Katherine House

Katherine House staff are simply the best! A good management team and truly caring care staff helped make my mother's transition from being mostly independent to requiring supported care as easy as possible in what is a difficult time for both resident and their families. Mum was made as comfortable as possible in a beautiful en suite room which she personalised with possessions from home, and on sunny days, open her French doors for a walk along the veranda. A full programme of activities provided Mum with opportunities to take a role in play reading, listening to a classical violinist and her favourite poetry sessions, to name just a few. Punctuating the year, some fabulous parties took place, which was a privilege to attend. As a family we were encouraged to be actively involved and regularly informed of events and news. The atmosphere was cheerful, safe, clean, and very caring, and Mum felt valued, respected and loved by all. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this wonderful home.

Katherine House

Such a caring, but not patronising, staff who take the residents' wishes into consideration. The atmosphere is bright and welcoming and there are always friendly staff to lend a hand. The best we saw...by a long shot.

Katherine House

My relative, whom I had not seen for about 30 years, was widowed on the death of my (estranged) brother. Her capacity was such that she was incapable of looking after herself and was immediately taken into care by the local authority Social Services team, who found her a place in Katherine House. I believe my relative had had a difficult life, but she is now clearly leading a very happy and contented life. I feel very grateful that she is a resident at Katherine House, which seems to be at the opposite end of the spectrum as compared to some of the harrowing accounts of other care homes that have been the subject of media attention.

The staff are superb very caring under sometimes difficult situations. My late mother loved it there and felt cared for. The home is clean and well maintained. Residents are encouraged to participate in activities and staff are available at all times to take residents to the lounges where activities are held. Food is very good and served in the residents rooms if required. I would recommend Katherine House one hundred percent.

My mother was a resident for fourteen and a half years and received fantastic care. Some of the staff have been there for longer than mum- a sign of a caring and secure environment. The home is always warm, clean and inviting. The staff relate very well to residents and their families being very supportive when times are difficult. The standard of personal care for each resident is very high. We always felt that they understood exactly what mum needed and delivered it with care.

Katherine House

We moved my mother into Katherine House from Oxford a few months after my father died. Mum settled in to Katherine House quickly and well; She took her favourite pieces of furniture, paintings and books from the family home in Oxford and furnished her spacious room with them so that it became a real home to her. All the staff were, without exception, warm, friendly, highly professional and genuinely caring. At the same time, they respected Mum's privacy and her wish for independence. All Mum's needs were more than met, and she was genuinely very comfortable and happy. The beautifully-kept gardens provided a wonderful space of contemplation and a lovely setting to read poetry to Mum. For me living in Australia, it was wonderful to no longer worry about Mum, and to know she was so well looked after and cared for. I cannot speak highly enough of Katherine House and its staff who treated all the residents with genuine affection, respect and with absolute professionalism, night and day.

Katherine House

It is impossible to recommend Katherine House too highly to anyone seeking a caring and supportive environment for their final years. The staff across all levels were considerate, gentle, attentive and empathetic and treated all residents in a dignified and respectful way, over the entire 24 hours of each day. I know my mother-in-law shared my view that she was very fortunate to live in Katherine House as her final home.
