Homely welcoming relaxed care home. Staff work so hard ensuring all residents are happy they go over and above to deliver love and happiness into the residents lives. Any concerns are dealt with promptly and professionally and I have never been made to feel like I am being a nuisance nothing is any trouble in fact if I myself require care in my later years this care home is where I want to live. Manager Hayley along with deputy manager Angela are a credit to Orchard Blythe both ladies are so committed to Orchard Blythe. Food is marvelous with lots of choice, Activities is superb recently having an open day welcoming all into the home with cakes and wine along with a entertainer this was wonderful for all to enjoy, Lisa new activity lady is passionate with in her role and this is shown each time I meet her. I feel the need to comment on this care home due to all the bad press we always receive involving care and I myself was very apprehensive but no more!!!!! because there are excellent care homes in the UK and I feel privileged that I have found one. Orchard Blythe. Thank you.

Orchard Blythe not only provide excellent care to my mother they go over and above to try and individualise care. Examples are: 1) We would like Mom to have additional activities outside the home and have employed a carer to do this, care home staff have gone out of their way to introduce this carer gradually to mum in order to build trust- this has taken weeks to plan and implement- their input has been invaluable. 2) 3 monthly reviews and family with any concerns acted upon 3) Their understanding of Mums behaviours truly enhances the care they deliver- they are skilled at what they do 4) I am extremely grateful for all their efforts and time.

Orchard Blythe provides an excellent, caring environment. The change of ownership caused some difficulties but this has now settled down and care has returned to the previous high standard. Disappointment must be expressed that the new owners promise of room upgrades has not been delivered.

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.

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.
