Review of Redwood on Saturday 12 October 2013 by Sandra M (Family of Care Home Resident)

Wonderful staff who really care about and for the residents. From a frail little lady when she went in, Mum actually put on weight - fantastic and she was so chuffed! We're happy and relieved that she is in such a good, caring and safe environment, where 'the team' all pitch in to make sure residents have the best care and support available. This is the next best thing to living in her own home. Redwood - NOT a hotel, but a place where she can be herself.

Review of Redwood on Monday 1 July 2013 by Sandra M (Daughter)

Mum was frail, frightened and underweight when she was admitted in January 2013. She is 89 with Vascular Dementia but a living person with a sense of humour. She is now a smiling lady whom has put on weight and adores her carers. We visit most days and can vouch for the level of care and compassion and commitment from carers. We feel welcome and we enjoy the company of other residents and carers. A nice place to be and the right place for her.
