Review of Woodlands

My mother-in-law spent two very happy years at Woodlands. The food is excellent and all the staff are very caring and attentive. She particularly enjoyed the exercise classes and the musical entertainment. We never had to fear for her safety, as we did when she lived alone, and having the companionship of other residents made all the difference to her health & happiness. We would not hesitate to recommend Woodlands to anyone looking for a safe & caring environment for a relative.

All positives and absolutely no negatives. A purpose built facility in a very tranquil setting, wonderful care form friendly, helpful staff. There is constant stimulation form the residents with different activities every single day of the week.

Review of Woodlands

My mother has been a resident at Woodlands for nearly 2 years, where she has been very comfortable and well cared for. Unfortunately recently she has had a number of stays in hospital, which meant needing additional care on discharge. I have been so impressed with the exceptional commitment by the management, care staff and auxiliary staff to provide extra facilities, care and attention to enable my mother to remain at Woodlands, where everyone and everything is familiar to her. They have gone out of their way to help us to enable Mum to stay where she is happy and content and has recovered beyond all imagination. A very big thank you.

Review of Woodlands

I am nearly 90, my wife in hospital care for the last three years with dementia. I was unable to care for her and run the house so my daughter got a place for me here. I always say it's not home, but here it's the next best thing.
