This was a perfect home for my mother. It allowed her to have her freedom & independence which was very important. She was also very lucky to have met a couple of dear old ladies who kept her company on her short walks and dinner time. The staff were extremely kind and caring at all times and always had the extra five minutes for a chat.
Sadly my mother has recently passed away but she was allowed to do so with great dignity & consideration which was so important to us as a family.
