Review of Southernwood

The staff were extremely kind to my mum and myself, I felt I knew them really well. I observed them to be very kind to other residents. I visited at all times of day and night, mum was always clean and tidy, they helped feed her (she was assessed as needing 24 hour nursing care), they sat with her and reassured her, mealtimes were organised, clean and tidy. I felt we were helped all the way. Activities were organised by staff, quiz, manicures etc.
