Well I find this difficult to write baring in mind it is less than 12 hours since my dad Colin Whitcombe passed away, but I couldn't wait any longer to praise this fabulous care home and every one of their staff. My dad was suffering with vascular dementia , he moved to Addison court in April 2013. This care home is fantastic and I speak for all of my family on this, the level of care and love was superb and my dad, bless him, loved all of the staff, they all seemed to love him like he was their dad. At the end he went downhill pretty quickly, and passed away this morning which in the end was a god send... The staff (and that is everyone who works there) are angels... I thank you all for your care and help you gave my dad, hope to god this never happens to me but if it did I'd love to spend my dying days at Addison court, god bless you all xxx
