"My father, aged 88 and alert, joined the home in September 2020 as he had Parkinson's. He had 4 or 5 weeks rehab first, and then decided to stay owing to the good care, excellent meals (he loves breakfast), the room with ensuite, and the modern facilities in a medium sized building. He has now been there 5 months and is happy there in spite of no visits (due to covid travel restrictions etc). Daily visits to the lounge, daily activities (games, visit to the "Pub" etc), but the opportunity to stay in his room if he wishes, has kept him occupied. Carers are lovely and are always jolly and happy to talk on the phone when I ring. Carers work hard to look after him - GP visits once per week, and the home have organised visits from a therapist (to encourage walking) and dietician. No landlines in the rooms, so residents must use their own mobile, or a communal (phone) handset - sometimes I cannot get through or the phone is in use. (Financial) admin is good. Good, all-round care and he is happy!"
