A Resident’s View
“When the doctor said that I couldn’t have any stronger medication at home, I decided to move in to Snug Village. It’s all lovely, the food, the different kinds of entertainment and the accommodation. They can’t be helpful enough here, all the staff are kind and friendly.”
– Jennie, Resident
