Review submitted from a Postal Card by C G (Friend of Resident) on Wednesday 1 June 2016. Relates to May 2016.
I recently visited my friend at the home having been unable to get down for a few months. The home is under new management. The home has undergone a redecoration programme. It now looks fresh and inviting. It is light and bright and has made a big difference. The staff continue to be friendly and approachable. When I arrived my friend had just returned from an outing around the coast. The staff offered me refreshments and as always I found that nothing was too much trouble for them.
