Mum has been at Riverside Care home since January 2015 and has received good care. She responds better to some carers than others. Some carers have a lot more patience than others. Mum doesn't like to be rushed and some carers expect her to respond quicker. Mum has behavioral issues which I would hope that qualified staff could cope with.
