My parents moved in 6 weeks ago and seem quite pleased with Rubidge. The people are friendly and caring. They have activities for the seniors and meals are looked after. They have their dog with them and that...
The staff at this Home is very nice and careing
Just not what I want for my parents. Had a weird smell, not very pleasing looking and room too small and expensive
