Review of King Edward Care for the Elderly

My father was in a care home for three years before moving to The King Edward Home. The difference in the two homes is amazing and in a short time we saw a marked improvement in my father. We are delighted with all aspects of the home and have peace of mind because he is being so well looked after. The King Edward is a real home; clean, well-decorated and welcoming. The food is home cooked and appetizing. The staff are caring and very friendly, creating a family atmosphere. Our family feel so lucky and fortunate to have moved dad to The King Edward Care Home and recommend it without reservation.

Review of King Edward Care for the Elderly

The home from home atmosphere in a small caring environment just right for my uncle. Caring staff who give individual attention. After care in the care home after a stay in hospital ensured uncle was upon his feet and back to the stage he was at before he went into hospital, something we didn't think was going to happen and we are very grateful for the care given to ensure he is back to a good state of physical health, thanks to the help of all the staff. He enjoys the social/music events and joins in. Always clears his plate at meal times!

Review of King Edward Care for the Elderly

During the last few years, myself and sister have placed our mother in six or seven care homes. Our experience has varied between average to abysmal. I bring theses experiences as a yardstick, I feel I am in a position to form judgement of performance of a care home. Whilst it is difficult to achieve perfection, by nature of the service, in my opinion, King Edward Care Home makes an effort to achieve this. They at least respect the individual needs of the service user, and take time to listen to any input we, as relatives, would care to discuss. Overall the standard of care is as high as I have personally seen.
