Grays Fair is outstanding both for day care and respite. The staff are so caring and kind, and do everything to make the people in their care feel special. The whole of Grays Fair is always so clean and nice, with good food and excellent facilities. I would not want my husband to go anywhere other than Grays Fair. I have complete rest in knowing he is in excellent hands.
