Orchard Mews Care Home Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne & Wear
Posted: 9 hours ago by Marion . (Cousin in law of resident.)
The appearance of the home is very welcoming, with a neat garden and entrance area. Once inside it is very obvious that everyone is happy to be there. The members of staff are all cheerful and attentive and the residents appear relaxed and content. The cleanliness of the home is tiptop and I liked the various sets of photographs on the walls displaying the residents enjoying special occasions or outings. Another feature that I like is the fact that each resident has his/her photograph on the bedroom door together with their name, so each is a real individual. The staff are respectful to the residents and are dedicated to their work, and show a real fondness in the care that they give.

Orchard Mews Care Home Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne & Wear
Posted: 9 hours ago by Foster D (Cousin of resident)
I visited my cousin, a resident on July 18th 2014. My instant reaction was to note the cleanliness of the premises, lack of awful smells, not only on the ground floor but throughout. A colourful and well kept garden was a bonus to see and residents would find this joyful to visit and savour. All of the staff I spoke to were friendly, helpful, clean with well maintained uniforms. As well as portraying kindness and care for the residents, in every way a thoroughly good care home.

Freshfields Upminster, London
Posted: 10 hours ago by Jacqueline Cloves (Daughter of resident)
From day one the staff have been very kind, understanding and helpful. Always ready with a cheerful smile and willing to help. Freshfields is not very big, therefore is more homely. We feel (as a family) contented that mum is cared for. We see mum during the week and take her out weekends, but if we can't make it, we do not worry as we know she is ok there.

Westerley Residential Care Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire
Posted: 10 hours ago by Janet McCormick (Daughter of Previous Resident)
My mother stayed at Westerley in the weeks prior to her death. It is difficult to articualte the level of care and support she received during this time. The manager was kind enough to arrange for a wonderful room for my mum with a view that money cannot buy. The staff were exceptional in their care, their interactions and their capacity to recognise and respond to my mother's needs. They went above and beyond what was required simply made my mother's last days wonderful. I cannot thank them enough I will be forever grateful.

Dovecote View Chichester, West Sussex
Posted: 11 hours ago by Colin Clark (Son of resident)
My mother received end of life care here after living at Dovecote for 3 years. The enthusiasm, care of patient and relatives, is second to none. They go the extra mile to help, alert and find out more info to help residents. We were delighted that mum could remain in such a friendly and caring environment until she died.

Mapplewell Manor Barnsley, South Yorkshire
Posted: 11 hours ago by Lynne H (Sister of Resident)
Mappelwell Manor is a fabulous care home, in fact it is like a first class hotel.My sister became a resident in June 2013 as she has Alzhiemers and she couldn't be better looked after. The staff are all amazing and so kind and caring, but also fun. Nothing is too much trouble and family and friends are always made welcome at any time of the day. The whole place is light and airy with gorgeous decor. Today was a seaside day outside buy the fountain and everyone puts so much work into all the entertainment and events.

Barchester Brookfield House Care Lymm, Cheshire
Posted: 11 hours ago by Geoff Homer (Son of Resident)
The first time that my sister went into Brookfield we were immediately taken with the warm friendly atmosphere and facilities and there were no bad smells which you often find. Since mum has been a resident we have forged a great relationship with the staff at the home who are always helpful and willing to listen. Mum's standard of care is excellent and we know she is comfortable and safe. I have since recommended the home to another person who following her visit felt exactly the same.

The Glynne Home Wrexham, Flintshire
Posted: 11 hours ago by Michael R (Husband of Resident)
The atmosphere is family. The staff belong together as a big family and residents (no matter how unlovable!)and their visitors,friends and relations are all included. The food is largely tailor made, my wife needs almost everything to be drinkable or nearly so but still enjoys strong tastes like mint sauce or curry, so although her food is "mush" it tastes and smells good. I have not commented on activities below as my wife is largely incapable of engaging, she doesn't read, watch tv or listen to music.

Barchester Hickathrift House Wisbech, Norfolk
Posted: 12 hours ago by Janice Claxton (Daughter of former Resident)
My mother was only in this home for a short time. The family were always warmly welcomed. My mother was always clean and beautifully dressed whenever we visited. The acre they gave her was with compassion and they were aware of all her needs. We could visit at any time. My mother dies suddenly and unexpectedly and arrangements were carried out with dignity and respect.

Craghall Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne & Wear
Posted: 12 hours ago by Ann P (Daughter of Resident)
A lovely homely feel as soon as you walk in the door. That smell isn't there either. In total I visited 9 care homes when looking to place my mum and Craghall was by far and away the best atmosphere, a real sense of care towards the residents and a fell of coming home. This even extends to the grounds which are beautifully tended.
