“Our Mum has been living in Paddock Stile Manor since January 2019. She is very happy there, and the care and attention she has received have been wonderful, especially through the very testing times we are living through with Covid 19. All staff, whether working in the office, kitchen, cleaning or the amazing care workers are so friendly and helpful.” Daughter of Resident, August 2020 source:
