Relative, May 2017

“I have recommended Rowan House to a colleague of mine as the best place in Wales to send a beloved one, after all the care and attention you gave mum, Emma and I, there isn't another residential/nursing home I would ever consider.”

Relative, March 2015

“Thanks to the care of all the staff, we had our mother back for another 15 months. She was very happy there and often joked with the staff – her favourite reply to the question, ‘are you alright?’ ‘No, I’m half left.’ Would recommend without hesitation.”

Relative, July 2015

“Many thanks for the care and kindness shown to our Dad during the past and last year with his family. We know he was well cared for and until recently, happy to be there with you. Now we hope that he is happily reunited with his sweetheart and parents. It is what he wanted, thank you.”
