Review of Leawood Manor

My dad lived at Leawood for nearly 2 years and received wonderful care. Throughout his time there he was treated with respect and wanted for nothing. I am so pleased that he passed peacefully away in his own room with his family and not in hospital. The support we received from the staff was amazing. This is a wonderful care home, I can't believe how lucky we were that dad was a resident here. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

My brother was a resident in this home for approximately two months. I visited him there last week for the first time - just before he passed away. I can only repeat with true sincerity all the remarks made by others who have submitted recommendations for this Care Home. The Staff I met whilst there were wonderful - not only in looking after my brother with such a dedicated caring attitude in his last hours but also in the consideration given to his wife and family - making sure we were comfortable and catered for. Thank you so much Leawood Manor. A Care Home without doubt to be recommended.

Having visited many local homes whilst looking for care for my mmother Leawood was the only one that ticked most of the boxes. The atmosphere is very homley and the staff are very caring. It has a lovely feel about it. Management is very quick to tackle any concerns and they are as supportive to relatives as to residents. at last I can relax knowing my mother is well cared for.

Review of Leawood Manor

Facing the decision to find care accommodation for an elderly parent is one of the most difficult things to come to terms with. I am giving this recommendation in the hope that it will help someone when that time comes. My time came after my mother had a broken hip following a fall. Once the hip had healed the hospital was organising a date for her to leave hospital. During her time in hospital mother was receiving physiotherapy but had not achieved the ability to walk or even go to the toilet alone and was therefore wheelchair bound and needed 24/7 attention. I was loath to agree a date for mother to leave hospital because I knew that once she had she would no longer receive physiotherapy and I would be sentencing her to a life in a wheelchair. On explaining this to the hospital they informed me that ‘your mother does not have the potential to improve further’ and there was no more they could do for her. Armed with this the family researched care homes in the area, and on visiting Leawood Manor we knew immediately it was the one, and can honestly say that our first impression has proved correct. I was told the day mother went into the home that I was to treat everything the same as home, I could pop in and out as was convenient to me, the kitchen was mother’s kitchen and I was to use it as such. I must say that I never had cause to use the kitchen even to make a cup of tea since food and drinks are given to residents regularly throughout the day. On one occasion in the summer I arrived to find all the residents being given a choice of ice cream or an ice lolly. Mother had only been in the home a matter of weeks when I arrived to find her walking with a frame. I can tick all the boxes for Leawood Manor when it comes to the standard requirements of cleanliness in bedrooms, bathrooms, dining rooms, sitting rooms and also personal cleanliness, but Leawood Manor gives more than the basic requirement. Staff are well trained and are true carers, they are always happy, smiling and have time for everyone, it is one big home. Should anyone ask for any suggestions to make Leawood Manor a better place I would be unable to give any since for me it has everything and gives everything. The residents are entertained by outside groups on regular basis. They have a café on the ground floor of the building where visitors can go for coffee. I could go on, Leawood Manor has given me peace of mind that mother is well cared for in every aspect and I find it a pleasure to visit. My thanks must go to Jeremy and his team for running what must be the finest care home ever.

Review of Leawood Manor

My mother's failing health meant that at some time we, as a family, we would make the decision for her to relocate to a care home. We took 'Healthcare for the Elderly' professionals' recommendations and visited Leawood. The Manager was brilliant (still is) and guided us through the process; Mum felt more at home after two respite stays and has now been a permanent resident for almost two months. Visually Leawood looks and feels 'right' as a venue but more importantly the residents are very peaceful, are safe and well cared for, despite most of them having Dementia to some degree. The staff are amazing and clearly do 'care' for the people in their charge and the management ensures staff development takes place on a regular basis. All the rooms I have visited have been more like that of a 4 star hotel and the food is nutritious and of a very high standard. It has the 'feel' of a family with the staff and residents all being part of that dynasty. Whilst initially I had 'fears and concerns' over my mother going into a Care Home; I have no issue in recommending Leawood where people not only care for Mum but treat her as an individual with dignity and respect- we have recommended it to others and only this week a friend's mother has moved in – thanks to all at NG2 6HT.

Review of Leawood Manor

I would certainly recommend this home. My uncle moved into Leawood Manor in November 2012 and from day one the care and understanding he was given helped him to settle, it's now lovely to see him smiling and interacting with both staff and residents.   The facilities are good and the food is excellent, family members are encouraged to engage with staff and play an active role in the care of residents.   The atmosphere within Leawood Manor is very good and the open door approach shown by the Manager cascades down through all the staff. When visiting my uncle, I am always made welcome and kept informed of any concerns which are addressed in a speedy and sensitive manner.

Review of Leawood Manor

Leawood Manor has cared for my mother on a permanent basis for two years five months. In all that time she has been well cared for. The home is spotless and the staff very approachable, and keep me well informed. A friend has already taken her father into Leawood on my recommendation and I wouldn't hesitate to pass my thoughts on again to others.

Review of Leawood Manor

From the moment I walked into the home it felt 'right'. My Dad receives wonderful care, the staff are fantastic. They also provide a shoulder to cry on when things get to me. Their support is invaluable.

Review of Leawood Manor

The words 'care home' can conjure up all kind of horrors, go into Leawood Manor and your fears and concerns will be banished. Our mother who suffers from dementia has been a resident for over 2 years. We feared the worst when the time came for her to be taken into care but we need not have worried. Mum is happy and very well cared for and as visitors we are always welcome. The facilities are very good and the staff are caring and mindful of mum's needs. The home has a good atmosphere and from the manager down it is obvious that they have both pride in their work and dedication to supporting their residents.

Review of Leawood Manor

I moved my gran to Leawood last November and from my first meeting with Jeremy I knew my gran would be cared for. All the staff are friendly and caring, not only towards my gran but to me also. They always have time to keep me up to date and a shoulder to cry on when needed. I see gran most days and whatever time I go standards are the same. Gran is bedridden now, but she is obviously changed, washed and cared for all of the time. I cannot praise the staff or the home enough, they are brilliant, especially Jeremy, Joe and Julie, just to mention a few.
