Food at this facility is cold or lukewarm (soup) very disappointing according to resident. Staff nor to be seen. Rooms very unappealing - dark, aged bathroom, old and marks on walls in section where my friend is. This was in building on the right, unable to comment on the left handside of the building. Recently called 3 times and left messages, was not contacted. Luckily family member is now in a different facility where is very happy.

The staff were very caring and reactive to my mothers needs. She was treated with respect and dignity even though she became unresponsive and uncommunicative. They were always patient and positive in their attitude towards her - although at times her condition made it very difficult for all of us. They took time and effort to communicate her problems. They kept me informed of any change in her condition and rang when her condition became progressively precarious. The facility didn't have any offensive odour unlike some I've visited. It was well maintained both externally and internally and always clean and fresh. The only criticism was the food did not appear very appetising or appealing - but that may have been due to the condition from which she suffered.
