Gloucester House

My husband spent seven months at Gloucester House and died there on 6th September 2015. He required total nursing care in the last months of his life. This was given to him in a caring and compassionate way. There is a friendly, informal attitude to residents and they are treated as individuals with dignity. For the last two weeks of his life he was given excellent palliative care by the nursing and care staff. I was able to visit at any time and stay with him as much as I wanted. Thank you
