Review of Windsor Street Care Centre on Wednesday 9 April 2014 by Fiona (Relative)

After spending many weeks in hospital, my dear Dad moved into Windsor Street. Very sadly he passed away after only a week of being in their care, but that week was his most dignified, content and happy for a long time. We cannot praise the staff highly enough or indeed thank them enough for their support during his stay. They showed him respect, were attentive to his needs and made him laugh and smile, this memory we will keep forever. Thank you everyone and keep up the good work. We would not hesitate to highly recommend you.
