My Mother has resided at L'Hermitage since the middle of August 2014 and I can honestly say I have never had cause to complain. I have always found the staff to be extremely helpful, and nothing is too much trouble. They take time to talk to me if I have any questions and they treat my Mother with the utmost respect. The nursing home provides nourishing food and there are many activities to engage the residents. All areas, both inside and out, are kept scrupulously clean and it's always a pleasure to visit. The surrounding area is also conductive to well-being. A real home from home.
