Reviewer Connection to Chilton Meadows Care Home
Review submitted from a Postal Card by Robert A (Son-in-law of Resident) on Wednesday 20 September 2017. Relates to September 2017.
Due to certain health problems, resident was not always easy to deal with and could be stubborn and uncooperative. On my once-weekly visit to the resident, I admired the sensitive and gentle way all staff members dealt with the resident, always showing great caring and patience.
