Wonderful care, couldn't have been better.
I would recommend this excellent care home to anyone who has family that need to be looked after by caring understanding professional then this is the place. My mother was failing in her health and we looked all over Coventry for a place where she would be stress pain free and comfortable this place was perfect. We talked to Kerry and her staff and were very happy. Mum passed away there and we were treated with great respect.
The staff are always polite and helpful and keen to do their best. My mother-in-law is always spotless and her room is always immaculate. Both my wife and myself are very happy with the level of care provided.
