It's excellent and I am really happy to be here. It's very nice where I sit in the dining room where I eat. I really enjoy the entertainment we have here and to sing a long. I love to dance too.

I was dreading the thought of my mother being in a care home, but the management and all staff are wonderful to my mother and have been very helpful to me and the rest of our family. I know that my mother is safe, happy and being well cared for.

I had reservations when it was time for my nan to go into a home. After looking at all the homes available, Florence House was the only one which we warmed to. The staff were lovely and soon put my mind at rest. Nan is well looked after and she has never looked better. credit to the staff and manager who made the process easy to swallow. I cannot recommend Florence House enough. Thank you.

When my father was taken poorly and needed a residential home, I was very worried as I did not know what to expect. The staff at Florence House made the process very easy, they were extremely professional and helped my dad settle in very quickly. He is a new man again, as the care and support they give him has given him a new lease of life. I could not recommend them highly enough. Thank you Florence House.

My dad has been in Florence house for 14 months now. The staff and management are outstanding. Nothing is too much trouble for them and that's how it should be. My dad had his 1st birthday at the home. He was 93. They baked him a cake and had a little party in the lounge for him, relatives and any other residents who wanted to attend. He was given a crown to wear and he was king for the day. A really great day for dad and family. There is a whole lot more that could be said, just touching the iceberg.

My father had to go into the home as an emergency when my mother had a massive stroke so it was a very worrying and upsetting time for us all. However the staff were fantastic and made my father so welcome and made such a life changing time so much easier. He is now a permanent resident and it is a testament to the staff that he is so settled and happy there. He considers them his friends and they are! The level of care is amazing, they are so on the ball with any health issues and act immediately if there are any problems. It is so much less stressful for his family knowing he is being looked after so well. We can visit whenever we like and he is always clean, well fed and happy. The staff interact with the residents in a lovely manner and treat them with dignity and patience, which isn't always easy with dementia patients! I feel so lucky that dad is there.

I visited with my friend who was visiting her mum. The standard of care was excellent, I always had reservations about care homes after reading the news, the negative reports, but after visiting Florence House I was completely surprised. The standards of care was outstanding, the interaction from staff with residents was a pleasure to see. I was overwhelmed with the compassion shown.
