She has settled very well, loves her room which has a great view and they also have really good food. When we go to visit, the staff always acknowledge us and are always very kind to us all. She is very happy there and we are happy at the level of care she is receiving.

Mum is looked after well at the home and we have found the staff to be attentive. She is unfortunately struggling to settle and often get's bored. I don't think this has anything to do with the staff and is more so Mum struggling to adjust. I know that she has been involved in the activities at the home and I will have a chat with the team about what further Mum can do to keep her stimulated.

My father joined the care home as he needed more social activities and stimulation. All the staff took to him straight away and found him things to do which he hadn't enjoyed before, such as gardening.

His health deteriorated and he needed more and more help with eating as he couldn't swallow without coughing. The meals were changed so that they were still appetising and manageable. He would also be pushed into rooms so that he could join in when well enough.

On Armistice Day, Helen the activities organiser took Dad to the local Church so that he could join in The Remembrance Service. A week later Dad contracted pneumonia and received palliative care in the home, which was the best and most professional. Nothing was too much trouble and he died peacefully in his sleep at 98. I would recommend this home in the excellent category for anyone thinking of care for an elderly relative. Everyone is treated as a VIP.

We have all been really happy with the home, and most importantly, my mother in law is happy there. The staff are all friendly and extremely helpful and they give us really good feedback if anything changes with my mother in law which is reassuring.
