"Staff are lovely and very caring. I cannot speak highly enough of the team at Somerset House. The food quality is excellent. My godmother seems very well cared for and I feel relaxed knowing that she is in good and capable hands."

"I spent many hours in the nursing home and I can see how hard you all work and the individual care and reassurance you give to the residents. It really was a pleasure to have spent the time there whilst Nanny was with you."
