Marjorie Condacos, Regional Managing Director for Four Seasons Health Care, who run the home, said: "All the care team are delighted that in this independent national survey the residents at Ladyville Lodge rated the home so highly.
"The survey outcome corresponds with the responses we have had directly from residents, their relatives and care professionals who are able to give us instant feedback on a day to day basis about any aspect of care quality, by using iPads placed in the home with a touch-screen questionnaire linked to purpose designed software. This has been recording a 97% overall customer satisfaction rating.”
