Review of Bridge View

The home is a perfect location for my mum who has lived in Stakeford all her life. It provides a welcoming and friendly atmosphere and relatives/visitors are encouraged to make use of the facilities. The administrator and manager are always accessible to address questions/ suggestions/concerns. Care staff are excellent and have gone out of their way to make mum feel welcome, comfortable and at home.

I cannot praise the staff enough at this care home. My mother in law came into this establishment after many hospital visits. From day one the staff were very eager to help her and us in anyway they could. It is very clean and there are many activities for the residents to take part in. In my opinion the level of care is second to none and I would recommend this care home to anyone.
