Review of The Yachtsman

My long-time friend has been a resident for three years. She is now 94 years old, partially sighted and immobile. The care she receives is excellent; the staff are friendly and efficient. I have personally seen evidence of the care she and other residents receive and how tolerant the staff are with the more 'difficult' residents.

Review of The Yachtsman

It was a very difficult decision to make, placing a loved one in care. However we felt supported by the manager and team, who visited us first and let us have a trial period. From the outset the staff made him feel welcome (and us, also) The staff are very warm, caring and supportive and all residents are treated with respect and dignity. Relatives are also made welcome and are kept well informed. My uncle settled in quite quickly and always appears happy, content and well groomed. He has a good appetite and enjoys the food. In the afternoons they get freshly home baked cakes. I think he enjoys going out on the organised trips to shows and pub lunches. I am informed by the staff that he does although, sadly he doesn't remember them. I'm sure he enjoys them at the time! I have noticed that the staff give plenty of care and attention to all residents and assist those who do not eat and drink well. My uncles sister lives abroad and she telephones him once a week and the staff always make sure he gets the call. Nothing is too much trouble in making the residents feel at home. As my uncle says, "I have lots of friends here"

Review of The Yachtsman

I can easily recommend The Yachtsman, due to the obvious contentment of my Auntie and of the attentiveness of staff to the other residents which I observed during my visits. I have had another Aunt in another care home which was noticeably deficient by comparison. The intention of the staff to keep the residents happy and busy is the key differentiation.
