    Excellent staff and really caring. My father-in-law moved in for respite care but as everything was good for him he did not want to go back to his own house. He said the food was very tasty and was it cooked on the premises. There is a lovely back garden to sit in and parking space in front for visitors. As well as a spacious dining area there is a Lounge to where we took his favourite chair from his house. Entertainment is arranged and social games and quizzes are held regularly. They could not have done any more for him.
