Dear Brien,
My recent experience in Kensington was excellent care given to my mother, the staff were helpful and friendly towards my mother and my family this was greatly appreciated at the time of need.
The activities programme gave residents choices, the exercise circuit is something individual and fine dining by invitation is involving residents and families.
The nurse kept me informed of any concerns and the healthcare assistant attention to detail meeting my mothers care needs you could not fault, a credit to Jane Morgan Manager and her team of staff.
