Reviewer Connection to Florence Grogan House
Review submitted from a Postal Card by N S (Friend of Resident) on Tuesday 10 May 2016. Relates to April 2016.
The review of the "Florence Grogan House" facility is taken from almost daily visits from 1st February 2016 to April 2016. My main feedback has to do to with the staff employed at his facility. From the management to the carers, kitchen staff, cleaners, laundry, personal, the complete people operation has to be assessed as first class. The emphasis is on "care" and understanding of the residents and support for relatives and friends. There are many extremely experienced staff with many years supporting valuable people. Consideration has to be given to the very difficult physical and mental pressures accepted by all staff. 10/10.
