“Due to serious health issues, my elderly mother had to take up residence in Whitby House. She was obviously very concerned and anxious at having to accept a new way of life. The staff here are absolutely amazing and from the very start, they have offered unconditional support, reassurance, patience and compassion which has helped not only my Mum but also her family considerably. The home has a very welcoming atmosphere and there’s a ‘buzz’ about the place which brings it to life and makes towards very comfortable surroundings. The food is excellent and freshly cooked. There’s always a good choice. All dietary needs can be met. Rooms are of a decent size, kept clean with regular changes of bedding and towels. The many varied week day activities are suited to all capabilities and residents are encouraged, though not pressurised, to participate. Mum is very precious to our family and we are greatly comforted and reassured that she is in such a caring and happy environment.”
