Thank you for your review. We really appreciate you taking the time to let everyone know how you feel.

My mother entered the above care home in May this year. I have found nothing but care and compassion and nothing is too much trouble. The staff are always on hand to discuss my mum and her needs. They welcome you at any time (except meal times). It has taken my mum a while to settle in but they have been patient and have encouraged her to talk about herself and her needs.

M Hanson, Director at Abraham House responded to this review on 17 Jul 2015:

Thank you for your kind comments - we work hard to do our best, so it is really nice to read your review. Until earlier this year we welcomed visitors at mealtimes but we now ask visitors to try to avoid mealtimes when possible. This is known as ‘Protected Mealtimes’ and there is a great deal of evidence to show that protected mealtimes provide lots of benefits, for example people eat better and recover from illness more quickly. The concept of protected mealtimes is supported by many organisations including the British Dietetic Association; The Patient’s Association; The Royal College of Nursing and the Royal College of Physicians. During protected mealtimes all interruptions are kept to a minimum, which contributes to a relaxed and calm atmosphere that gives residents time to enjoy and digest their food without distraction, whilst receiving whatever assistance they need to eat and drink. I hope this helps to explain why we prefer visitors to avoid mealtimes. Once again thank you for your kind words.

My Mum has been in Abraham House for just over 3 years, as I live in London it is extra important to me to know she is safe and cared for as I can only visit monthly. Mum is happy, well fed and content at Abraham House, whenever I visit she looks so well and I am able to call her twice a week and have a chat. The staff constantly keep in touch with me about her health and often send photographs of her enjoying the visits from singers to owl handlers. I can't thank the staff enough.

Abraham House

The standard of care provided at Abraham House is outstanding. The staff are well trained and very ably led under the guidance of the manager, Gill Saint. Many of the staff are long serving and there is a commitment to handle staffing shortages "in house" rather than by calling in agency staff. As a result, residents always have familiar faces around them. The atmosphere and environment provided is one of warmth, care and love in which the residents are treated with dignity and respect and as individuals in their own right, not as dementia sufferers. When needed, the "end of life" care could not be bettered. The physical environment is pleasant and standards of cleanliness very high. The standard and range of the food is excellent and special diets are well catered for. Relatives themselves are made very welcome, always kept fully informed and involved and are well supported in their own needs. All in all one could not ask for better!
