R.B, Respite resident, October 2021

General feedback and communication from Silversprings management and nursing has been very good.

Relative of a resident, April 2021

The communication with myself from the homes management and care staff has been brilliant. There is always someone available to speak with me when I telephone, and equally the home has telephoned to inform me of any changes for my mother. The staff are always polite and cheerful when I speak with them. They even facilitated a video call to mum, which was truly appreciated.
