My mother and father went to live at Amberwood soon after it opened in 2006. My father died there in 2008 and my mother has just died there in July 2014. The loving, compassionate care they both received at Amberwood was exemplary. The staff were always kind - nursing staff, activity co-ordinators, restaurant staff and housekeeping staff were always caring to my parents as residents and to myself when visiting.
