King Edward Care for the Elderly

This is a small home ideally suited to the needs of my brother who can be a tad difficult at times. The staff attitude to my brother achieves the right balance of kindness and firmness. While I only see my brother 4 or 5 times a year (I don't live locally) he is compos mentis and would tell me of any problems.

King Edward Care for the Elderly

This is the third care home that I have put my father in and the best! The care is excellent. Although it's not the largest care home my father has been in, it's the best one that has given better personal care. When I visit my father he is always clean and tidy and well fed. The home is just like one big happy family and always there for you.

King Edward Care for the Elderly

having previously placed my mother in four similar establishments the Kind Edward home shines well above them all. When visiting mother I always find her clean and comfortable. A great deal of interest is shown to her and all other residents at all times. Any concerns as to her wellbeing is swiftly reported to a doctor. I am more than satisfied with the level of care an general running of the home.

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.
