From day one my father was looked after by staff with the greatest of dignity. Nothing was too much trouble. The laundry was presented back in drawers and wardrobe clean and well ironed.
The room was cleaned regularly carpet kept nice and clean. Nothing was too much trouble regarding dietary wise anything asked for was soon presented. The last couple of weeks whilst my father was feeling unwell I was kept very well informed and asked when they thought I needed to be present. Cannot fault the care in any way.
