"2 years ago I left a glowing report on this site for this home. Sadly, after some major staff changes things have gone downhill. Mum needed a daily battery change for her cochlear implant. When it wasn't working she was in a "black hole" of silence, which added to her confusion and depression. We were always noticing that her batteries were dead when we visited her, making communication very difficult.
Our many efforts to get staff to address this problem didn't work, they wouldn't even keep a record to show that it was done. The really good activities lady became long term sick, and wasn't replaced for about 6 months. The chart in the hallway showing the daily activities became a joke, showing activities that were not actually happening. The changes must be sad for the many good staff we met during Mum's stay, because things just don't seem the same anymore, and the once happy atmosphere, can feel tense."
