Comments from our residents and their family and friends

What a fantastic place. The staff really care and go out of their way to make the residents comfortable and go the extra mile in keeping relatives informed. I really can’t thank the staff and the manager enough. We all go on a guilt trip when our loved ones can’t look after themselves and their needs are too complex to be looked after by the family. I spent some time in assessing care homes before making the decision to go with St Mark's Court and I have to say it was one of my best decisions

Communication from the team is excellent. We are kept informed about our loved one, and can visit freely, which gives us reassurance
