I find the staff extremely caring, always friendly and helpful. They seem to know my mother in law very well and take notice of her wishes. They are prepared to put themselves to a lot of trouble to be helpful.

My mum has been a resident at South Chowdene Care Home for the last two years and has significant care needs. In all that time I have always found the staff to be cheerful, patient and caring. Visitors are made welcome and I can go and see my mum whenever I want. It is a relief to know she is being properly cared for at all times.
