Review of St Cecilia

As soon as I walked into the hallway if St Celilia's I knew that this was where wanted my mother to be. The love and care at St Cecilia's is overwhelming. The residents are treated with the up most politeness and respect. My mother spent the last 21 months of her life there and was happy and relaxed and at peace in the home. Home is what became to me as a visitor. Her family were made welcome at all times and it was a pleasure to attend the weekly singalongs and events such as the summer BBQ's, with good food and the band playing. I cannot speak highly enough of the care and above all the love given to my mother from the staff at St Cecilia's.

Review of St Cecilia

My mother was at St Cecilias for 5 very happy years. She was always happy, smiling, laughing, singing - she was loved by all the staff. Sadly she died in June 2013 and all the staff and management worked timelessly and endlessly during her illness, but also love and care was also given to us as a family. They helped us during mum's illness and after she died. We love the care home so much, they let me stay with mum all day and looked after us and kept us updated on her condition every day. We still go to visit them weekly - the love and care shown to all the residents is fantastic. I am so happy my mother was at St Cecilias.

Review of St Cecilia

I have been visiting St Cecilia's with my Therapy Dogs for a number of years. We are always made to feel very welcome, and the residents are treated with respect and always a caring attitude. There is a very high staff to resident ratio. I was so impressed with the home, that I organised for my father to be moved there, as I knew he would have the best quality care in a very homely environment.
