It's quite comfortable living at Cheverton Lodge. One misses one's home of course, but I feel safe here.

It's quite pleasant here to live. I like a good biscuit and you get plenty of biscuits here. I like trying to pick the visiting dog up by the belly but I don't think she liked it! She's a lovely dog. I enjoy listening to the music from musical shows. I do enjoy a nice cup of tea here.

I have been here for about seven months now I like going to the meetings like when the children come to work with us. I really enjoy going outside on my scooter. Considering how many people they have to cook for the food is pretty good. We have three meals a day. The staff must work really hard. My wife comes to see me nearly everyday but sometimes I tell her not to come. I realise you have to keep your sense of humour in here, everyone in here are in different positions but generally everyone gets along. We also go on trips every two-three weeks.

I take school pupils to visit the Cheverton Lodge residents and we look forward to our twice weekly visits. The pupils are treated so well, refreshments and always with a smile. Eva the manageress is fantastic; she is brilliant with the pupils and the residents. An excellent example of the brilliant care and atmosphere, yesterday was Ray's 79th birthday; we had a birthday cake, candles, singing and laughter, wonderful.

wonderful care for over 10 years

My mum was in Cheverton for over 10 years, she died on the 28th August 2014, she was cared for by the wonderful team led by Mary Rabbitte and Ntombe, she loved them all, we always turned up unannounced and at different times of the day, she was always happy and clean, and we were greeted by the staff like friends which we feel they were.

My Mother was a resident here from 2005-2006 sadly she passed away, but did so with great dignity and at peace all due to the wonderful care of the staff under the guidance/supervision of Mary Rabbit. General manager of Cheverton Lodge being a priest in New York USA, I have seen many homes but Cheverton Lodge exceeds all these. The residents are cared for with love and dignity.

I would recommend this home to anyone. Before dad went into this home I visited other homes and they were horrible. Thank god we found Cheverton Lodge. My father has been there for a few months now and settle. The staff are wonderful and work so hard. Nothing is too big for them to take on. I know I can walk in at anytime to see my father and always get a great welcome. Mary the manager has done a great job with this place and her team. I can go home and rest knowing dad is being looked after properly.
I felt we had won the lottery when we got a place at this home. I would recommend this home.
