Like many daughters, I wanted to look after my mum at home for as long as possible. As I had no previous experiences with care homes I was dubious about having to admit my mum into a care home. Abbotsleigh was recommended to me and as soon as we were introduced to the manager I knew any fears that I might have had were dispelled instantly. During my mum’s spell as a resident, the care given to her was outstanding by all concerned. All the employees involved with my mum’s care were very kind, considerate and very caring towards my mum, family and friends.
