Absolutely superb service caring for my parents, in particular my mother who was dying of cancer, but also my stepfather as her main carer.
The service was provided at Beaumond House and in their home, and they also worked closely with the GP, and other local services such as pharmacists and the Red Cross to provide joined up care. They provided kind and attentive care, plenty of information, good quality food and other services. The accommodation at Beaumond House was always spotless and all the staff, including nurses, receptionist and domestic staff were excellent. Outreach staff were also extremely kind and helpful.
