My mother spent the last eight years here. It was warm, welcoming and homely with a wonderful team of carers. My mother was treated with kindness and respect. I was always welcomed and shall continue to pop in for coffee as I was treated as a friend always.

The Old Rectory

At the age of 86 I considered selling my bungalow and moving into sheltered accommodation where I could have help but keep my own independence. I then realised that when the time came I would have to go through all the trauma of selling a property and moving again, so I decided to move to a care home and came into the Old Rectory. Here I have the best of both worlds. A lovely room, loving care and yet have kept most of my independence. I could not be happier and feel very lucky.

The Old Rectory

Of all the homes I visit this is the one I would choose as my retirement or that of an elderly frail relative. This family run home is friendly, clean, warm and cheerful. The staff are mainly long term with very little turnover. The residents see visitors pets also children which the soon reminisce about their own.

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
