My father is a resident at St Katharine’s Care Home and has been here for approx 6 months. Since he has been here I have found that he has been looked after very well, he seems to be very comfortable and settled here. When myself and my Mum come to visit Dad we find the staff here very helpful and very attentive to my Dad’s needs. Geoffrey L

Mum residing in St Katharine’s House nursing unit. The staff are very kind to her and they do things to help her and nothing is too much trouble and some even go the extra mile to please mum. Mum is not an easy person to be pleased but somehow some of the staff can make mum happy and shows some twinkle in her eyes, love the lavender scent that they provide for mum. Jannett H

I find that the care my partner is receiving is good care and she is better than she has been for a long time. Andrew F
