My mother has received excellent care from all the staff at Delph House, from the first time she came into contact with them at her initial assessment, to now nearly 6 months on. Everyone I have come into contact with has been friendly, professional and willing to do everything in their power to ensure that my mother has settled in well. The staff are kind, compassionate and respectful to mum and very welcoming to the whole family. The house is always clean and the food is plentiful and delicious. A wide range of activities are organised and geared to the needs of the residents. It took my mother a few weeks to settle into her new environment but now she loves her new home and appears very happy and settled.” –Dianne G (Daughter of Resident)
