Review of Sonya Lodge Residential Care Centre

As a family we found it very hard placing our mother in residential care particularly as she is at the higher end of functioning. We all found the staff and management at Sonya Lodge both welcoming and supportive and this has continued throughout the year that our mother has been a resident. I have visited at various times and days and have always found the staff caring and respectful. I feel informed regarding my mothers care. I am delighted that she is taken out for coffee etc. I have nothing but praise for the staff.

Review of Sonya Lodge Residential Care Centre

So, So Lucky
Having been advised to move our father (who has Alzheimer's) into a top extra care facilities, it became very evident that it was not suitable. The staff had no knowledge of dementia and the care given was appalling. They were not happy if the residents left their flats which my father did repeatedly. In the end they wanted him out, meaning two moves in 18 months. We struggled to find a home we liked until a member of my hydro team mentioned Sonya Lodge. Not the best from the outside but inside- BRILLIANT. Staff are brilliant, patient and caring attitudes and all the residents are calm and happy. Dad settled in within weeks.

Review of Sonya Lodge Residential Care Centre

We are very pleased with the care that is given to the residents and find all the staff very friendly and polite. The residents are always treated with dignity and respect and Janet engages them in activities during the weekdays, including trips out to the local church for coffee mornings, patient therapy dogs come in during the week. Our relative has settled in here really well and I would have no hesitation recommending this home to future relatives or friends.

Review of Sonya Lodge Residential Care Centre

Our family visited several dementia care homes when mum needed professional care. This home was the only one that ticked all the boxes for us. Every single member of staff is caring and kind and are all knowledgeable with what is needed for dementia sufferers. When we visited to view without an appointment, the door was thrown wide and we were welcomed in, nothing to hide at all. We were very impressed with all aspects of Sonya Lodge and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who has a relative needing dementia care.
