weeks. Through this enormous period of readjustment we have been shown great kindness and understanding. My husband has been shown excellent care and is very happy to be in The Martlets. He is physically disabled but not demented and is a highly intelligent man. He has rated Martlets 9/10 which is praise indeed. He was dreading going into a home (The staff deserve the highest praise and rates of pay) Thank you so much.
