Reviewer Connection to The Chanters Care Home
Submitted from a Website Submission by Elizabeth S on Saturday 31 October 2015. Relates to October 2015.
My Mother has been a resident for nearly 9 years. It is very much a family atmosphere and the staff are very caring and supportive to both the residents and their families. Indeed many of the staff have worked there a long time. They have lots of activities both as a group and one to one if the resident doesn't feel like joining in.
I have no complaints whatsoever.
