Brilliant care was taken of my mother for the whole of her 2-year stay in the home, but in particular towards the end. Staff were fantastic from the top to the bottom. Friendly, welcoming, helpful, fun and caring both to my mother and to us, her family. Nothing was too much trouble. Lovely room and pleasant surroundings, very high standard of care all around.
