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.

4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.
1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered beds. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered beds has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

Reviewer Connection to Alderwood
Submitted from a Postal Card by Lynne S on Thursday 7 January 2016. Relates to November 2015.
Alderwood has to be one of the best care homes. My mother was in a poor state of health when she went there and with the excellent quality of care she received from all the staff she very quickly improved. Staff treat all residents with dignity and care as if they are their own family. Nothing is too much trouble and they are always courteous to family members. There are no specific times to visit which is always a good sign as family can visit at anytime. I cannot recommend Alderwood more highly. It is a super place.
