Very well-managed staff, excellent, very helpful. Since moving into Silk Court my cousin is a completely different man. He is a lot more talkative, happy and content. It is the best thing that could have happened to him. The ratings show how I feel.

My mother-in-law has been in Silk Court since March and we were so worried about moving her in there but within a few weeks it was obvious it was the right decision for her, she has friends and we feel she is safe and she is really well looked after. The staff have been amazing I don’t know all their names yet but there are two ladies who always se… em to be there when we visit and they are just so friendly and reassuring all the time.

Excellent security access and exit. Home very clean and tidy. Hygiene of residents very good. Found staff to be very friendly and engaging with the residents and also the visitors. Found staff very friendly and informative upon questions asked by myself. A very relaxing and spacious garden, if the weather is fine. Most importantly to me, my auntie … seems to be happy and content and well looked after, even though I know she can be a bit trying at times and cannot always be understood at times. This doesn’t seem to be a problem to the staff.
