" My mother has been a resident of The Old Prebendal House for 6 years now. I have been delighted with the care that she has received. All the staff are so pleasant, polite and helpful. They are very understanding of my mother's needs and difficulties. It is always a pleasure to deal with them. My mother is very contented and happy. I have no hesitation in recommending. "

Rosemary D (Daughter of Resident)

" My Mother was a resident at TOPH for a short time after a lengthy stay in hospital. From the start, the Manager made us all feel very welcome. She visited my Mum in hospital to do an assessment and told us she would be delighted to welcome Mum as a guest at TOPH. From the day she arrived, the care she received was excellent - nursing, support and maintenance who couldn't have done any more to make the room nicer. "
