Don’t take our word for it

Here’s what people say about us

Once retired, I answered a newspaper ad for volunteers at Grove Park Home. Five years later I am still here. I have enjoyed friendly visits, outings, and working in the café. While I enjoy the hours that I spend here, what I find very special is how staff know all the residents by name and always stop to say hello; it is a very personal touch. Volunteering at this Home is very rewarding for me, especially if it makes a difference to the residents and staff. Noella G.
