This Care Home is certainly the most extraordinary facility that I have ever visited. The very first thing that strikes you on your secure entry is the spotlessly clean condition the Home presents with absolutely no odours present and to discover that is throughout the whole building. It must rank as one of the finest Care Homes in the country because I just can't imagine any other facility approaching this level along with the superb attitude of the staff here. I am just an ordinary visitor but on a regular basis, and I witness staff kissing and cuddling their elderly people in their care regardless of the mental or physical condition. I have been in the fortunate position of running my own medium sized company and I know that dedicated staff make the huge differences in success or failure, running a company you soon discover they are the biggest asset of any company and this Care Home has managed to gather a wonderful caring team of staff together.
I gladly mark all the options as excellent without question.
