I recommended The Herons to my father as I (his daughter) work at The Herons. I work nights and have worked at The Herons for seven years. A couple of months ago my sister-in-law started working here. My father is very happy here and has come on leaps and bounds, he loves the home/staff

The Herons

My mother is a retired social worker who has seen the inside of many care home and did not want to go and live in one. We persuaded her to try two weeks respite because staying at home with homecare was having a detrimental effect on her health. After two weeks at The Herons she was sleeping better, eating a more varied diet than she has in years and had been able to get outside and exercise more than she has in the last three months. It wasn't enough to persuade her to stay on instead of going home, and she wasn't without grumbles, but she did say that as care homes go, it is one of the best, the staff are very nice and the manager is very approachable. I full agree, the staff have been excellent!
