Retirement Homes for my mother

Hi everyone - so I’ve finally hit that time in life when you wake up one morning and realise that you’ve got to start the process of reviewing retirement homes for one's mother.

I’ve put it off and put it off - mainly out of deep respect for my mother’s autonomy and sense of independence - and her wonderful intelligence and sense of humour - but she has now asked for help in finding somewhere that is suitable. It's an emotional rollercoaster and a practical nightmare - and I subsequently need some help from the Silversurfer community who are undoubtedly very well informed in these matters.

Obviously, my mother, my sister and I are doing all the background work - and visiting various places with my mother but frankly, nothing beats people’s personal views and first hand experiences.

So the question is has anyone got first hand experience of the Platinum Skies residential development in Salisbury called Chapters?

I would be hugely indebted to anyone who could give me their views - good or bad - and very grateful for their time.
