Residential and Dementia care
“With the passing of my father last year, it was a difficult time for all of us. It was important for us to find my mother a good residential home and yours impressed us. It was a relief to bring  down from Yorkshire into your residential care and know she would be well looked after and no longer lonely, Thank you for sending me the photos that you had, it was so lovely seeing the photos of her taking part in the activities. We really want to say thank you for looking after  and giving her happiness in her remaining days.”
