We also want to thank you for the warm welcome that we always received." Family of Resident

"I would like to take this opportunity to express our very sincere thanks to every single member of staff at Montrose and not just for the wonderful cake & present you gave to Mum for her birthday, but for the years of love, care and genuine affection you all bestow upon her every day.

"We wanted to thank you all for the wonderful care you gave to Dad over the past two years. You provided him with a real home-from-home, and gave us peace of mind that he was being well looked after.
