Reviewer Connection to Ashcroft Care Home
Submitted from a Website Submission by Sarah C on Sunday 1 November 2015. Relates to October 2015.
My Mum was transferred here for the last week of her life; Dad and I are so grateful for the wonderful care provided. Staff were kind and thoughtful, taking every care to ensure that Mum was comfortable and content. The care home is a friendly and positive place even though we were there at a very difficult time. I was reassured that there seems to be a great culture of care within the team; everyone we met was willing to go out of their way to help and offer support to us as well as Mum.
