My father was admitted 26th November and it was a long hard journey finding a suitable place. He was really welcomed here and the family too which made his transition nice and smooth. The staff in Lily unit are friendly and helpful and I really believe this is the ideal place for him as he is settling well. Access is really flexible which is great as visiting fits in well with family life.

Not such heavy decorations for Halloween seemed to put some residents in bad moods. Not familiar settings.

May I recommend the management and staff of Alma Court for the love and care they give to my wife who is suffering with end stage dementia and has periods of anger and very challenging behaviour but the patience and devotion to the care of the residents has to be seen to be believed. They not only look after my wife but show care for me. When it was our Golden Wedding Anniversary the home gave a party including a decorated cake. I visit nearly every day and the home is extremely clean and welcoming there is always a smile for me even when my wife is having a difficult time that day.
