  • "Linden House has become my husbands “new home” and all members of staff his “new family”. Every aspect of his “new life” is adapted ensuring he is comfortable, happy and safe. Linden House provides specialist dedicated Dementia care, but it is reassuring to know that they understand that not every Dementia is the same and often comes with other health issues. So a big thank you to everyone - the care you provide is exceptional and I can highly recommend Linden House to anyone seeking a place for their loved one"
