The care my father has received at Fordingbridge Care Home has been fantastic. Always welcomed by friendly staff who have shown great knowledge and care towards him. They have always got him all the help he has needed and kept us regularly updated with how he is. I feel very confident in his care at this home, it has a warm and friendly atmosphere and the staff and residents always appear happy when I am visiting.
