" Right from the beginning, I was happy with the atmosphere at Sovereign Court and the attitude of the staff, both towards us as a family and in the way they related to my husband and the other residents. He is settled and happy and the staff are a massive part of that. When there have been any issues they have always been quickly resolved and the staff have involved me in finding the solutions. I am very pleased that I chose Sovereign Court to provide the care for my husband. He has been there for 2 years and things have worked out better than I could ever have imagined. "
