I would like to express my sincere thanks to the nursing team, especially Karen, Louise and Rose, for all the care and attention given to my mother through out her three year stay with you. Sadly my mother slipped away peacefully in November 2013. It was of great comfort to all my family to see the excellent end of life care given to my mother. This helped to make a difficult situation more tolerable.

Since having a heart attack and stroke in November 2012 my father now also suffers from Vascular Dementia. He has been attending the Risings for day care three days a week since January 2013. He is very happy going and enjoys his time there. The management and staff have been extremely helpful and I know he is looked after well and that his medication will be administered when needed. I have peace of mind knowing that he is in good hands in this friendly environment. He also enjoys his meals at dinner and tea times.
