We want to express our sincere thanks and appreciation for the loving care given to my mother. It was always a pleasure to visit her and witness the attention to detail and standard of care that was provided to her, and all your residents. We always felt she was getting the best possible care from understanding staff.
I am very happy at Killeline – it’s a home-from-home for me. My family are very pleased with it here too and they are comfortable with me living here. You are never along for too long here because there is always someone popping in to see how you are and for a chat.
