M B (Daughter of Resident)

For the four years since my mother came to live at Lily House, I and the family have found all staff has been more than helpful and kind in the care of my mother. Nothing has been too much trouble. Mother has had her ups and downs but has always been treated wonderfully.

Karen M (Daughter of Resident)

We took my mum to Lily House a week before lockdown and the relief of knowing how well she is being looked after is immense. We talk to her on the phone every day and she is very happy and loves all the carers. They make her feel special and take great care of her. We can’t thank them enough for all their efforts. Looking forward to seeing her again soon but in the meantime thank you so much.

Stephanie W (Daughter of Resident)

My mother recently admitted to Lily House she received a very warm welcome and has settled in very well. The staff are very friendly and mum appears happy and well cared for.
