Review of Doneraile Residential Care Home on Monday 4 August 2014 by Douglas M (Resident)

I have been a resident at this home for many months and I have, at all times, found the care to be of the very highest quality. Mr and Mrs Jones and all the staff are, without exception very kind, helpful and caring. There is a lovely happy family atmosphere at Doneraile.

Review of Doneraile Residential Care Home on Thursday 10 July 2014 by Anne-Marie S (Daughter of resident)

The home offers a very friendly, warm atmosphere. The staff are extremely polite, friendly and helpful. They engage well with residents, chatting and joking with them, which also creates a very homely environment. Staff address the needs of the residents and pass on any details the family should be aware of, and work closely with the family of residents. Residents are encouraged to be mobile and engage in activities, but their wishes are respected either way.

Review of Doneraile Residential Care Home on Wednesday 25 June 2014 by Jude Braggins (Daughter of resident)

My father would rather not be in a care home at all, but since needs must, Doneraile is the best place to be! It is a beautiful old house situated in a quiet and leafy part of town and he has a ground floor room with French windows onto a patio. The level of care he receives from Karen and her team is second to none. As a healthcare worker myself I recognise dedication when I see it! manners, politeness and respect matter to my dad, he is afforded it all here.

Review of Doneraile Residential Care Home on Tuesday 10 June 2014 by Ian McAlpine (Son of Resident)

My mother was a resident at the above residential home for just over 2 years until she passed away in August 2013. During the period she was there the family found the quality of care was of a very high standard. All of the management and staff had a genuine concern for the welfare of all of the residents and were particularly compassionate towards my mother in the last few weeks of her life. I would therefore have no hesitation in recommending this home to any prospective residents looking for accommodation in the South Devon area.

Review of Doneraile Residential Care Home on Monday 16 December 2013 by Matt Sweet (Family Member to a Resident)

My Dad has been a resident in Doneraile since October. He is a young man at 60 to now need full time care. His type of Dementia is known as Picks. More commonly known as a type of Frontal Lobe Dementia, or Frontotemporal Dementia. I have to say that the Staff, Senior Healthcare Assistants and Management have been remarkable, with such thoughtfulness to him still wanting to be somewhat independent. After visiting numerous homes without anyone really caring for the man that is my Dad, we have found a loving home for him. It was the sincere loving warmth and kind compassion that helped him settle in so well. I really enjoy hanging out with my dad in his room because it is very homely. I would recommend Doneraile because they care very much. Everyone treats him with a very respectful attitude.

Review of Doneraile Residential Care Home on Wednesday 14 August 2013 by Ben Ashworth (Son of resident)

My father's care at Doneraile could not be bettered. Although his room is quite a small single he had French windows with a lovely outlook. The food was excellent and home cooked which he really enjoyed. The staff were exceptionally kind and thoughtful and his round the clock care during his final months was exemplary.

Review of Doneraile Residential Care Home on Thursday 14 March 2013 by Margaret C (Brother of resident)

Could not fault anything, the care and loving attention my brother received was exceptional, beyond all expectations. This being my first experience of a care home I would definitely recommend this one. I myself received loving care from members of staff when my brother passed away. Doneraile is a care home of exceptional loving care and understanding of its residents.

Review of Doneraile Residential Care Home on Thursday 2 August 2012 by Ruth W (Family and neighbour of Resident)

Thirty years ago (1979-81) my mother-in-law was in Doneraile and my husband and I were impressed with the standard of care she received. A friend of mine is there now and the standard of care and concern for the residents is still the same. Queries are dealt with speedily and efficiently no matter which member of staff is approached and visitors are always made very welcome.
