My Grandma went into the Red House for a weeks respite care, which turned into 4 weeks care. The care she received was amazing, the staff couldn't do enough for her and always had time to chat without the feeling that they were having to rush on to the next person. The food was amazing, she had lost quite a lot of weight in the last year, and now, after a months decent food, her clothes fit her again! She looks and feels so much better than she has done in months, and that's down to the care, support and love of the Red House staff.

She had a lovely en-suite room, which was cleaned every day and was free to come and go as she wished, there is a large spacious dining room/lounge which they use for activities, visits, TV, music and socialising as well as eating.

Although she was keen to go home, she will miss everyone a lot! Thank you!!

We have been treated with nothing but kindness and courtesy from our first inspection visit. Nothing has been hidden. My mother's admission was expected and she received a place within a matter of days. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Red House for residential/nursing and care.
