Annette G (Daughter of Resident) - Overall Experience: 5.0 out of 5
"My father received exceptional care, love, and affection at Derbyshire House. He was a resident for two and a half years, always treated with dignity and respect. Initially, he was bright and able but with medical needs that couldn’t be met at home. The staff ensured he was stimulated and entertained, truly enhancing his quality of life."
