Review of Fernihurst Nursing Home on Friday 11 July 2014 by Jane S (Daughter of resident)

I have been visiting my mother or taking her out most weeks for six years whilst at Fenihurst. Apart from one short period of time when there were management and staff problems, both are back to excellent, attentive care. My mother is in the late stages of Alzheimer’s.
