After a long search we were delighted to have found person-centred, genuine care for mum. Each person is treated with dignity, kind words and quick responses. The staff are there for the residents and even share mealtimes so there is truly a sense of family yet it is all still professional. Staff are service focused and treasure the residents. The team share news and information and sincerely care. I am so thankful knowing mum is in the best hands.
