Reviewer Connection to Lyndhurst Residential Home
Submitted from a Website Submission by John B on Tuesday 8 December 2015. Relates to December 2015.
Mum has now been a resident at Lyndhurst Residential Home for 2 yrs & 8 months and her time spent there has been, on the whole, a very pleasant experience. Mum, like us all, has her good and bad days but generally she appears very happy. This in the main is due to the care and attention given to her by the Lyndhurst staff. My wife & I visit regularly, occasionally at irregular times of the day and evening and have without exception always found mum in good order, clean, well presented and in good spirits. The staff are always very friendly and polite to us, and the residents respond very well to them. The whole house has a very homely feel to it and we always receive a warm welcome from the staff and residents when we visit.
