Review of South Garth on Wednesday 23 October 2013 by Janice Bracey (Daughter of Resident)

My mother was a resident at South Garth for nearly 3 years until her passing in July 2013. Theresa and her staff always made mum feel loved and cared for and made me feel as though I was a friend. My mother, more often than not, refused food and the staff went out of their way to cook and buy in food especially for her to tempt her to eat and, at times, would go to the fish & chip shop as mum loved them. The last 4 weeks of her life, all of us believing she would pass in the first 2 days, mum was given brilliant 24 hour care. Theresa could have asked for mum to be moved to a nursing home or hospital but, despite putting extra strain on her and her staff, she wanted mum to stay with those that cared and loved her. The support given to me during those difficult years and especially the last month and the weeks after her passing was outstanding. There were times, of course, when there were problems but these were rare and always dealt with immediately. Mum was always, apart from once and the member of staff left, treated with dignity. I was listened to and involved in every step of mums care. I will always be extremely grateful to all of them.

Review of South Garth on Tuesday 8 October 2013 by Janet Wood (Daughter of residents)

Until recently both my parents were residents at South Garth, but sadly, my father recently passed away. I cannot fault the excellent care my father was given and the way my mum was supported. I and my family and friends love the homely feel of this home and the cheerful way the staff carry out their duties. I cannot recommend highly enough Teressa the manager and her wonderful staff. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend South Garth to families looking for a place for their relatives to stay.

Review of South Garth on Thursday 3 October 2013 by Christina Cole (Daughter)

The manager and staff have taken care of my parents since January 2013. Their care, compassion and kindness have been exemplary. The building may be old and in places need a little TLC itself, nonetheless Theresa and her staff do their very best at all times. Recently the kitchen needed to be totally refitted but the food and meals still arrived and again they stepped up to the mark. As my father lays dying they could not possibly do more, my mother is so very grateful for their care and compassion. The very best you could wish for. Thank haven for South Garth.
