Everyone is friendly and helpful at this nursing/care home. The atmosphere is very pleasant and cheerful and my mother has been well looked after here. The food and service are very good with lots of activities for the residents who enjoy more action. The cafe is lovely to pop into.

Kingfishers

My husband John was at Kingfishers for 4 years and received excellent care. I visited him every day and felt that in that time the staff and residents became part of my family. Rebecca, the matron, always had time to listen to any concerns I had. Many times during the night or early morning I would go and visit John and I always felt welcome. I still visit Kingfishers although my husband has sadly passed away. I think Kingfishers is the best and would certainly recommend them.

Very bright, modern, clean building. Excellent staff at all levels. Daily activities and trips out. Nothing is too much trouble by the staff. Very smart and colourful gardens all year round. Food is top class. Mother has been a resident there for the 5 years it has now been open and if I could afford it I wouldn't hesitate to move in there as well !
