Arcot House

My mother has been in Arcot Care home for over ten years and has seen many changes in all this time her care has been to a very high standard. The home itself has now been updated and all rooms and communal rooms have been brought up to a very high standard. Carer are full time which means residents get to know them all and build up a good rapport with them and the carers get to know each residents needs. I understand many residents are taken out regularly to various local attractions and have entertainment in the home. Unfortunately my mothers health does not allow her to join in these activities but enjoys her many games of scrabble with a member of staff in her room. As much as possible I feel Arcot is now a "Home from Home".

All staff are very friendly, caring, helpful and supporting both to mum and her family. The premises are always clean and smell clean too! The food looks and smells very good also. All in all I couldn't wish for a better care home for mum. Mum has been at Arcot House for over a year now and we know she is safe and cared for. In fact they feel like family.
