Review of Cumberland on Tuesday 18 March 2014 by Deborah Gillis (Mother was a resident there)

The care and support given to my mother during the 5 months she resided there was very good indeed. The care staff alongside outside 1:1 staff were professional, compassionate and always available for the family to talk to. The rooms are clean, comfy, and large. Facilities were numerous and staff extremely interactive with all the residence. On entering Cumberland you feel a sense of calm, the décor is modern and very inviting. Fresh flowers are always displayed throughout as well as hand spray. Information about the home, forthcoming events, weekly menus are clearly and tastefully displayed in the lobby. Management very approachable.

Review of Cumberland on Tuesday 29 January 2013 by Carla Birkinhead (Wife of resident)

My husband has been a resident for several years. I am pleased with the way that the carers look after him. They are very kind and professional towards me when I visit my husband. If I take friends with me to visit my husband the staff are very attentive and can't do enough to make them welcome.
