Review of Acorn House

My brother was in care for 2 years with Alzheimers. I was very pleased he went to Acorn House because he was very happy. The staff were very caring and understanding of his needs. When I visited him in the sitting room I watched how the staff looked after the residents. They were very caring and understanding of their needs. It was lovely to see how much care the residents had from the staff. If I had to go into a home I would choose Acorn House.

Review of Acorn House

Good proportion of staff to residents. Always very welcoming and friendly. I felt they provided a rounded level of care even in demanding situations with dementia residents. Plenty of activities organised throughout each month and regular news letters to relatives. Rooms, communal areas always kept clean set in large plot with 2 homes adjoining access to garden where BBQ and other events sometimes held.
