The Highgate Nursing Home

From even before it was confirmed that we had a room, the attention and understanding we received was amazing. Every one at the home was just amazing, and really went beyond the call of duty. We could not have wished or hoped for a better place for our darling mum to spend her last days in.

I have a super comfortable room, I enjoy looking out of my balcony and watching the world go by. I enjoy the food I find it tasty and classy. I don't get out of my room much but I enjoy being visited by various visitors i.e. pat dogs and having my nails done.
