“It has been a pleasure being associated with Lyndale, the staff are superb-welcoming cheerful, while providing such personal care”. Elizabeth, daughter of a Resident

“Mum loves the friendly, caring and generous staff, nothing is too much trouble for them.” Resident’s daughter

“My greatest relief and certainty surrounding my mother and her long-term stay at Lyndale Villa is the reliable care and professional concern of staff, and the natural friendships woven among the other residents. Throughout the day, they sustain and uplift Mum, in the place she calls home
