|Family appreciates very much the care given to my husband - often beyond the 'call of duty' and the communication when Dr has called and also the regular visits the Dr makes.
I would recommend Harbourview to anyone.
On coming in the front door leading to the reception area, you immediately notice the welcoming brightness of the reception area and the friendliness of the staff. The whole atmosphere is lovely.
The wide corridors indoors are very user friendly, also the deck outdoors is a great walking area.
Friendly staff, good activities, home away from home.
The level of caring of residents shows Harbourview to be good to live in.
Friendly staff, caring and helpful. The home is in a beautiful setting, lovely view, gardens, very peaceful.
Very helpful and friendly staff each time I visit my Dad I feel so welcomed and everyone makes my visit enjoyable and Dad is so well cared for. Thank you.
