The Old Rectory

My father required residential care as he developed dementia. It was really really hard for us during that time as we felt a little isolated and unsure of how things would work out. We were given a list of care homes to visit by social services. We visited a number of homes in the space of around a week or so. That was when we went into The Old Rectory Care Home the atmosphere was so relaxed. We met the manager and I found myself really telling him how hard I had been finding the decision as it was going to have such a big impact on my fathers life. He reassured me and he told me to use my heart as good care can be felt. He explained that you can feel a care home and when you enter a facility that looks after people you can tell within around ten minutes what is like to live there. He was right I think. I decided that The Old Rectory Care Home would be a good new home for my father. I was blessed I think because you read some horror stories about care homes in the news papers. The staff that look after my father are so nice. When I come in to see him the staff are often sitting with the people that live there doing their hair or playing games. It feels like home to me. My father has had some ups and downs since moving into The Old Rectory Care Home but I'm pleased to say the staff have been exceptional. They take the time and have a calm approach to looking after people. They always seem so calm it's lovely. I walked past the manager and the manager was having a cup of tea with one of the other people that lived in the care home. I can see that taking the time with people is something the boss seems to do himself. I would recommend the care home it's a great place to visit and my father seems really happy there.
