  • Complex physical disabilities

I like being at Wharfedale because it's so accessible for Wetherby and the shops and market on a Thursday. The home is situated in such a lovely area and the gardens are so great to sit in and the view of the river is lovely. All the staff are so great and very approachable, I have been here nearly a year now and I still love it especially when we have parties and day trips.
