Review of The Raycroft Unit

I cannot say enough positive things about this home. Martin and his team are a great credit to the home, always welcoming, a great atmosphere to walk into. The service users are treated with respect and I would not hesitate to recommend this home. I do feel the staff should receive the minimum wage which they do not receive. Think the owner should look at pay rises.

Review of The Raycroft Unit

They seem to really care for the residents, which can be hard to find nowadays. Even small things like conversing with residents can make a huge impact on the care provided. The unit itself is very cosy and homely, I think the fact each resident having their own bedroom/living room is such a rare thing to find. The staff deserve better pay, because as I mentioned its rare to find people that care and have the patience.

Review of The Raycroft Unit

My grandad is treated with great care, dignity and respect at The Raycroft Unit. The staff are friendly and caring and the food is excellent- home cooked. When I visit him he is always clean and well dressed and his room is always clean and tidy. He feels at home and is very happy and contented. As a family we could not wish for my grandad to be better cared for. I would and have recommended The Raycroft Unit as a great care home.

Review of The Raycroft Unit

The manager and staff have made Raycroft very comfortable and homely. They are patient, understanding and thoughtful and always ready to have a laugh or chat with residents. Residents have a choice at meal times and it is no trouble to provide something else instead. Care is taken in looking after their clothes and personal items. I am confident my mother and aunt are well looked after and safe 24/4. I would have no hesitation in recommending The Raycroft Unit.
