Mum is very happy and settled in the home. The only criticism we have is the fact that her clothes and hairbrush keep going missing even though we do all her washing, very disappointed with this but other than that we are very happy with the service, staff and home. They are doing a very good job with mum.

Kate Horsted, Director at Cavendish Care Home responded to this review on 03 Feb 2016:

Thank you for your review, and I am pleased that your mum has settled in well and that overall you are very happy with the care in the home. The points you raised have been discussed with the staff this week during meetings. The Registered Manager operates an open door policy and would be very happy to meet with you at any time should you wish to discuss anything at all.

My Father went to stay at Cavendish in June and has settled in well, mainly due to the excellent staff, they were very patient and understanding with him. They have just completed a sensory room which is lovely and very useful when Dad needs a quiet moment to gather himself. The gardens had a re vamp this summer which was great and the staff have made the garden very pretty, everyone loves to go out there weather permitting. It is a lovely home with a 'family' feel to it, it has a great atmosphere and the staff are always welcoming, nothing is to much trouble. There are lots of activities for those residents who wish to join in, the summer and Christmas fetes were a great hit with the residents and we have a trip to Prinknash this weekend. The Staff do an excellent job and are very caring, I would feel very happy to recommend this home to anyone who is looking.

Cavendish care home is managed to an extremely high standard by the registered manager who has made some very positive changes to ensure person centred care is delivered at all times. The care assistants are always helpful ensuring my granddad is treated with dignity and respect. I cannot fault the care that my granddad received.

My mother came to Cavendish when she was discharged from the hospital where she'd had a frightening bewildering few days. She had not received the compassion she desperately needed considering how rapidly her mental capacity took a dive/escalated into dementia.
The staff at Cavendish welcomed her warmly. They could not have been more attentive to all her needs. Physically in their care she is almost completely better. Emotionally though it is a joy to see how she has blossomed in their care. The registered manager and the senior carer in particular have been extremely kind and caring to all of us (her family), in adjusting to the trauma of the sudden transition from home, to hospital and to a care home.

All the staff have been brilliant. They have made a huge difference to my dads quality of life and in the process helped my dads family. My dad moved from a different care home. A mistake on our part as it has turned out, thank goodness we found the Cavendish Care Home.

Mum has had periods of respite and now permanent care with Cavendish Care Home. They have been, without fail, kind and caring treating mum with respect but being firm when they need to be. They have dealt with her doctor, social services and the hospital on our behalf and kept us up-to-date with what is happening. When she has needed additional support they have made all the arrangements for equipment so they can keep her comfortable. We're more than happy with the support she's received.

In January this year (2015) my mum went to Cavendish for respite care due to her dementia becoming far worse and my father requiring a break from being my mum's full time carer. She only stayed for a short period due to her condition becoming worse and her requiring further assessment in hospital, but during this time she was looked after exceptionally well. From the very first meeting with the manager the care and professionalism given by the manager and his staff was excellent. They went out of their way to look after my Mum (who had severe dementia and extreme anxiety) and also us, as we were very upset for my mum to have to leave her home.
She was always treated with respect and we knew when one of us was not with my mum she was looked after properly and with dignity. I always felt that the staff truly cared about my mum and her well being and she was not 'just someone staying in their care home'.
The rooms and all the communal areas were always clean and tidy. The bedrooms are not large, but adequate and had all that is required to be comfortable.
The staff were always happy to discuss my mum's care needs and even when my mum's care needs increased, they did what they could to ensure she had what she required. Unfortunately as my mum's condition deteriorated she had to leave here but the help they gave my mum is not forgotten.

Excellent care from all the staff, very caring and understanding. Mum's personality has changed considerably since coming to Cavendish in a good way, she socialises very well which she didn't do before. By far the best care home I've come across in Gloucester.

Cavendish has been a godsend to us. Mums dementia had got to the stage where she wasn't safe to be left alone. Her care here has been fabulous and other than her dementia she is very well for a lady of 90. The staff are all very kind to the residents and the home has a family atmosphere rather than that of an institution. The care is first class and it is clear that the staff form bonds with the residents, which all goes to making Cavendish a special place. There is also a good program of regular activities to keep the residents stimulated and entertained. The staff and management are approachable and open to ideas.

I am very happy with all aspects of mums care. She is always clean and tidy and well fed. Staff have made a real effort to get to know mum well and are always most helpful. Specifically the senior carer who mum gets on very well with and the manager who has made a real effort to transform the décor to suite the service users needs.

My Mother spent four months in this excellent care home until she died, aged 97. She was cared for with great love and affection, and I have nothing but praise and admiration for the way the manager and the staff work to make the place the happy home it
is for the residents. I unreservedly recommend Cavendish to anyone who has a relative suffering from dementia - your worries will be significantly eased, knowing that they are being well looked after.
