Reviewer Connection to Preston Private Nursing Home
Submitted from a Website Submission by Rhiannon W on Thursday 15 October 2015. Relates to October 2015.
My mum has been in Preston Private for three years and has been very happy. She was unable to cope at home (she was not eating or washing and could not make decisions) and I feel she has made friends and has a much better quality of life than she would have at home with carers popping in. This was tried and did not work. The staff are all lovely and welcoming and genuinely care. They are also approachable. There are lots of activities in the home and her room is lovely. It is a pleasure to visit and guests are welcome any time.
The nursing care my father got in PP for the last year of his life (three years ago) was also excellent with the staff on both sections working together so mum and dad could share a twin room. Dad was transferred from another home especially so they could be together and this was beneficial for both of them and lovely to have them back together. Dad had been in care for many years before due to encephalitis and dementia.
