Review of The Old Rectory

June 2014 Update to previous recommendation. My Mum has now been here for 3 1/2 years. She is so happy & so well cared for. They have weekly activities which she takes part in & enjoys. They are well fed & certainly not hungry with a menu she enjoys. In October she will be 90 & she's having a party, not that she knows. The home have offered to cater it which is great for me as I'm 100 miles away with my own health problems, so I don't have to worry. Her friends are always greeted well when they visit. Mum is cared for really well. And when she has accidents the staff are there to help quickly with no fuss or beratement. I really cannot recommend it highly enough. I'm so pleased we found it as she is not just in 'a care home' but in a caring family home to see her days out. And I know she is safe, active or as much as she can be, but most of all happy. Anne S

Review of The Old Rectory

Over and above care and consideration for residents. Excellent stimulation with entertainment every week. First class food. Meetings with the residents to discuss menus. Likes & dislikes overall a happy homely atmosphere in a lovely bright house. A small friendly home. With affectionate very caring staff.

Review of The Old Rectory

My mum has been a resident for just over a year. I have never seen her so happy! She was so excited about and enjoyed the Xmas just gone. She never really enjoyed Xmas before and never been excited about it! It was a pleasure to see. The staff are friendly, so helpful and come immediately if she needs help. Nothing is too much trouble. The home is clean and the food scrummy and plentiful. But also there is a feeling of warmth and belonging like in a family's home, unlike a lot of residential homes. They pick up on tiny changes in personality that indicate when she's becoming tired/unwell. But most of all I know she's safe and happy and I no longer need to worry about her from day to day.

Review of The Old Rectory

I stayed for 2 weeks in this home for respite and received excellent care by all staff to myself and visitors. Food was very good and good variety. Room was very comfortable and clean and the grounds were well maintained. Nothing was too much trouble. A nice variety of additional services were offered. Would highly recommend.

Review of The Old Rectory

The Rectory is very special. On entering there are lovely smells of baking. Very clean and light and airy. The residents are all happy and get treated with the greatest of dignity and respect. There is a lot of joy and laughter. It is just like home for the residents. My mother is there. She is very bright and alert, but getting more frail and she could not be any happier. There are a lot of activities and in the summer lots of BBQ's and cream teas and concerts. The owners are always helpful and wonderful. Nothing is too much trouble.
