The Dales

Having a parent in care in England, when you live in Canada is challenging in itself. Add to that, concerns about press stories regarding the status of care homes in the UK. The level of stress about parents welfare becomes almost overwhelming. But not for my wife and I! My mother has been in care at The Dales for 10 years. Never in that time have we been concerned about her treatment. We are kepy updated via calls and skype with carers and management, and weekly phone calls with mum. Graham and his staff ensure we have open communication with medical staff, carers and anyone else involved in mum's daily routine. We are grateful for the Dales.
