The Island Residential Home

My mother has only just moved into this home, I looked at other homes, some were much more modern and looked like a new hotel but lacked the personal touch, others were shabby and not very nice, The Island home is homely and very clean, the staff are welcoming and willing to help at every opportunity, I know this will be a difficult transition for my mum but was pleased to leave her in friendly hands.

I would highly recommend this care home to friends and family. The care that my brother has received is as if he is part of their family. On arrival you are made to feel welcome. The staff are always friendly and happy to see you. Tea or coffee is offered, its a nice and homely atmosphere. The residents can keep their individuality which is good. I have never had to make a comment about cleanliness or smell! Great.

I was in a bad way before I came here, I used to drink alcohol and take drugs. I never ate much food. Now I eat properly, don't take drugs or drink alcohol. The staff are like nagging wives but it's good. I now have friends as friends and not what they can get out of me, like my last lot of friends. My room is always cleaned as well.

This home has been wonderful to my mother, they all care for extremely well. They keep us informed of any changes as soon as they can. She has recently had a lot of health problems and they have gone the extra mile for mum and for us. We feel confident in their ability to see to mum's needs, they are part of our family. I can't be happier with everyone here.
