Efficiency, care and attention has vastly improved over the past year. The appointment of the C.E.O and the new home management team has been instrumental in regarding the home as the 'Flagship' of the area. The complete refurbishment has also added to the ambience, and cosmetic appeal of this purpose built establishment. Further improvements are in hand including restaurant facilities. Updated menus, recruitment and training. I am personally highly satisfied with standards of care received by my wife.

When I thought of a holiday in 2016 I thought of a week in the Hebrides of Scotland but to be 90 years of age difficulty keeping up with the group, so thought of a respite for two weeks here and was immediately very impressed with everything. It became a difficult decision to decide permanent resident but to be a deserter of another home home did not appeal to me but if there should be a long waiting period I could come back here until there would be a place for me at the other home.

The building and ambiance is 5 star. I required a place in a nursing home in order to stay for a short while after being in hospital before they could discharge me as I live alone. My son enquired of several suitable ones (it was New Year). This was the one that showed most interest over the telephone. Since my arrival I have been treated with the utmost respect and care by every member of staff. The food is very light and fresh and if the bell is rung it has been answered promptly and my request - usually for a pot of tea answered promptly. I would most certainly return.
