I have no qualms about leaving my elderly mother with dementia at Squirrel Lodge. Everything mentioned below is excellent. All bedrooms are large and airy, well equipped with lovely decor as well as the lounge and dining room. Each bedroom has French windows overlooking the garden, where meals are eaten, weather permitting. Activities are arranged for those wanting to participate. There is a large car park for easy access.

My mum is 98 years old and is bed-ridden. When I go to see her she is always clean, and the care is excellent. I know I can leave my mum after a visit and know the care is in place so she has no bed sores and is happy.
