My father was a resident at Bramble Lodge. In the time he was there he was treated with the utmost care and compassion. The owner/manager has employed a fantastic group of people. They obviously enjoy their work and they get a lot of training and encouragement. This in turn shows in their commitment to the well being of the residents. All of the staff are professional and helpful, but just as important there is lots of warmth and happiness evident. I believe that the carers are the most important factor in the residential home we choose, and with that in mind I highly recommend Bramble Lodge.
