We would highly recommend Gleavewood to anyone. Fantastic care staff who recognise all your relatives needs and treat them as an individual. Mum was very happy in Gleavewood and enjoyed the company of all the other residents which is important, she particularly enjoyed the trip to West Kirby in July. Gleavewood has a lovely warm family atmosphere to it, as a family we thank you so much for all your care and it is with great sadness that mum has to moved into nursing care.

After looking at care homes for my mum I realise it is what is on the inside that counts. The difference at Gleavewood is the focus is on care. Julie runs a fantastic team of friendly experienced carers that know everything about my mum, and give her a lot of attention, on top of that she has two care leaders two administrative staff who are always helping out making sure everyone is happy, often walking mum to the shops. There is an activities co-ordinator leader, mum particularly enjoys the baking and quizzes.

Julie Gerrard and her team have gone to extraordinary lengths to accommodate my mother-in-law, both in day care and respite. We as a family are so grateful as without them we don't know how we would manage. My Mother-in-law has had respite at other care homes but always says she didn't like it and was very unhappy, but she has nothing but praise for Gleavewood. The home is very well run and all the staff are brilliant with the residents, nothing is too much trouble. They all work very hard and actually enjoy what they do and that makes a big difference. The food is of a very high standard and plentiful, the bedrooms are very clean and homely, always made to feel welcome. We leave my mother-in-law in a morning and collect her at night knowing full well she is well looked after, safe and secure but most of all happy. The greeting she receives in a morning makes her feel loved, always a cup of tea and biscuit offered to her. A first class care home, thank you from the Wood family.
