Gildawood Court Care Home, Nuneaton, Warwickshire

Gildawood Court Care Home is located close to the centre of Nuneaton, in Warwickshire. Nuneaton in the northeast of Warwickshire. Once a small hamlet listed in the doomsday book, is now a lively modern town. Its most famous ex-resident was Mary Ann Evans, or George Elliot. Many of the civic buildings and indeed the area around are named after her. On the edge of the Warwickshire coalfield, and with its textile industry developing, the town grew rapidly following the industrial revolution and further developed with the growth of manufacturing in Coventry and Birmingham.

Gildawood Court is registered with the Care Quality Commission to provide both short and long term care to elderly people who suffer with dementia and require help and support with daily living, but do not require nursing intervention.

Gildawood Court is a purpose built care home designed to provide the highest standards of care and facilities. The Court is tastefully decorated and furnished to create a gracious, elegant and comfortable environment. Of paramount importance and something that we never forget is that Gildawood Court is home and as such is always open to friends and relatives.

Although Gildawood is a relatively large care home, it is split into 2 areas, the Court and the Annexe, both of which are self contained and operate individually.

Gildawood Court Care Home

Our experience of Gildawood is very good, the staff are very caring and kind, our mother is treated with the utmost respect by everyone concerned. She is kept clean personally, also her room is very tidy, we are kept informed on a regular basis as to any changes in her health and welfare. We visit 3 times a week so are on hand if needed. We have no regrets on the decision we made to bring her here. That's our recommendation.

Mum moved in March and was very unsure as to whether she wanted to be here, but she has settled in very well and we are very pleased with the way she has been cared for, this has given us peace of mind and we are very grateful for this, as we had our reservations at first. Mum always looks well care for and has gained weight since being here so we know she is eating well. It has been a very difficult 12 months for us but we are very satisfied with our choice of home for our Mum

Overall, my experience visiting Gildawood is very good, but I do feel there are not enough staff to cope with the demands of residents. The Staff are excellent and do not receive enough recognition for the difficult job they do. Staff and Residents would benefit tremendously for an increase in members of staff.

Gildawood Court Care Home

My stepmother moved to Guisborough Manor when it opened, and stayed there happily until her death in April 2012. The staff were all caring and treated her with dignity and respect. She chose to remain there for her last days rather than be admitted to hospital. She was never left alone during her last days, both day and night. Family members were looked after and given emotional support, even after she passed away. The staff make the care home a home from home and we would recommend it for anone requiring care.

Gildawood Court Care Home

Care given to my husband and I at Gildawood is exemplary. At all stages of this horrible illness I have been kept informed. The purpose built home suits the needs of the residents ie. being able to walk around without getting lost. Menus always seem to be nutritious and varied. As in any organisation some staff/carers are more dedicated to their jobs than others, but most of the staff here are totally committed to the work they do and always "go the extra mile". Since completing this questionnaire my husband has passed away. The care received to my family and I in his final hours was exemplary.

My husband spent almost 2 months in Gildawood, and was treated with great care and utmost dignity and respect. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. John was always frightened because of his Alzheimer/dementia, but while he was in Gildawood, he seemed to lose a lot of his fear. Prior to being in for respite and care, John had been going to daycare, where he loved going, up to December 2014 when he began to be really ill. Kerry and Pam treated him really well. He was treated with dignity at all times, which for a very private man was exemplary. I only point them in particular because I remember their names, but EVERYONE was terrific. A special care home where I would recommend to anyone.

No problems; very caring, patient staff handling my father in his extreme, demanding state of dementia. Very grateful. Still awaiting confirmation of a promised CHC assessment (the initial, "screening" - type assessment done by care homes), otherwise no problems.

Open visiting so nothing to hide, creating a trust that residents are being treated correctly. No agency staff and long service from many staff so comfortable working environment. Comfortable and happy feeling in the home and residents treated with respect and compassion. Dealings with staff on all levels very good and always helpful. Very clean, pleasant smell - can't fault any aspect of cleanliness and personal hygiene. Good catering facilities and home cooked food. Excellent value for money.

Gildawood Court Care Home

dad had started day care at Gildawood when my mum had an accident at home which proved fatal. During this time Gildawood supported the family by looking after Dad, they exceeded all expectations. Since that terrible period in our lives, dad has become a permanent resident and I cannot think of a better place for him. The staff are caring, food excellent and accommodation very good. I dont know we would do without them.

I would definitely recommend Gildawood Court to anyone. I would not put my mum in a home which I would not go into myself. The staff are second to none they are friendly, very caring and proficient. Care, kindness and keeping residents clean comfortable and happy is most important which is what the staff do at Gildawood. Care homes could always do with more staff so that the residents could have one to one care at all times and 24 hours cleaners. That's a perfect world.
