Review of TOR Christian Nursing Home

My husband has been in the Tor for one year. He has Parkinson's with dementia. I was unable to care for him after I fell and broke my hip. I have found this care home excellent in every way. The nursing staff and the care assistants are kindly efficient and delightful. I find it easy to talk to any member of staff and any issue is addressed immediately. The gardens are beautiful and soon there will be a new area where residents will be able to move from the bistro/café straight into the garden. There is a wide range of activities and residents are encouraged to go on outings if they want. I have no hesitation in commending this care home.
