My Nana was a resident at Amberwood for a while. She needed special treatment and also had dementia. Everything about Amberwood is wonderful. From the staff to the facilities to the area. she was a very proud lady who was very fussy about her appearance and surroundings and they respected that and helped wherever they can. I would highly recommend this place and if u eve need to go into a home, I would love this to be the one!!!
