High Standards of Care
We are proud of our reputation for care – 75% of our business being by word of mouth and feel confident that a random telephone call to the local Social Services or GP surgery would result in a good reference. We are also very proud of our Testimonials File, containing many complimentary letters and cards from relatives. Our Inspections speak for themselves. Copies are available on request. Our inspection reports are accessible via the web site www.cqc.org.uk

Alternatively, several good local practices can be recommended. Residents are allowed alcohol on the approval of their doctor.
