Review of Loose Valley Care Centre

Having known very little about care homes before my mother became a resident I was a bit worried about the care that she was to receive, but after only a few days my concerns had evaporated into thin air. The care she received was second to none. The staff are absolutely brilliant in everything they do. Very professional and I would recommend the home to anyone! Any problems you have are always sorted without fuss and always made to feel that nothing is a problem, from changing a bed mattress to arranging hospital appointments. My compliments to one and all who work there.

Review of Loose Valley Care Centre

I cannot recommend this Nursing Home highly enough, they have been outstanding. Nothing is too much trouble for any of the careers they are always cheerful and happy to help. We celebrated my Nans 100th Birthday on Saturday in the home and they were excellent, food laid on and a beautiful cake. Bill Easom has only been at the home for a few weeks, but she has settled completely and is very happy. Thank you very much for making this a happy transition.

Review of Loose Valley Care Centre

My sister spent her final few months in the Loose Valley care home where she was looked after with a great deal of kindness and compassion. The staff were extremely patient and always prepared to spend time explaining my sister's condition to us. The manager and staff of this home provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere. My sister was always treated with dignity and always kept clean and comfortable.

Review of Loose Valley Care Centre

I found the staff friendly,respectful and professional. My Mother was treated with kindness, her clothes and bed linen was always clean, and her dignity maintained at all times. I called in to see mum at all different times during the day and saw many members of staff who always greeted me and acknowledged my presence.
