Comments about The Russets & Sherwood

My mother moved to The Russets when it was only 20% occupied - at 96 she was their oldest resident. It was an immense relief to place her in such an amazing place - somewhere that her sister-in-law, who had worked in the NHS and then private care homes all her working life, was totally gobsmacked about when we went to view the place. It is somewhere that, despite her complex dementia, Mum was happy in for the rest of her life. Thanks go to North Somerset for supporting St Monica and persuading us to go and see The Russets, and to St Monica Trust for involving relatives in supporting the staff and management from Day 1.07/10/2013Peter (relative of someone who lives/lived here)reply
