My Dad stayed at Sowerby House for a weeks respite to give my Mum a break. He found it quite hard to adjust as he's living with Dementia but this had nothing to do with the home or the care provided. The staff were very accommodating and arranged the required bed for him as well as setting up his TV which he brought from home. My Mum went for lunch one day and was made welcome to come again whenever she wanted. She didn't have to pay for lunch but would have liked to as the food was very nice. We are going to arrange for Dad to stay again in the future and would recommend the home to others.

I cannot praise the home enough, and we are so thankful for all that they have done to help us and my mother in law. We have had some really serious problems with the hospital and how my mother in law was looked after, but the home have gone over and above to repair all the damage that was done and get her back to herself. This is the best we have seen her in a long time and we are overjoyed with all the home has done. Thank you.

The family have all commented on how well my mother in law is now doing at the home. She was in another home near by, but did not receive the level of support that we would have liked. Since we have moved her to Sowerby House, we have seen a good improvement in her day to day, and we are all much relieved.
