My mum was cared for in this nursing home for two weeks. The manager and the staff treated my mum with love and respect, they made her laugh and Marisa the manager ran the nursing home so well, nothing was a problem. My mum was Catholic and Marisa organised Cannon Luke for St Frances Church to visit mum which meant the world to her. I would 100% recommend Loose valley Nursing Home to anyone. I know I am so happy that my mum spent the last two weeks of her life in this environment.

My mother-in-law went to Loose Valley on April 9th this year and sadly passed away on the 24th April. The level of care and compassion went way beyond what we could have hoped for, this includes every member of staff, the attention to detail was amazing, every carer, nurse the chef and the manager Marisa were so professional. It means a lot to my partner and myself that her mum spent her final days in this wonderful and well run nursing home.

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.

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.

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.
