“ My husband has been a resident in Our Mother of Mercy for the past five years and I honestly couldn’t speak more highly of the home. The standard of care is excellent, the staff are wonderful, the home itself is safe and secure. I just don’t think you would get this level of care in any other home in Northern Ireland. My husband is very happy and settled here and its because of the staff, it makes it so much easier for me to be able to be content with the situation.”
