A very professional service. Met the Manager to discuss dad's health and requirements. During care period dads requirements changed due to a fall and hospital admission. The Manager kept in touch with me during my absence and was the contact for the hospital. On dads discharge extra care had to be provided and she and staff managed this very effectively. The staff adapted their care to Dad's requirements and whims. Fantastic care.
