Davidson House

As a retired pastor I have many years experience of visiting care homes and now regularly visit my own sister in Davidson House. I find the staff unfailingly helpful and considerate. The facilities and furnishings are on a generous scale and attractively presented. I have never found any of the helpers officious or inattentive or speaking or behaving inappropriately. I consider Davidson House to be exemplary.
