The nursing unit is staffed by dedicated nurses and carers, who treat the residents with love, humour and above all dignity. I have witnessed staff buying little things for residents out of their own pockets. On another occasion a member of staff volunteered to come to work unpaid to ensure my partner got her shower as there were staff shortages. I would recommend and have done this care home to any prospective residents.

I am always treated well. I have a lot of new friends and if I need anything someone will get it for me. I also really like the food.
