My mother has been a resident of Bank House since January 2013, since moving into Bank House. Although her dementia has worsened, her general health has improved, she appears to be as happy as possible, she is cared for, kept clean and looked after, the food is of an excellent standard and plenty of it. The rooms are clean and there are no unpleasant odours. The home itself is slightly dated but that fact is far outweighed by the standard of love and care the residents receive. My brothers and I would have no hesitation in recommending Bank house for your loved ones.
