Review of Cunningham House on Friday 18 October 2013 by Jo Hunt (Residents grandaughter)

My nan spent her final year at the age of 96 living in Cunningham house. I cannot recommend this home enough from the very first day until my nan's last breath she was treated with care and dignity. The home and every member of the team down to the laundry women and all the cleaners are respectful and are fantastic at there jobs. We as a family cannot fault this wonderful home at all and the staff became like family. I am so pleased with this home and when my nan was passing away they treated her with dignity and respect and was absolutely fantastic with us as a family. We will really miss going to such a wonderful place. Jo hunt Florence's granddaughter .

I recently visited a friend, and was concerned to find that the staff were all in the care office and the residents were left unattened, i appreciate this may have been a one off, but residents appeared happy,

Review of Cunningham House on Thursday 26 April 2012 by Patricia C (Daughter of Resident)

Cunningham House has a warm, caring feel to it. The staff are so dedicated to the residents, they treat each one as if they were their own family. They do a wide variety of activities throughout the day. My mum is a changed person since she has been there, she's so happy and has made a lot of friends.

Review of Cunningham House on Wednesday 18 April 2012 by Betty S (Sister of Resident)

In all the 8 odd years that my sister has made Cunningham House her home, I can only say that she has always been treated as one of the family. It is not an easy job caring for the aged, but staff are always helpful, kind and ready to welcome you when you visit. My thanks and praise to all of them including the Chief.

Review of Cunningham House on Wednesday 18 April 2012 by Susan C (Daughter of Resident)

My mother is in the final stages of dementia and all her carers are trained to deal with her many quirks. She is treated as an individual by people who genuinely care for her. Standards in the home are continually monitored by Rosemary Moor, Manager and her Assistant Manager and seniors. Many people do not care or understand dementia, but Cunningham House certainly does and proves this daily!

Review of Cunningham House on Tuesday 10 April 2012 by Kaye L (Daughter of Resident)

A warm welcoming environment in which residents are well cared for. Activities are provided to meet varied interests and to keep minds alert as possible. Staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms are airy, pleasant and residents can personalise them with their own belongings. The grounds are lovely to sit out and the various animals provide additional interest.

Review of Cunningham House on Tuesday 10 April 2012 by Arthur C (Husband of Resident)

The staff are very thoughtful and caring, building a relationship with the residents which is personal at the same time as very professional. It's a great comfort to me as a relative to know that the care couldn't be bettered.
