Review of Homesdale

I thank god every day for finding this wonderful place for my mother. All the ticks below say it all. It is not like you are in a residential home, more like a hotel. There is nothing bad to report only good. My mother has blossomed.

Review of Homesdale

Whilst visiting my mother-in-law on a weekly basis for the last two years, I have always been struck by the friendly, caring ethos which is evident. Staff are always cheerful and friendly and the care they provide to residents is exemplary.

Review of Homesdale

We can't rate homesdale enough, our mum was here for 6 years but sadly passed away in December at 101, we don't think she would have lasted so long without the care & love that she received from the staff who tirelessly cared for her especially in her last week, they understood our worries about hospital & with their help & the gp she passed away as we could only hope for in a loving environment, both of us feel that we are part of a special family & still are made welcome for a cup of tea,chat & above all support, thanks to all of them.

Review of Homesdale

Since my mum moved in to Homesdale three months ago, we have been extremely impressed by the quality of care provided to her. Every member of staff has shown her and us great sensitivity, kindness, and very efficient and personal care. We find it hard to imagine any way in which this could be better. In every way she feels well cared for and she is delighted to be there.

I would recommend unreservedly. The care is personal, relaxed, very professional. Residents are not just treated but served in-accordance with needs and the vision of this exceeding residential home.

Review of Homesdale

Today, as usual, i visited my mother to find all the residents enjoying the singing and playing of Nick- the guest musician. It was lovely to see the residents smiling, singing along and clapping. A few were dancing with carers. Good humour was evident, everything Homesdale offers, so much in a homely atmosphere with cheerful and chatty staff. We consider ourselves fortunate that our mother is cared for in such a happy environment.

Review of Homesdale

During late 2011 it became increasingly noticeable that our* mother (Aged 89) could no longer continue to live the independent life that she valued so dearly. After soliciting advice from friends and local professionals, as well as researching published data on quality of care standards, we decided with our mother that Homesdale was the best choice for her residential care. As there were no vacancies at the time of application, our mother was admitted to a care home in a nearby district run by a large national organisation. During her time at this care home, our mother's overall condition deteriorated and we were of the view that its "factory" approach to care was the opposite of what we were seeking. We became increasingly desperate "to do something", and it was with relief that we heard from Homesdale that they had a vacancy in the early Autumn 2011. At this point we did not actually know what the experienced standard of care was at Homesdale, but our intuitive view was that it had to be better than what our mother had experienced previously. She, and we, were not disappointed! At he point of entry to Homesdale, our mother was, for example, refusing to get out of bed, had lost interest in life/living, and was suffering severe back pain and memory loss. Now, six months later, she is a different person - more alert and communicative, looks better and takes more interest in her dress, etc., complains less of aches and pains, and remembers most things (even though, sometimes this needs a little prompting!). Clearly, Homedale staff have developed an individual care plan for our mother, constantly seek to involve her in social activities and games, urge her to make decisions and welcome family and friends to be involved in the Home.

Review of Homesdale

My mother has been in Homesdale for over 18 months now and I continue to be impressed with the loving care she continues to receive there. Moreover, now that the lounge extension has been completed, it provides a pleasant comfortable and easily accessible environment for the residents and visitors with the French doors and windows open. It will be wonderful in the summer months.

Review of Homesdale

Homesdale is a small care home in a village part of London, in a Victorian house with a homely feel. It's part of a larger sheltered housing complex and activities are often shared. Residents are thoughtfully cared for and the food is good! The rooms are pleasant and well looked after. Laundry is well organised. The surrounding gardens are attractive. Managing staff are accessible and flexible, they cooperate with families to ensure the resident has the best possible quality of life.
