Review of Steepleton Manor Care Home on Thursday 16 January 2014 by Nigel T. T. (Son of resident)

The standard of care was exceptional, and made my mother's last 8 weeks very tolerable. All of the staff could not have been more caring, thoughtful, and interested in my mother's wellbeing.

Review of Steepleton Manor Care Home on Wednesday 27 November 2013 by Edward A (Nephew of former resident, now deceased)

18 months ago, a very ill, confused, old lady, moved from her home to Steepleton Manor. Despite being 97 she had soldiered on doing her own cooking, shopping, cleaning etc and it all got too much. She became ill. Steepleton 'rescued' her with food, warmth, care, intellectual stimulation and kindness. Soon, years rolled back and she had a very happy final year there making friends with the staff, entertaining friends, and generally living life to the full before succumbing to 'old age' and dying there aged 98 1/2. We could not fault it in any way.

Review of Steepleton Manor Care Home on Friday 15 February 2013 by Marian Ball (Daughter of Service User)

My mother stayed for 5 weeks in this beautiful Manor House. During this time my mother enjoyed all sorts of activities which she found to be outstanding. The staff who cared for my mother were also outstanding and very caring. This was the first time I have used a residential home for respite for my mother and it proved to be excellent for me as well as for my mother. My mother met some very interesting people during her stay and could recommend Steepleton Manor highly.

Review of Steepleton Manor Care Home on Thursday 7 February 2013 by Lynda Franklin (Resident, convalescent care)

This beautiful old manor house is well run, with a team of dedicated staff for whom nothing is too much trouble. The grounds and beauty of Steepleton Manor provide a conducive and restful environment in which to get well and positively thrive. But providing a wonderful and safe place would count for very little if the staff were not up to scratch. Mrs Thomas and her team provide the excellence of care usually only seen in a 1 to 1 private care situation. Theses lovely individuals really do care and this is very evident in all the things they do.
