Review of Forest View on Friday 22 November 2013 by Moira Blacknell (Resident's daughter)

My mum was so happy at Forest View. The staff are fantastic, nothing is to much trouble for any of them, from the manager Andy and the deputy Yvonne through the team leaders, care workers, domestic staff, laundry staff, cooks and kitchen staff and the brilliant admin staff. Their friendliness, compassion and caring natures ensure for a happy well run home from home. Residents and families together enjoy some great activities during the year, Easter raffle, concert evenings, summer fayre, firework night, carol service and Christmas parties to name a few. From other homes I have visited they should take a leaf out of Forest views book on how to facilitate a home from home atmosphere for residents and families alike.

Review of Forest View on Tuesday 17 September 2013 by Gaynor K (Daughter of Resident)

Excellent manager who is compassionate and caring with good communication skills, the will to "get things done" and continually improving the condition and environment of the home, plus a good sense of humor. Caring and friendly staff, all with a good command of English, most of whom are willing to "go the extra mile~" to help the residents and an excellent reception team. Very good relationship between staff and families of residents.

Review of Forest View on Tuesday 17 September 2013 by Sheila Parkes (Wife of a resident)

My husband David goes to Forrest View twice a week, I feel so comfortable with him being there knowing he is so well looked after and is safe. The food is good and the staff are very patient with him as he takes a long time before he finishes, there is no rush. I am always informed if there is any problem and kept up to date of all activities, there is no pressure on him if he doesn't want to join in. Such a happy place and lovely staff all round.
