Review of Lady Spencer House on Friday 21 March 2014 by Diane C Paramor (Daughter of resident)

My mother has been a resident at Lady Spencer for 6 years, although there have been a great deal of staff turnover, but the last 12 months this seems to have stabilised. They have always kept me informed, if my mother had any health issues and she always has been kept clean and well fed and looked after. My mother is on 'the end of life' programme and I must say the staff have been excellent. It is a nice small home, which I feel gives a better care and attention to the residents.

Review of Lady Spencer House on Wednesday 29 January 2014 by Audrey L (Wife of resident)

This is a small establishment of 24 rooms; the atmosphere is warm and friendly- homely even. Staff and management are willing and approachable. The manager is a willing listener and addresses any issues which are raised.

Review of Lady Spencer House on Tuesday 14 January 2014 by Karen L (Daughter of resident)

Cannot fault management or staff generally the good thing about Lady Spencer is it feels like home - not an institution. The only frustration we've had is clothes going missing in laundry - even though everything is clearly marked. Also although very clean premises, sometimes the smell of pee is strong - need strong air freshers.
