Forest View

My wife suffers from Vascular and Alzheimer's Dementia. She spends one day a week at "Forest View", which is run by Shaw Care Services on behalf on West Sussex County Council. I can look forward to a day's respite, confident that the staff are warm and considerate - that she is in good caring hands. Although she cannot usually remember what activity she has undertaken or what she had for lunch, she is happy to be left there and always says that she has had a nice day.

A very caring environment. Staff at the home have become friends and extended family. They looked after my father and now my mother. They are well trained in looking after dementia residents and are always looking to improve the care they offer.

To mark anyone or anything lower than outstanding seems a little unfair. As you enter the home there's an air of caring and helpfulness. From the higher staff to the to the lower, everyone seems to care. From someone who wanted to keep my wife at home I knew how impossible it would have been. May I say thank you to all the staff.

My husband who has severe dementia has been in care at Forest View for nearly 6 months. During that time I have been very pleased with the care, consideration and kindness shown to us both, by all the staff and carers. It is a very well managed home where all the residents are treated with dignity and respect. Families know that their loved ones are being well cared for in a safe and loving environment.

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.

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.
