Review of High View Lodge

The dramatic release from stress and strain I have experienced since I approached the centre asking for day care for my wife by way of respite. My wife enjoys attendance and the atmosphere of happiness and serenity of the centre reflects the devotion, experience and professionalism of the management and staff.

Review of High View Lodge

My mother has Alzheimers and is happy and relaxed at High View. The staff are friendly and caring and they gently guided her into joining the organised activities, something she would not do when she was in her own home. I am able to enjoy my life again knowing she is being well looked after.

Review of High View Lodge

I want others to know of a good home, where they can feel safe to leave a family member. My mother has dementia and also needs to be hoisted when moved so is not easy, but she is well loved and cared for here.

Review of High View Lodge

We were very happy with the care given to mum during her stay. The staff at High View seemed to genuinely care for mum, looking after her physically and mentally beyond our expectations. She settled well and stayed happy over her 5 weeks stay. This all enabled dad to go abroad for his first holiday in 5 years, relax and feel so much better and ready to care for mum at home again. Thank you so much for everything. Your work has been appreciated.

Review of High View Lodge

I recommend High View Lodge as my fathers health has improved greatly. I am very grateful to all the staff and management for caring so well for him. They have patience and understanding of his condition and have helped me enormously with support and advice to manage what can sometimes be difficult situations. They are always there and resolve any issues hastily and professionally. Many thanks.
