Our very elderly Mum has only been in Ferfoot a few months. She lived with us for forty years and we did not want her to go into a home but unfortunately we could not cope any longer but we now realise the care she is getting in the home is outstanding.

Review of Ferfoot Care Home on Thursday 2 May 2013 by Yvonne (Daughter of resident)

All the care staff here are excellent with my mum. They are bright and happy and very caring. If Mum is not well it is no trouble to call the Dr. and they keep the family informed of any medical attention she may need. I don't think you will get better care staff anywhere else. I visit daily and nothing is too much trouble for the staff, they always make time to have a chat. The bedrooms are bright and airy and very clean.

Review of Ferfoot Care Home on Wednesday 12 December 2012 by Malcolm Wilkins (Son of resident)

My mother, Mrs Edna Rebbeck went into care at Ferfoot Care Home on 8th November 2012 and sadly passed away on 7th December 2012. The care which she received was excellent and the staff were all so kind and friendly. Her room was large, light and nicely decorated with en-suite. My wife and I were very impressed with the care and attention she received in this short space of time.

Thank you all for looking after my father in the final 2 years of his life. I had peace of mind that he was always being well cared for and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The doctor was called in timely to prevent illnesses developing to keep residents in the best possible health. There was always good activities. You are all doing a great job.

Review of Ferfoot Care Home on Friday 26 October 2012 by Elizabeth Stent (Niece of resident)

I feel pleased with the way my uncle has been cared for. The staff will call for the doctor immediately they think there is a problem. I can call in at any time and this has never been a problem. I have particularly found Kirstie both approachable and efficient and she will involve us in any decisions. Also, Pat(reception)has always been very helpful.

Review of Ferfoot Care Home on Thursday 5 July 2012 by David A (Son of Resident)

Care of my mother over several years has always been exemplary. Meals are imaginative and delicious. The environment is stimulating and there are plenty of activities and outings. The activities co-ordinator is extremely dedicated and is a national award winner. The care staff are well trained in the care of residents, some of whom indeed the majority , suffer from severe dementia.

Review of Ferfoot Care Home on Friday 22 June 2012 by Maggie E (Wife to Don Edwards)

I recommend Ferfoot because my husband has been there 4 and a half years. It has always been very warm and friendly. The food is first class freshly cooked everyday fairly old fashioned puddings, my husband often has two puddings. His room is always spotless. Marion is a wonderful house mother looking after all their needs and Tracy is really good at entertainments. Kirsty is a really good under manager, all of the staff are a really good team (I feel very at home there).

Review of Ferfoot Care Home on Tuesday 15 May 2012 by Philip H (Son-in-law of Resident)

Specialist dementia care home plus about to accommodate patients requiring nursing care. Well trained caring staff with a particularly able enthusiastic activities co-ordinator. Patients are well looked after and their needs appear to be met and there is no problem that cannot be solved. In general, patients seem very happy.

Review of Ferfoot Care Home on Monday 14 May 2012 by Carl Ann M (Daughter of Resident)

Ferfoot is a very good home. All the staff are cheerful and attentive to the people in the home. Most days they have something to entertain them and help them do things. My mother has been there nearly four years and is quite contented in her own way.

Review of Ferfoot Care Home on Saturday 12 May 2012 by Anthony McNiff (Son of Resident)

My father (dementia sufferer) recently transferred to Ferfoot from hospital in South Wales. My brother and sisters had found it difficult to find a care home that would both look after him and provide active care that would allow him to make the most of every opportunity he could. Ferfoot has exceeded our expectations. My father is treated with kindness and respect from a dedicated staff and is encouraged to participate in a wide range of stimulating activities. The condition is difficult to deal with but the knowledge that he is being well cared for is a real comfort.
