I came for 4 weeks respite and now I want to stay permanently. I was living by myself after losing my wife of 60 years in 2014 and I was not coping. Now I feel safe and well cared for and can live very comfortably with the memories of my wife. All the staff are marvellous and very caring; they make me feel like I get extra special attention.

I liked the way I was called by my first name. This made me feel at home. The staff were friendly, approachable and supportive from the top down. Issues were dealt with immediately with positive outcome. I was included in all the events from being taken outside for a walk along the road to making Easter baskets. I was happy to join the exercises and watching DVD’s on the big screen. I especially liked sitting out in the court yard listening to the water feature and the budgies.
