“They have discussed and raised any issues with me the moment they have occurred; for example, that he doesn’t like to bath, they let me know the moment they had managed this”

Mr C K, Relative of a resident, November 2019

Their care is very good and they are attentive. They try the best they can to make it more comfortable and friendly for the residents. The carers are very responsive to the people who are visiting. There is nobody who is not good.
