Very good rest home on the whole but did not cope with high care needs.

The current buildings are old but very well maintained, clean and homely. However as if 17th October the residents will be moving into brand new 2-storey facilities in Church Road, Taigum. My mum is in the dementia care unit and will be situated on the ground floor with care organised into small groups of about 7 self contained rooms with ensuites with their own common area with a patio and garden outlook. She is extremely happy and should continue to be so if she is still provided with the same warm and caring environment she has enjoyed thus far.
