My mother Sarah lived at Downs View for 2 years until she passed away. She had dementia and suffered terribly, however she was cared for amazingly by all the staff and treated with love, dignity and compassion. She always received the very best of everything and I can't praise the staff enough for their kindness.

My mother was a resident for over two years until her recent passing. The staff (all staff -admin/maintenance, manager, carers) treated her with professionalism, dignity, courtesy, understanding and good humour. Their care extended to her family. The care was absolutely outstanding.
