Review of The Grove on Thursday 1 August 2013 by Clare H (Relative of resident)

“I am a relative and highly recommend this care home. The standards of the care home are superb. My relative has come on leaps and bounds since they moved here. They have activities every day or trips out. The range of food is excellent and the cleanliness of the home is outstanding.”


“I’m on top of the world here; I’ve never been so well after looked in all my life”.


‘A big thank you for looking after Jan, you are all lovely people’
