This is our first experience of having a close relative in a care home, so therefore we have nothing to compare with. Our sister appears to be happy.

The care home and the staff are good. Some young new carers are not yet as good as the one's who have there longer. The rooms are OK, some on the small side.

I have been moved to a large room here which has allowed me to continue working - fitting all my computers and books in. Although the building has poor ventilation leading to gross overheating it is otherwise quite well appointed. Cannot comment on winter conditions yet. There is a screamer down the corridor, which is disturbing.

My mother, Elizabeth Painton, was a resident since 2006, both as a private fee paying resident and then council assisted. She has always been looked after wonderfully, especially on the second floor by Sister Kumbi and all the other sisters and carers.
