Review of Highfield House Care Home

When I was told by the hospital mum had to go into a care home it was where do I start. My husband and myself went round various care homes. Then we got a call from my mother's social worker to see Highfield House and look round it. We were met by Gill Dyson, she was very friendly, the care home was very clean, it was very clean, it was excellent and did not smell of 'wee'. My mother went in on the 9th September and really liking it. Keep up the good work.
