Review of Newland House on Monday 31 March 2014 by Jan S (Daughter of resident)

Newland House has a lovely relaxing atmosphere. I have been impressed by the number of activities provided for the residents. Residents rooms are bright and comfortable with their own toilet/basin facilities. All the carers seem to genuinely enjoy looking after the residents and come across as cheerful and helpful. I am very happy with how my father is being cared for.

Review of Newland House on Monday 10 March 2014 by Paula Fenwick-Beale (Daughter of Resident)

I was most impressed with the level of comfort the rooms provided against value for money. The meals are also, good value for money. The tidiness and comfort that the dining room and lounge offer is good. I like and admire the vision that the Manager has for the home and the improvements that she is putting in place. The level of care initially appears to be very good and they are responsive to my requests. The entertainment and trips out are good, for my Mum she has found a new lease of life, knitting again, laughing again and going out. The only negative experience I have with the care home and the hospital system is the lack of personal care, supervision regarding my mothers toileting habits. Other that you can say that I am one happy customer. 8 out of 10. Thank you.

My father passed away recently and the staff were so supportive and kind. They took time to care for me in my time of grief. I couldn't have coped and been so strong without them. Excellent care of my father who was not always agreeable. Thank you Newlands team. A very happy family nursing home.

Review of Newland House on Friday 8 November 2013 by Margaret J (Wife of resident)

I cannot praise too highly the loving care that my husband received from all the staff at Newland House during his stay there (5 months). Without exception their kindness, patience, respect for dignity, and above all excellent nursing care, were exemplary. Nothing could have made his last days with them more peaceful. It is an absolutely outstanding care home.
