“…The care staff are dedicated and friendly, ready to give families their time and answer queries, meeting the comprehensive care plans of our loved ones. I love the “homely” atmosphere and of course the location is huge hit with our family. Having had many walks and picnics in the extensive parklands nearby and around the facility.”
