Review of King Edward Care for the Elderly
My father was in a care home for three years before moving to The King Edward Home. The difference in the two homes is amazing and in a short time we saw a marked improvement in my father. We are delighted with all aspects of the home and have peace of mind because he is being so well looked after. The King Edward is a real home; clean, well-decorated and welcoming. The food is home cooked and appetizing. The staff are caring and very friendly, creating a family atmosphere. Our family feel so lucky and fortunate to have moved dad to The King Edward Care Home and recommend it without reservation.
