Excellent Care
My mother has now been in Chanters Care Home for 3 months after the realisation of not being able to manage in her own home any more. At first mum found it difficult to settle with the change, but now is comfortable and contented. The care and attention given to mum is excellent and the load on the family members is now quite low. Chanters has made life for mum and our family good again and I can't thank them enough for the care given.

The Chanters Care Home

I feel this home is very proactive in helping the residents to live a happy life. There are many activities for them to be involved if they wish and the staff are kind and generous when dealing with residents, they can be quiet if they wish and this makes a very friendly home.

The management and carers at The Chanters have worked extremely hard to help my father settle into the care home. He has always liked privacy and so this has made it particularly difficult for him. He has now adjusted a little better and, as his dementia worsens and he is bed fast, they have tried everything they can to make him comfortable. Ann, the manager, and the carers have friendship and care always on hand when he needs it. They have also a welcome smile for our family, making us feel welcome.
