Tarry's Herne Bay, Kent
Posted: 22 hours ago by Sue Clark (Relative of care home resident)
I can't recommend this home highly enough. My mother suffered from Dementia & when she started hitting out at my father, her career's & myself, it was decided that she needed residential care & luckily Tarry's had a bed available. The staff were absolutely brilliant with mum & for the first time in years, I didn't have to worry about her & could concentrate on looking after my father. Unfortuately, mum passed away recently but right up until the end I was encouraged to visit or phone whenever I liked & I was always welcomed with a friendly smile & a cup of tea!!

Barchester Queens Court Care Home London
Posted: 23 hours ago by Sandra S (Visitor to The Home)
Today (25th June 2014) I attended on afternoon programme called engaging with dementia. It was the first time I had visited this care home. I was most taken with what I saw, from the welcome speech given by Sharon Cantella, and of course the speakers, but the warm welcome by all the staff that I met, The cleanliness comfort and the whole atmosphere. On seeing the menu for lunch and dinner, which was modern and sounded delicious. I felt it was like a hotel and everyone will to please.

Defoe Court Care Home Newton Aycliffe, Durham
Posted: 20 Jul 2014 by Denise Watson (Daughter of resident)
Following a hospital stay, my father went into Defoe with advanced dementia for end of life care. My father's passing was dignified and peaceful, surrounded by his loved ones. The staff gave us time and space at the end to say our goodbyes without any intrusion and we will always be grateful for this. Defoe is a warm and welcoming home where the staff treated all the other dementia residents with thoughtfulness and respect, we were encouraged to visit any time of the day or evening and to give feedback on my father's care, or needs, to managers. I would recommend Defoe to any family whose loved one is in need of care.

Gillingham Grange Gillingham, Dorset
Posted: 20 Jul 2014 by Alison de Grassi (Daughter of former resident)
My father was at Gillingham Grange for six months until he passed away on June 18, 2014. Throughout his six month stay there, his care was exemplary and he was treated with genuine affection the entire time. Dad was always comfortable, clean and groomed, and was always treated with dignity and respect. The home is spotless and the residents engaged and very well looked after. The manager is an inspirational leader who genuinely cares for both residents and staff. My mother and brother could not have asked for a better place for her life partner and our father. I highly recommend Gillingham Grange.

Haddon House Care Home Ilkeston, Derbyshire
Posted: 20 Jul 2014 by Clair Franks (relative of former resident)
The care team at Haddon House provided wonderful care for my father during the last weeks of his life. He only lived there for a short time but every effort was made to get to know him and meet his increasing needs. This home is not grand or smart but it has a real heart. All the staff were kind, friendly and helpful and made family & friends feel welcome at whatever time we visited. Dad was cared for with love and respect and Nursing staff were approachable, professional and vigilant, keeping us fully informed of any changes or concerns. GP was called promptly. The atmosphere is busy but calm with plenty of chuckles and a genuine acceptance of individuals for who they are no matter how complex their needs. As a family we felt very reassured that Dad received the kindest care at the end if his life and we felt well supported.

Alison House Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire

All the staff at Alison House are caring, considerate, compassionate and treat my mother with dignity and respect. This has removed a weight burden from myself and my family to find such excellent care. The Manager manages to a very high standard which is extremely reassuring. Some of the decor is a little tired but mainly everything is to a very high standard.

The Haining Nursing Home Falkirk
Posted: 19 Jul 2014 by Alison O'Neill (Daughter of a resident)
This amazing place is indeed worthy of being called a 'home'. From our very first contact, which was under a very stressful set of circumstances, this was the right place for my mum. We are welcomed every visit by the wonderful staff, all of whom we know on a first name basis. We share a hug and a laugh and are always given information about my mum's activities that week. The efforts made by their national award winning activities manager Sandra to engage and stimulate the residents are above and beyond the call of duty. I suppose I should also mention that the house is always immaculately clean and fresh smelling and I love the fact that local school children have links with the home which results in frequent visits and projects from young people. My mother, an eighty year old, short and fiery Irish lady, was a confused, unhappy and unsettled woman when she first entered. She is now a happy and sociable lady once again, which for anyone that has dementia, is a wonderful thing to be. Thanks to a combination of Vicki(her fantastic social worker, Annie, Cheryl, Stephanie, Mary, Marti, Jacee, Aileen, Grant and all the other amazing staff, I now have a relationship again with my mother, which for those of you reading this with a parent who has dementia, realises that fact alone, is priceless. Simply put, I cannot recommend this home highly enough.

Harold McCauley House Omagh, County Tyrone
Posted: 19 Jul 2014 by Mary Murnaghan (Relative of Care Home Resident)
A lovely place; clean, personable, friendly; the Mission Statement is upheld; each resident is looked after very personally, with love, and attention to his/her individual needs and wants, beliefs, wishes and mores. There is an openness and willingness to embrace all colours and creeds which is very warming in this society. The Home is clean, and it is a pleasure to enter; interaction between residents, their relatives and staff is open and friendly. There is definitely a 'family' atmosphere, and support is given to residents and their relatives always when necessary, but particularly in times of crisis. I cannot thank the staff of HMcC Hse enough for what they did during almost 7 long years of caring for my Mum.

Templeman House Bournemouth, Dorset
Posted: 19 Jul 2014 by Jean Goodger (Mr Mother is in the home)
The care home is not 5 star but is very good in all respects. The 24 hour care and attention that my mother receives is excellent. The Food is good, the facilities are good and the staff are really caring and friendly. No appointment is required to visit - which can be at virtually anytime. The Management under Deanna & her assistant Dennis are really good. There are regular outings in the minibus and lots of daily activities within the home if required - all well organised by Ginny. All in all, an excellent care home.

Dean Wood Nursing and Residential Home Brighton, East Sussex
Posted: 18 Jul 2014 by Beverly Sawyers (Daughter of resident of nursing unit)
Absolutely delighted with everything at Deanwood. From the caring nursing staff who have gone above and beyond to make my sick mother feel at home in no time and make her comfort the number one priority, to the lovely light bedrooms with amazing views of the downs and sea, the many amenities (we have really enjoyed fantastic roof garden), the activity staff, the care workers who focus on ensuring every need is thought by, really every care his thought about and considered. We love the daily home made cakes ....and really appreciate the diabetic cake the chef has been making from my mum. Very different standard compared to the others we looked at in Brighton and Hove and we feel very lucky that there was a room available.

I can`t believe that there is any nursing home in the area that could provide the care and attention that was given to my wife during her stay at Kenbrook. The staff, without exception, treated her as if she were "royalty" and I would give them all 11 out of 10 for their hard work and dedication.
