My father was diagnosed with a terminal conditional in mid April. The specialist suggested he would need to go to a nursing home or hospital. The staff and manager at Afton Lodge immediately said they would look after him there until his death. They did this superbly, with support from his GP and district nurses. Allowing him to stay in familiar surroundings with people he knew, until he died on the 12th of may. Their care for him and support to us was excellent, far beyond what we could have expected. We cannot thank them enough.

My Aunt resided at Afton Lodge for a number of weeks, you could clearly see a change in her appearance, health and well being. The staff were very kind, helpful and thoughtful ensuring she had all the attention required to support her stay. Reluctant to to into the home, on the day of her departure she was arranging to call back and visit. My Aunt herself complimented the staff especially as they allowed her Niece who is special needs to visit for the afternoon and have lunch together. I cannot fault the whole team at Afton Lodge and recommend their care to any prospective family in need of residence.

My mum moved to Afton Lodge after a stroke reduced her mobility. my mum is blind so it was difficult to settle. With the help of friendly staff who are caring and very supportive she has adapted to her surroundings. The quality of the management is reflected in the quality of the staff. If you want a home from home in a caring atmosphere this is the place.

I was scared coming here as I had not been in a care home before. I was greeted by the staff at the homes front door and I felt at home immediately. That feeling has stayed with me for the rest of my stay here. The care and attention I have received could not have been better and the choice of food (well cooked) was excellent. I would be happy to come back. Thank you
