I was worried when mum had to go into a care home due to deterioration in her dementia. I had my reservations as there is a lack of basic care for dementia in all areas of health service and the community. I dreaded the moment but her room is nice and clean. There is no smell in the care home that you usually get and its not run down the kitchen is also hygienic and meals are good, taking into account what she can eat which they adhered to. The staff are very friendly and professional. We've had our questions and concerns which is natural and have been reassured. They are so caring towards mum. Making sure all her needs are met. I would dare not believe it but she is safe, clean and looked after which makes all the difference. Although when the time came when she needed 24 hr residential care it was a big impact, also on the family to which they have been very understanding too. Mum has been here for 5 yrs.
