Review of Bethany Christian Home

After exhaustive searches in the Plymouth Area, we, as a family, blessed to find Bethany and its staff. From the first contact to every visit the staff and ambiance at Bethany is truly wonderful. Every time you enter and for the duration the staff are friendly,caring & willing. I know for my Aunt it feels like home from home, you cant put a value on that. The team there feel like a family. I know this may sound cliché, but, nothing is ever too much trouble. As for Emma Hughes the Manager, what a truly genuine, charming, efficient and resident care focused lady. It is clear that the home is in very good hands. Over the 3 months my aunt has been there I would say I've met most of the fantastic staff and I'm sorry I cant mention them all here. My family all sleep at night in the knowledge my aunt gets the best loving care. All that along with care, safety, daily activities, food and drink that my aunt says is like home cooking. Can I just also say that all this is all said without you knowing that I am very vigilant and demand the best levels of care for my aunt. With all the bad press and personal experiences with other care homes in the past - Thank you Bethany Home team for being so very very good.

Review of Bethany Christian Home

Mother has been a Bethany resident for 3 years and mother-in-law for 1 year. All medical needs are met. Both are very content and speak highly of the kindness and respect shown by staff. Personal care is given if necessary, so they are always well groomed in freshly laundered clothes. They are well fed and there is plenty of tea and cake! The mothers appreciate their clean, bright, well maintained en suite rooms with lovely views. They have their own precious things around them. Staff are friendly but professional and communicate well with relatives. Family and friends are encouraged to join in the social activities provided for residents. Bethany truly is their "home"where physical and spiritual needs are met.
