All Staff are a credit to St. Mary’s.
My mother has been a resident of St Marys care home for over 3yrs. It’s very difficult when loved ones needs 24hr care. My mother is well looked after, she has care, kindness and consideration shown to her every day. St Mary’s staff are professional and very caring. I and my family are happy that mum is living in such a caring, secure environment we are very pleased we chose St Marys for mum.
The home quite good, the food excellent also the carers are excellent.
