Review of Amherst Court

Lovely, warm and caring establishment. My family and I are secure in the knowledge that our Dad is being well cared for and is completely safe. Amherst Court involve the residents in many activities and is extremely open and welcoming to family and visitors. I cannot recommend Amherst Court highly enough. Last Christmas was our first experience here and the day was made very special by all the staff.
