In general terms, Mums family were happy about mums care during the four months mum lived at Vesta Lodge. I visited at least 10 times (because I live 100 miles away) and each visit I was welcomed by staff in reception who knew my name. This was most satisfying as I felt it indicated a personal touch. My other family members visited more frequently and were also impressed with the level of care given to the residents however, I was not sure about the fact that residents doors (including mums) were always left open when they were not in their room which led to other residents "visiting" Mum which she did not want.

I visit my Aunt at Vesta Lodge and I cannot get there often due to living so far away. Every time I visit I am welcomed by the staff and have every faith in the care my Aunt receives. She is treated very well and she is always smiling and laughing with the staff and other ladies she sits with. Thank you Vesta Lodge for all you do SJ xxx
