A great big thank you goes out to you all for your kindness, patience, caring and nursing care you gave to our dear sister.


When visiting, there is always a warm family feeling, which I am sure is felt by the residents.


Thank you to all you all for your excellent care of our dear friend. It was so good to know he was in such good hands whilst he was going through such an awful illness.


Can’t fault the staff – absolutely brilliant. The new activities and Kathy the event’s organiser is great. My mum is really happy – Long may it last!

What our families say

‘Thank you’ you all so richly deserve. ..the next day she was almost unrecognisable from the lady the day before – she was beautifully dressed, her hair had been washed and set and there was even evidence of some powder and ‘lippy’. Our first thank you is for all the effort put in during the early days and the difference it made to mum. The second thank you is for the continuation of care you took of mum throughout her time with you, for the company she so much loved even if she remained quiet in the corner, for discovering her hidden sense of humour, your understanding of her needs and for the on-going contentment she felt perhaps for the first time ever in her life – thank you so much!
