Argyles Nursing Home

The care given at the Argyles is generally very good. Individual carers are very kind. Staff turnover is very low. Food seems to be very good. My mother has put on weight. Great efforts are made to entertain the residents. The refurbishment has made it into an excellent environment. A genuine desire to make the residents' lives of as good a quality as possible is evident in spite of some small inefficiencies. Nurses always on duty.

Argyles Nursing Home

My mother has been a resident for 13 months, before this she came on respite. Her decision to become a full time resident was based on her respite experience. Since being here she has thrived in the environment and has nothing but praise for the home and staff. Visiting the home is lovely as you do feel that there is a community into which you are welcomed.
