Review of The Sycamores on Friday 28 February 2014 by Judith Price (Daughter of Resident)

Marjorie lived at the care home April 2007 until she died Nov 2013. Although she had alzeihmers in the early years she enjoyed good physical health, the meals and activities. Staff treated her very well, they were cheerful, kind supportive lovely people encouraging her to socialize with other residents. The atmosphere was calm and pleasant int eh main lounge. Evening functions, party style with buffet meal and excellent entertainers. Marjorie was happy she liked the carers and they liked her. Thank you very much.

Review of The Sycamores on Tuesday 26 November 2013 by Lorraine Lane (Daughter-in-law of resident)

My own mother was in a few different care homes, they weren't a patch on The Sycamores. It is so clean, up to date well decorated. No bad smells at all. Staff exceptionally nice and caring and helpful. I think this is an outstanding home compared with others I have seen. Its a real pleasure to visit my mother-in-law. How I wish my mum had been here.

Review of The Sycamores on Friday 7 June 2013 by Susan Gunter (Daughter of recently deceased resident)

Mum was very ill and unable to do anything in the last few months of her life. The dedication, care and love that was shown to mum by all the staff was over and above anything we could have wished for. As a family it was comforting to know that mum was safe and being looked after in the way that she was.

Review of The Sycamores on Tuesday 19 March 2013 by Pamela W (Daughter of Resident)

The manager and staff do their best to make the new residents feel so comfortable and home from home at a very vulnerable time for them. Also they include the family at all times with decisions and celebrations. They are kind and courteous and do their best to keep everyone happy. You do not get this in all care homes.

Review of The Sycamores on Thursday 14 March 2013 by Kathie L (Daughter-in-law)

My mother-in-law moved to Wakefield and the Sycamores, after her husband died. She was immediately made welcome and encouraged to feel at home, the staff rapidly understood her specific needs e.g puree diet, hearing aid and acted upon the information. They were kind gentle and patient. As she approached the end of life they were compassionate and very caring, the Sycamores gave quality to the last 9 months of her life.

Review of The Sycamores on Monday 4 March 2013 by Karen C (Daughter of resident)

My mother lived at The Sycamores for 9 months. She settled in very quickly and soon won the hearts of all the staff. She was happy and content and very well cared for during her time there. The staff showed her respect, kindness and affection - she was part of their extended family. I can't praise the care she received highly enough. Many, many thanks.
