Review of Crowstone House

My relative lived with me, didn't get out of bed and refused food and drink but Doctors found nothing wrong with her. Since being at Crowstone House she has become a different person. She stays up all day, eats and drinks and will also walk short distances. She joins in on sing songs, quizzes and does jigsaw puzzles. She is more alert, brighter and happier. I am amazed and delighted at the positive change in her. The staff, from manager to the cleaners are all brilliant. This has impacted on my life as now I no longer worry constantly about her. I know she is cared for and is happy.

Review of Crowstone House

2 years ago my Mother was her for her last days and had a great time now my Mother-in-law is now here and enjoying the same caring treatment. The home has many varieties of things to do and being right on the sea is a wonderful tonic for all the residents. The staff are outstanding and many are still here from when my mum was here. This is one of the most amicable places.

Review of Crowstone House

My friend was transferred from another home due to her complaints, which were a symptom of her mental illness. Staff coped with her behaviour at times, but she went home as part of a rehabilitation programme, for a day and a night, and last week she went home permanently. This is a real achievement.

Review of Crowstone House

After care in the community, it was decided that my mother needed 24 hour care. Crowstone House provided all the care, regular meals, cleanliness and stimulation for mums quality of life, given by dedicated staff. They show patience, care and a varied diet over 24 hours, sometimes in very difficult situations. Recent redecoration and new furnishings, flooring and carpeting has added a fresh openness through all the personal and communal rooms. We as a family received so much support and frankness throughout my mums residence there. We were able to visit at any time and questions we asked were dealt with openly. We are so grateful to all involved at Crowstone House.
