Frethey House Care Home with Nursing

The warmth that we felt from the Management to the Laundry Assistants from the first moment we approached Frethey to care for my dad will not be forgotten. Susan Flowers was exceptional and dealt with my Mother with great empathy when she visited my very poorly father she always put my Mother's mind at rest. The Care Assistants Donna and Kath especially were wonderful also nurses Kath and Ester. My Dad couldn't have been cared for better in his dying days.
