Care homes are not something you think about until absolutely necessary. I therefore viewed this home with doubts as to its suitability for my mother. I need not to have worried as it certainly lives up to all that I would want for my mother. She is loved and cared for with respect and dignity and gets all the little treats that she requires.

My mother has recently passed away after four happy years at Doveridge. Her care has been exemplary. That is only part of the story. The love and attention that she has received from the team there has made it a special time for her. Nutrition and outings etc. are important but genuine empathy in each individual case does make a difference. This is a very special place that places supreme emphasis not only on the residents but also their relatives. Thank you.

My Grandad has lived here for over 18 months. He is very happy and settled. The staff take good care of him and allow to pursue his own interests, mostly music and crosswords. He is also allowed to follow his own daily routine, generally getting up extremely late, the staff always make sure he is well fed as possible. He gets on well with all the staff and often mentions to me how good they are. He also appreciates the home cooked food and often tells ne how good this is. He enjoys the occasional outing and the activities co-ordinator is also very good to all the residents.

In January, I was faced with the decision of putting my father into care. It was a very difficult decision to make, as I wanted to care for him myself. Choosing Doveridge was the best decision made. Both the staff and care are excellent, I have a very happy father and in turn he has a happy daughter.

My grandad is very happy in this home, he gets on well with all the staff who are always friendly and helpful. He often tells me how good the food is. His medication is well managed and other treatments are promptly organised when necessary. The home always seems clean and tidy and his room is well organised as a bedroom/sitting room. Various activities are held in the home and grandad goes on a few outings (weekly-ish) but always enjoys himself.
