Review Howard Solomon Residential Estate

Dagmar1188 Mar 17, 2016

To myself and three sisters mum has been everything to us. From best of mothers to our best friend. Really struggled to find ourselves ( after dad dieing ) making such a decision of finding her last place to live as now having Dementia. A big thank you to all the staff at Howard Solomons for making the transition as easy as what it could be for both mum and ourselves. Have never walked in at any time feeling we made the wrong choice. They will bend over backwards to meet our needs, but also notice ( which is so important) people with no family get the same love and treated with dignity and respect. My sisters and I can now sleep easy knowing mum is in a happy and safe environment. A big thank you to all evolved. ( another doctor would be worth considering though, as not very good bed side manner)

I visit on a regular basis and find the staff excellent and very happy, the residents very well cared for and loved by the staff. The quality of care is fabulous and would definitely look at this establishment should my own mother require this type of nursing care. Its a credit to the hard work, and a nice life the elderly are leading....
