How Likely are the Reviewers to Recommend Cranford Care Centre?
Reviewer Connection to Cranford Care Centre
Review submitted from a Website Submission by Pamela M (Daughter of Resident/Service User) on Wednesday 31 August 2016. Review relates to August 2016.
My sister and I dropped in at Cranford Care Centre without an appointment and were welcomed with warmth, respect and kindness. We were shown around the home and facilities. The lady who showed us around made sure that we were able to see all aspects of the home and she answered all of our questions with openness. She explained the process regarding admission to the home and immediately made us feel that relatives were welcome and encouraged to be part of the care home family.
I am unable to comment personally on the care in the home, but I wanted to comment on the aspects that I did observe on our visit such as cleanliness which is very good and especially the immediate impression that we were made welcome as visitors and that the questions answered and involvement regarding relatives was part of the homes ethos.
