The Albany Nursing Home

From the moment we walk through the doors it was like home. The staff went out of their way to make us all comfortable. I would like to wish the Albany and staff all the best for the future. Nothing seems to much for the staff or the manager. I was made welcome by all staff as I walked through the doors to see my mother in law. My daughter and I were treated with respect from every one, if I had to give stars it would be 5 KEEP THE GREAT WORK GOING GUYS well done.

The Albany Nursing Home

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.
