Review of Barchester Gorseway Lodge

I recommend that more staff should be employed so they get time to sit and chat or take the residents out into the gardens - they only seem to have time to wash and dress and clean the rooms. If there were more staff the care would be good but as they are stretched and don't have much time to spend with the residents I've put satisfactory - I feel management should spend the budget on more staff rather than fancy facilities.
