Review of Bridge House on Wednesday 12 February 2014 by David Beames (Son of resident)

My mother has resided here for 14 months. She appears to be contented and well. All aspects of her care are catered for very well. The attitude and efficiency of all staff has been first class and our questions/queries are answered promptly and sympathetically. Overall, a nice home, well run.

Review of Bridge House on Tuesday 28 January 2014 by Ian Crossley (Nephew of resident)

My aunt was only in the care home for a short time before she passed away. The way the staff looked after her during that time I could not have asked for anymore. They involved my aunt when they could, but also made her comfortable and at ease during her last days. They also helped me & the family during this time, they could not do enough for you. They were wonderful.
