Take a look at this lovely review from Cecelia Butters who said:
“Beautiful home with wonderful caring staff well led by the home manager who is a qualified nurse. Made my father-in-law’s last days the best he’d had for a long time. They took him to the cinema when he’d not been out for 2 years. Thank you.”
Thank you for the wonderful review!
