What our residents are saying…

“The thing about Pickersgill that I can tell you now but couldn’t have told you a year ago because you have to experience it, is that it’s the people who make it so good. They are lovely. And that includes the residents as well as the staff. The people who live here are charming. They greeted me with open arms and guided me into all the right areas. Now, everyone tells me I’m not really a loner—I suppose I have come out of my shell since being here.”
