It is by far the best Care Home in the area that I have seen and indeed on visiting first I said that I wouldn't mind coming there myself if I was ever to need residential care! My mother has been made extremely welcome by the kind and caring staff and is gradually accepting that her mobility is not good enough to return home. The home is in a beautiful position right on Aberavon seafront and it is easy to take my mother in a wheelchair out to the promenade. My mother's only grumble is that there could be a greater variety of food with larger meat portions but I imagine that budgetary constraints are a factor here.
