Reviewer Connection to Swallow Wood Care Home
Submitted from a Website Submission by Martin E on Thursday 6 October 2016. Relates to October 2016.
My mother had spent 5 weeks in this home. The care she received was beyond anything we could have hoped for. The staff were so caring and loving, they brought dignity to my mams last weeks and a smile to her face, something that had been missing for a long time. Mam suffered from Vascular Dementia which can be very demanding to care for but nothing was too much. Myself and my brother can never thank them enough. Bless you all.
