"Mother, now a centenarian, who had lived independently until 98, found the initial transition from independence to being part of a cared for environment a shock. However, the staff's attitude to her, made her realise that it was a sensible decision and move, at her then 98 years of age. We as a family have no doubts that our choice of home was correct nearly 3 years ago and remains so today. The choices in the boxes below indicate our judgement of Newlands. Having not had Mother in any other such home we cannot judge against other establishments but can draw from the experience of occasional visits to other homes over the years. Good selection indicates what we would like to achieve if she was with us, the excellent selections to reflect our views on Newlands. Family and friends who occasionally travel to visit Mother all remark on the excellence of the staff and cleanliness. Value, a motive subject for any family which has to pay, government policy dictates."
