Our staff and management work hard to ensure that we deliver the best possible care for your loved one.  Sometimes it is easy for relatives to forget just how hard our staff work and what difficult tasks they perform. There is often negative press about care homes, but those who use them know that a valuable service is being carried out each and every day.

If you are pleased with our standards of care, or if you see something that deserves a special mention, please let the manager know or write to us.  We celebrate all feedback, and it makes our staff proud.

"Just to say what an enjoyable time I had at the Summer BBQ at Hartley House this afternoon, a great bonus to have the sunshine too!  Everyone had obviously worked very hard to make the afternoon such a success.  It was good to see so many people attend"
