After looking at six care homes, I picked The Albany as to my mind it had the best combination of facilities for my mums needs. This I believe, with hind sight, to be correct. As mum had suffered a head injury she had little idea of who, where, when or why and The Albany gave her the time and care for her to get her head back together, to be self aware and make simple decisions. A job well done.
