Review of Heathside

Mum has lived at Heathside for over a year and is happy and well cared for. I visit several time a week and always find her looking nice and appearing happy. She is often involved in an activity - from bingo to painting - table tennis to bowls. Her room is clean and comfortable as is the rest of the home. I have no regrets or concerns. Wonderful home from home.

Review of Heathside

Yes, we highly recommend. Right from our initial enquiry to my mothers entrance, to her changing from respite care to full time care, the staff have been outstanding. Each member has taken the time to explain things to us, inform us and reassure us, while taking time to get to know us. It is such a relief my mother feels so cared for and happy. Thank you.

Review of Heathside

I would have no hesitation in recommending Heathside Care Home to my family or friends. The biggest and most important comment I can make regarding Heathside Care Home being better that the rest, is that they have staff that genuinely care. My mum is always clean, tidy and her hair is done. The carers know and treat my mum as a person, they have taken time to find out her like and dislikes and although I wish the circumstances were different, I am happy my mum is at Heathside.

Review of Heathside

I first came into contact with Heatherside a few years ago as my friends nan was a resident and very happy here. I was pleased to see it was still as friendly when my dad needed care as it was then. The care my dad receives is excellent but it is the attention he gets, the human touch, laughs and jokes. All the staff know his name and will stop to talk to him as he freely wanders around the home and garden. If your looking for somewhere your family member will be treated as family then Heathside is it, open and welcoming, I enjoy coming to visit myself and get to know everyone in his unit also and the staff.

I want to thank everyone for the wonderful care my mum was given for more than 5 years while she lived at Heathside. I want to thank everyone, the wonderful cleaners always cheerful and helpful, the chefs who prepared such lovely food, the management who are always happy to help, the receptionist who were always so kind to my mum. One of my most precious memories is arriving on a hot day to find my mum sitting under a rainbow of parasols playing scrabble while eating an ice lolly.
