Mum is cared for with the utmost respect and dignity. She has settled very well, only being here for five months. She enjoys the food, and if she doesn't fancy anything on the menu, a substitute is always made for her. As her daughter, I can relax more knowing she is cared for so well. The staff always have time for me as well. Ann F (Daughter of Resident)
