Review of Northbourne

Our mum has lived here for four years now and has settled in well. We refer to the home as small and friendly because that is how we find it to be. We see at first-hand how well mam is looked after and all her needs. All the staff are compassionate, respectful, caring, sensitive, friendly and helpful. Mam has a pleasant en-suite room overlooking a wooded area filled with her memories and keepsakes. Mam enjoys the food, clean plates and loves a sing-a-long with her carers. Mam joins in with the various activities to her ability. A safe, warm, caring environment that means peace of mind to her family.

Review of Northbourne

I cannot praise the staff high enough. The home is excellent, the one thing that struck me when I was searching for a home for my aunt was the lack of urine smell at Northbourne which was present in all the other home I looked at so on that basis as well as the friendly, caring staff I chose Northbourne. The staff change the residents as soon as possible and clean up any accidents swiftly thus avoiding any smells. There are lots of activities going on and residents are encouraged to join in.
