Review of Kestrel Lodge Care Home on Tuesday 20 May 2014 by Kathryn Tate (Mother is a resident)

My mother moved into Kestrel Lodge in April 2013 and has not looked back. She is happy and well adjusted. The staff are exceptional and treat everyone with care, understanding and dignity. They make sure that no one is ignored or left out especially during activities (there has recently been a 'day at the beach' day) but also take care if someone does not want to join in. This can be challenging but the staff here make caring look so easy. Along side the activities there are also resident and family meetings arranged where all residents can have a say about how things are run and if they would like anything to be put in place. Family members are also encouraged to attend and give input. My mother (having had several stays in other cares homes) is constantly telling me, and anyone who will listen, that this is the best Care Home in the country and I am inclined to believe her.

Review of Kestrel Lodge Care Home on Monday 13 January 2014 by Lucy Maria Hursthouse (Daughter of respite resident)

My mother is suffering from Alzheimer's. I have tried other nursing homes only to be very disappointed. Mum had her third stay at Kestrel Lodge in December. I can't praise the management and staff highly enough, the care and kindness shown to patients is next to none. When I leave mum at Kestrel Lodge I really do have a weeks rest as I know I have nothing to worry about.I also have to add that mum is a very difficult person to deal with. She is always agitated and aggressive, but she is always happy and contented when I collect her.

Review of Kestrel Lodge Care Home on Sunday 29 December 2013 by Janine Fox (Daughter of resident)

My mother became a resident at Kestrel Lodge earlier this year it was a difficult process but the staff made the transition much easier due to their kindness, support and understanding. The staff have worked particularly hard organising events for the residents over the past couple of months - the Halloween party was a big success as was the Christmas fair, Christmas party, Christmas trip out for a meal and the pantomime. The staff all work incredibly hard and go over and above to ensure that all the residents are included in the above events and family and friends are welcomed as well. A big thank you to all the staff, keep up the good work.

Review of Kestrel Lodge Care Home on Thursday 12 September 2013 by mick (relative)

I am a man of little words but really wanted to let everyone know how much Kestrel Lodge have helped my dad and family. It is like a home from home where everything is about the what is best for my dad. Nothing is too much. The home is bright and clean and regular activities mean he is occupied. I can't praise the staff enough and would like to see a big thank you from myself and my family.
