Types of Care provided
“Compassionate, thoughtful, comforting and respectful are just some of the words that describe the wonderful care our mum receives at Eckington Court. At the centre of all their activities and care are the residents, and this was very evident when staff went out of their way to help our family celebrate our mum's 100th Birthday; every detail had been thought of. The personal and emotional support given to our mum is excellent, and it is a great comfort to know our mum is in very safe hands.”
