Testimonials
Testimonials
"To the wonderful staff at Windsor house and the great respite care I received" (former staff member)

"Just as an aside your staff are fantastic to work with. I have been into many resthomes/hospitals in my time and I'm very impressed with how they interact with each other, the patients and myself as an outsider. It is much appreciated" (visiting physiotherapist).
