Review of Orchard Blythe

Living 200 miles away, I am unable to visit my mother as often as I would like. It is reassuring to know that she is being well cared for by the team at Orchard Blythe. The staff always have time to discuss my mothers care with me and the home is a very pleasant and welcoming place. It is good to know that my mother is in good hands and being cared for with the dignity and respect that I would expect. The rooms are always clean and of a very high standard. It doesn't feel like an old peoples' home! Couldn't ask for more.

Review of Orchard Blythe

Mum has been in a moving on bed for almost a week. I am very impressed with the facility. A lovely warm atmosphere and staff who really care. They have a warm gentle funny way with them. This is clearly a happy, efficient well run home. Mum is already making good progress. I know she will go from strength to strength in this caring home from home.

Review of Orchard Blythe

As a family we have all been tearful and very upset regarding my mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Had we all known how nice it was going to be and how kind everyone was going to be to my mother and the interest all staff have in my mother I would have nothing to fear or worry about. All is well and as a family we are very pleased.

Review of Orchard Blythe

My brother and I, who live a long way from Mum, were reaching the end of our tethers trying to get adequate home care for her. Thankfully we managed to get her admitted to Orchard Blythe. We now have total peace of mind that she is being properly cared for. The staff are wonderful and Mum is very happy despite previous misgivings.
