Alexander House Wimbledon

My father Andre Gillieron, who passed away aged 95 last month, stayed there for the last nine months of his life. It was chosen because the immediate impression we got when we first visited, was one of a large country house, where people stayed, not that of an institution where people were “placed”. We visited frequently, calmness, warmth and un-hurriedness seemed to always prevail. We were always greeted in a friendly and informal way. The staff trusted us and allowed us to carry out minor tasks for my father. The care he received was in my opinion exceptional, in spite of various age related problems that occurred, which could easily have been used as an argument for his removal. This was never, suggested. During one visit, we were invited to join a monthly residents discussion with residents, on how improvements could be made, even though we had brought a three year old grand-daughter to visit Andre. These qualities can only be seen as a reflection of the management attitudes, skills and ideas that prevailed, and I must mention those directly concerned, Rory Bellfield, Anne Moore, Susan Macarthy and Angelina Madeira. I can’t say that the last months of my father’s life were particularly good, but he was happy in Alexander House, and was provided with a level of care that could not be improved upon.

Alexander House is far more like a home than a residential home. It has a lovely atmosphere, the staff are great and I feel my Mum's individual needs have been very well met. I would definitely recommend it, I love visiting my Mum, and feel very lucky to have found such an excellent place.

My aunt had been at Alexander for over 8 years. She was always well cared for. As a family we were always made very welcome and invited to all summer and Christmas events. She was allowed to stay at Alexander House until her death on 19 December 2014. During her last week it was evident how loving and caring the staff were. We will always be grateful.

Alexander House has a pleasant homely feel to it, the staff are attentive, caring and friendly and know all the residents by name. The character building also has a lovely garden which is often used for afternoon tea when the weather is suitable. The food is all freshly prepared on site and there is a good variety of dishes. All in all a very nice place to spend your twilight years, after a settling in period my Mother-in-Law is now very happy there.

My mother spent a very happy year in Alexander House before her death. I am SO grateful to ALL the staff for their many kindnesses and good care. I was abroad when my mother died. Her last day was in hospital, and she was visited by one of the care staff who was OFF DUTY. She sat with my mother for quite a long time. You couldn't wish for better staff.

I spent several months looking for a care home for my father who has Alzheimers. When I visited Alexander House for the first time (on the recommendation of a neighbour) I was struck by the friendly, homely atmosphere - it is my dad's new home and not an institution.
