Ambleside Care Home

The family are really pleased with my brothers progress, since Alka agree to give him a place at Ambelside. His medication has been reduced to what he actually needs to function well, before he was like a Zombie, whilst at another home. My mother and I live in South Wales, so our visits are infrequent, however we are always given a warm welcome and a mug of tea from Alka and her staff.

My brother Robert was looked after so well at the Ambleside, the staff were all very caring and he was always so happy when he visited and he was kept very clean. My brother was in care for 26 years and the last year of his life at Ambleside was spent in a very pleasant and warm environment many thanks to all the staff.

My mother went to Ambleside for a respite 2 week care, 23 May 2014 to 5 June 2014. I only wish she could have stayed longer, my mum was safe, and cared for with kindness by Alka and her hard working staff. My mum has dementure and diabetes, this was controlled by healthy, freshly cooked meals. Mum always looked clean and happy, made friends with other residents, I will always recommend Ambleside to everyone.
