My father lived at Castle Farm for 14-months, having chosen to move into residential care. He welcomed the excellent food, friendly atmosphere, lively activities and well cared for home and gardens. At all times he was made to consider Castle Farm as his home where he was welcome to invite friends for a meal and to visit. Over recent months his health deteriorated, and he had to rely on the excellent care of the staff and the oversight of his medical needs. Although he found his increasing dependence frustrating, high-quality care was maintained throughout. Relatives were always welcomed and any requests considered. Owing to the demands of Covid 19, additional challenges arose, but communication was maintained and contact with residents was a priority. As end of life care became necessary, visits were facilitated for close family and all his needs were attended to with sensitive communication with relatives. We were so grateful that our father was living at Castle Farm.
