Alderwood prides itself on the care and attention given to residents and their families. Carers concentrate on getting to know you and your loved one, enabling us to look after physical needs and more importantly delivering what emotional support you and your family need.

The team accept that choosing a care home is one of the most difficult decisions a family member or advocate can make and are here to help you through that decision, through the move in and beyond.

Excellent care is the key objective of each of the team members. Caring for those who can no longer look after themselves is what they do best, with an approach that takes into account that although there will be aspects of daily care and activity that residents could not manage at home, carers continue to encourage independence wherever possible - thus enabling residents to make the most of what they can do on a daily basis.

Freshly-cooked food allows the home to pursue sound nutrition and pleasant surroundings make Alderwood a satisfying residence in which to spend a retirement.

Carers support an active lifestyle alongside professional care part of their core mission, endeavouring to ensure that both residents and visitors enjoy their time spent at the home. Has all of the usual benefits of a care home, including en suite rooms, excellent communal spaces and areas for residents to enjoy quiet times.

Also offers excellent activities at the home, which offer stimulation and engagement to all residents. An activities co-ordinator works with individuals to ensure that they offer activities that will suit each person and sometimes this means that one to one activity is more appropriate than group activities.

The only comment I would make is more staff required. My mother was in a home previous to Alderwood, and there is absolutely no comparison. I am very happy I moved her to Alderwood!

My mother and stepfather became residents of Alderwood in Oct 2009. They were very happy and content and well cared for. Since my stepfathers death my mother has continued to be very well looked after and is settled. My partner and I always comment on the cheerfulness of all the staff and how they always treat every resident with respect. It is a credit to the management team that this has continued through a very difficult number of months for Alderwood.

I have found this home to be head and shoulders above others we have had experience of. The staff always have time for both the residents and visiting family and obviously take an interest in each individual. The great care mum receives is reflected in mums obvious well being and clean and tidy appearance. I would recommend Alderwood to anyone looking for good quality care from wonderful staff.
