The home has a feeling of being very relaxed and welcoming. The atmosphere is very "own" home like, with every member of staff doing their utmost to make me feel comfortable.
I do wish my dad lived in the country so I could secure a place for him here.

Eastfield House is a very happy place, which is obvious from the moment you step through the front door. The staff are all wonderful, caring and compassionate. My father is 96 and has been there for almost two years. When asked how he felt recently, his answer was 'contented'. You can't ask for more than that.

Eastfield House has made a huge difference to my relative, in all the 15 years I've known her I've never seen her smile and laugh so much as I do now. The staff are so lovely and friendly, they have made a huge difference to her life. Choosing a care home is so difficult, the decision was made by my relative and her dreams came true as she was able to stay in an area where she has lived all her life. She is very happy with the service she receives and has said the food is wonderful.

My Mother moved into Eastfield House in July 2014 having lived stubbornly and proudly independent up to that time. She finally accepted help and loving care with dignity and company. This summer she was the happiest I can remember. The Manager and her staff are very caring and go the extra mile to make life as full and comfortable as the individual residents are willing and able.

Since moving to Eastfield House in April this year dad has been very well looked after. The home has a very friendly atmosphere and runs more like a large family home. There are regular outings in the mini bus for those residents wishing to go and also a number of indoor activities for those who don't wish to venture out.
