"When I met Alison, I was keen to find the right people to operate the home. We are local and it mattered a great deal who we worked with. Alison was professional, knowledgeable and importantly, kept her word. She understood exactly what we were looking for and was able to advise us every step of the way. I am looking forward to working with her again, should the opportunity arise."

Mr G Shaw, Delphine Court
