The Sycamores

My friend Ron has been in the Sycamores since Jan 2014 after loosing his left leg. It was not easy at first because he was a very proud man but with the care and friendship of staff who made the transition possible. One of his main concerns was that he did not see the morning sun, and when it was possible to move the manager helped the move herself. Now 12 months on he is very settled because the manager and staff give him his independence when it is possible.

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.

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.
