The new manager Maxine and her team are so welcoming Lisa has been a great help in reassuring me and my family Thank you so much for looking after my mum. I have also met the md and rd of the home who are equally approachable Maxine has an open door and I meet with her weekly for updates about mum. I don't feel silly asking any question about mums care. The care staff have been great and always happy and smiling every time I visit. Mum also appears happy and well looked after
