What our clients say

"A sincere thanks for all you have done for my wife and myself. You have a dedicated team who are completely devoted to those they serve. There is a 'warmth' care friendliness as soon as you enter the building. I have been constantly impressed by the variety of activities which cater for the sensitive and the 'outgoing'. My wife has never been a 'sporty', competitive person and I was amazed to see the joy on her face, catching and throwing a ball. I have always felt relaxed and welcomed; my wife and I will miss you all." 

~ Mr H (Plymouth) to Age UK Plymouth Dementia Centre
