My sister Paula is a resident and is very happy there. She has a lovely room and the staff attend to her every need. She loves to be in the lounge sitting in her special chair. The food is excellent and she has plenty to eat and drink, especially her cups of tea. My parents were very happy that Paula got a place in Mary Murray house and my mother used to ring 3 or 4 times a day to ask about her. The staff were always very courteous and came to expect her calls each day. The staff keep me up to date with what is going on with Paula and I have every confidence that she is being cared for as an individual with her own very special needs I would recommend Mary Murray House.
