Welcoming, caring, comfortable environment with cheerful, helpful staff. A home from home! My sister in her six years there found the staff respectful of her needs and has enjoyed the organised activities, outings and social events i.e barbecues etc.

Review of Woodbridge Lodge

I recommend this care home to everyone. The home, staff etc and everyone are so nice and caring. I couldn't have found anywhere better for my mother. Mum is very happy here. There are always activities going on for the residents. The home cooked food is excellent, well prepared, well balanced, and very well served.

My mother has lived at Woodbridge Lodge for over 4 years and is very happy and content. Her room overlooks the lovely garden, where she can walk and sit out in the summer. The staff work extremely hard and provide very good care.

Review of Woodbridge Lodge

Whilst I would never wish for a relative to end up in care home, Woodbridge Lodge must surely be one of the best choices. Mum is really well looked after and cared for with dignity. As a regular visitor I always feel welcome when walking in town with mum I have been touched to see off duty staff come up and give mum a hug and say hello.

Review of Woodbridge Lodge

My mother first became a resident when we had to move her from her home as she had flooded it. Woodbridge Lodge staff were amazing. My mother liked the home so much she has stayed ever since. I have complete piece of mind as the home is very well run and the staff are very diligent. I am also impressed by the amount of activities provided.

Review of Woodbridge Lodge

Excellent home, warm and friendly. Very professional but with a very warm family atmosphere. The staff are very well trained and seem more like sons and daughters to the residents. The meal choices are varied and well cooked.
