Making every moment count

“Every single member of your team from the Bistro to the nursing staff were an  absolute pleasure to deal with. Not only did you look after our Mum but you ensured that we were looked after as well. 
I know her first week was very special in that she got to enjoy the bird tables and the occasional squirrel and she was very peaceful in her last week. Thank you so much to each and every one of you for making this devastating time more bearable.”

Everyone who visits us at the Hospice comments about what a bright and friendly place it is: “a home from home”. 

Patients and their families comment on the pleasant environment and how safe they feel.
