I cannot praise the care home enough for all the attention they give my dad. He has deteriorated very fast since his admittance in May. He also had to cope with the loss of my mum within a month of his admittance. The staff are first class to him and is as a family. All the residents look immaculate, as so much time and effort is spent giving them one to one attention making them feel safe and secure. Dignity is preserved at all times.

I would recommend this home to other people. I have always been happy with the care and attention Mum has received since being here. The staff are genuine and caring, even when rushed off their feet. On the negative side the laundry seems to lose Mum's underwear a lot which seems annoying as most times it is never found again and becomes expensive as the family has to renew items.

My mother became a resident in March 2015 after losing her husband in December 2014 after 68 years of marriage. She was seriously ill in January and was unable to return home. Social services placed her in another care home which she hated and was very frightened. So together with my sister we moved her to Loganberry Lodge, where I'm pleased to say she has settled really well and is very happy. The staff are all helpful and caring putting our minds at rest.

My husband has been looked after very well in the years he has spent here. He is happy here, he loves the entertainment as well. Also it is very convenient for me to visit my husband, as I only live 10 mins away. It is very handy to have the doctors visit if need be, the staff here all do their best to help. We all get along, staff, residents and visitors.

My father has been a resident for over two years and although his health has deteriorated the staff have been excellent in providing the essential care to manage his changing needs. When he was able to walk they tried to integrate him with others, but as he gradually became less mobile and unable to get out of bed they endeavour to keep him comfortable, whilst maintaining a good level of hygiene and ultimately ensuring dads dignity is maintained at all times.

After losing my husband, having no family I felt very lonely, but since coming into Loganberry Lodge my whole life had changed. The "Home" is spotlessly clean, comfortable and the staff are wonderful. My whole life has changed for the better.
