A truly magnificent care home Moorhaven - A very homely environment with a smile and a welcome as you arrive. Lorraine and staff are so kind and helpful, considerate and nothing is too much trouble. Attention to detail with medication and well being. My husband has lived at Moorhaven since July 2014, he has a lovely clean room and is very happy and settled, which gives me as a wife " peace of mind." I will always be grateful to them for giving us our quality of life back.

My cousin had been in and out of hospital for several months before she went to Moorhaven for three weeks respite care. Everyone was very kind and helpful. Whilst there my cousin improved her mobility, put weight back on and made friends.
