The staff are kind, friendly and always helpful. I find the staff are always willing to help with any problems which occur eg. accompanying my mother to hospital, calling the doctor whenever necessary, letting me know if she has any problems.

My review covers 12 years. Initially, I was attracted to the home because of the cleanliness in the building and the friendly atmosphere. During my frequent visits over the years, both of these attributes remain.
I am encouraged to treat the home as my husband's second family home and he is a member of that family. The staff work extremely hard to look after the residents who all suffer with different forms of dementia. Their work is far from easy and yet they manage to smile despite the difficulties that they face day in day out.
