My mother came into Averill House in May 2015 for respite care initially and was made a permanent resident in August 2015. From the very first visit of myself and my husband we were welcomed by all the staff and manager who were informative and sensitive to mums needs. Our family visit daily and have an excellent relationship with all staff. I find the home welcoming, friendly and able to provide the excellent care mum needs. The senior nurses and manager have been supportive with any other professionals dealing with our situation. I cannot recommend Averill House higher and am extremely happy with their services.
