Review of The Old Rectory

After 24 days in the Coronary Care Unit of Yeovil District Hospital the high level of care, peace and quiet of the Old Rectory was greatly appreciated. The 2 weeks spent here before going home to live on my own helped me to adjust from hospital to self care.

Review of The Old Rectory

The residents and the members of her family were all happy with the standards of care, the friendly ambiance and the feeling of being welcome at any time. Our visits to the residents were always impromptu; food is good, frequent refreshments and nourishing snacks. All staff members- cleaners, cooks, care assistants and the gardener very friendly and obviously know the resident well. Her end of life care was well managed.

Review of The Old Rectory

The first thing that impressed me when I viewed The Old Rectory was the warmth and friendliness of the staff and management. It is a beautiful old building and I would think that all the residents would be very happy here. I know my mum has settled in very well and quickly and this would all be because of the above.

In the 18 months my Mother has been at the care home I have found the staff to be very friendly and attentive to the residents. Everyone seems to be quite happy and the activities are excellent run by Jenny. They all seem to be happy with the food.
