Review of Lyndhurst Residential Home

My dear old auntie never married or had children, but she did look after her old Mum until my grandma died. Since then auntie has been an independent maiden aunt who has really enjoyed family get togethers and spoiling her nieces and nephews, and being a very caring head mistress of a local state nursery school (for over 25 years). Now in her twilight years, she has her needs cared for by the lovely respectful team at Lyndhurst - really understanding auntie's physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.

Review of Lyndhurst Residential Home

My husband has been a resident here for 6 months. He is not a sociable person, but has settled well and seems to get on with the staff who are cheerful and caring. (He is in care because I have been diagnosed with cancer) He has been cared for at home for a number of years (8-9) with increasing vascular dementia, and I cannot manage now. I am very satisfied with the services provided at Lyndhurst.
