I find the house alright. I'm happy with my room. The staff are lovely and look after me very well. I feel that my opinion counts for something and I feel values. With my limited mobility the staff are always helping and assisting me so I'm included in all that is going on.

I came to visit my nan last month and staff asked if I could gill this out so I gladly obliged. I love the feel and warmth of this home and visiting my nan is always a pleasant experience. The staff are always so nice and ask us if we would like a drink. The home is very inviting and such a good atmosphere within the group of residents, it's like one big family.

In April 2015 we urgently needed to find residential care for my 90 year old mother who was increasingly unable to manage at home alone.
From our first contact with Cressingham House we have been very impressed with the level of care and support that has been provided.
Their focus is entirely on the wellbeing of the resident and their whole approach is tailored to addressing their individual needs.
In addition they keep us, the family, informed at every stage about anything at all that happens regarding Mum.
This is a great relief as we are all over 200 miles away and it is very reassuring to know that she is in such skilled, caring hands and that those looking after her really care for her welfare.

This is a very good care home with very good carers. The food is all freshly cooked with a choice of menu. It's the nearest thing to being at home.
