Mum moved into Darwin House during January 2016. She had previously been invited to spend two weeks at Darwin as a ‘practice run’. She has an excellent room with en-suite facilities. Wonderful hospitality, friendly, helpful and wonderful meals. Darwin House has given our family tremendous peace of mind, knowing she is well cared for in every aspect. Mum is the happiest she has been in years!
