My relative went into the above care home in May 2015. I have experienced no problems with the care from the staff employed in this care home. I am really happy with this establishment and their commitment to the residents. It is always difficult to make a care decision for a relative but I feel my choice of home has made this change a lifestyle for my mother more easier to take.
