Ever since we first visited the Doveridge we have felt it is a great place, it has always felt like a home from home. The staff are great, always friendly and helpful and Nicky is brilliant. My aunt is very happy here and the staff are great with her.

Review of Doveridge Care Home

The home provides a safe comfortable place for my gran. Staff are very attentive and meet her needs. She is a reluctant resident, at 95, but staff reassure her well. The home also welcomes her daughter who visits three times a week and has her own needs.

Review of Doveridge Care Home

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.

Review of Doveridge Care Home

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.
