The Home is long established, having a stable and well trained staff and management Team which provides consistency and quality of care, often lost in the large establishments. The Home is well located with easy parking. All rooms are ensuite, decorated and furnished to a high standard; there has been continual investment into the home to improve and update it and this is reflected in the ambience and appearance of the surroundings.

My mother who is now nearly 102 years old has been a resident at Autumn Lodge for over four years and during that time has received constant attention and has never had cause to complain. Now that she is going through the later stages of dementia the staff are doing everything to ensure that she has a certain quality of life. My wife and I are constantly being updated with information regarding her medication and general condition. I cannot compare Autumn Lodge with any other residential home as my wife and I have not seen the need to move her anywhere else.

My wife has been in the care home for a good couple of years now. She has several illnesses that cannot be managed at home. This is why we chose the home for this reason. It's a family like atmosphere, a home to home with all her own things around her and nothing is too much trouble for any member of staff. Great place to live in.

When I first visited the home 2 1/2 years ago I was met by the manager who was warm and friendly. I was shown round in a relaxed manner, the staff were all friendly, residents appeared well cared for and happy and the home was clean and homely. My next visit was unannounced and the home and staff were exactly the same which made me feel that my first visit was not staged. Since then my father has been happy well cared for and has enjoyed the home cooked meals. All the staff are polite and welcoming and I have a good relationship with them, which benefits my fathers well being. I would certainly recommend this home.
