    I have been reading in newspapers as well on the news about the lack of care in rest homes, but nothing is reported about the good care offered in many very well run homes, my wife has been in care for 2year now and the care, as well as love, given to her by the excellent staff help me to handle the fact that she is there because I can not look after her myself this is something that troubles me every day but knowing that the care is there does help .

    MaryLynns66, I would like to know if you ahve seen any change in the staff since the changes to their pay scale. It seems to me that the staff were very dedicated before the changes came about and it is nice that they received that lift. I wondered if it made a difference in the work settings.

    My wife has been in Mary Shapleys now for 2 and a half years I have always found the staff to be very caring and friendly always with a smile, there is always laughter in the recreation lounge with great entertainment, movie evenings are something that the residents enjoy with chips and even an ice cream is served up to make the evening complete .this all run by the staff and management so yes the staff are still very dedicated to there task .
