"Our mother has been a resident at Drovers Call for five years. Sadly she is now on end of life support. In the time she has been at Drovers, the Manager and her care team have given her care, love and dignity, cared for her every need now she has become bedbound. They treat her with the utmost respect, giving us, her family peace of mind. A very well run care home and brilliant care team."

"I have just moved my father from a care home in Driffield into the Drovers Call at Gainsborough. In the short time that my father has been at the Drovers, he has been shown nothing but kindness and care. I feel that he will continue to enjoy his time spent at the Drovers, for he is well fed and cared for, and is kept entertained throughout the day should he require to join in. Well done The Drovers."

"Entering the home, bright & welcoming reception area. Welcoming, spacious area & lovely garden area. The bedrooms are light & airy with toilet & washing facilities. The meals are good & nourishing, the residents are well cared for. The staff, no matter how busy, are excellent, nothing too much trouble. I’m more than satisfied with my Mums care & support she is receiving. The staff have been very supportive."
