Reviewer Connection to Willows Mountain Ash
Submitted from a Postal Card by Alun G on Thursday 22 December 2016. Relates to December 2016.
The staff at the willows are brilliant. They have looked after my wife for over 2 years now, and whilst they can't take away the sadness they have removed the worry.
The home is always spotlessly clean, the staff cheerful and friendly and the atmosphere positive.
I can't praise them enough.
