I cannot praise the professionalism of staff and management at Drake House enough. The 24 hr care was second to none when looking after my father during his time as a resident up until his passing, ensuring his dignity through to the very end. Carers do what there name suggests, nothing is too much, they even find the time to assist visiting families and friends with information or even with a simple cup of tea. Thanks on behalf of our family.
