Review of Galsworthy House Care Home with Nursing on Tuesday 28 May 2013 by Geraldine H (Daughter in Law of Resident)

My mother in law has been in Galsworthy for four years. I can't praise the care and attention she has been given enough. The staff are extremely approachable and friendly. She is very frail but the nursing care is excellent.

Review of Galsworthy House Care Home with Nursing on Tuesday 28 May 2013 by Trevor J (Husband of Resident)

My wife has been here now for four years. I go to see my wife almost every day as I live almost 100 yards from Galsworthy House. My judgement is that it would be difficult to find better accommodation and care like she gets here.

Galsworthy House can be recommended in every way. There was a high ratio of RNs to assistants. Care by RNs and Assistants was always provided without delay as gently and efficiently. Moreover, the medical care was excellent.

The staff are always friendly and helpful. They look after my father with care and concern and treat him as an individual. His likes and dislikes are considered. If the family have any problems concerning his care, these are addressed and sorted out speedily. Father is content and happy, well looked after and safe.

Review of Galsworthy House Care Home with Nursing on Friday 19 October 2012 by Ruth S (Wife of Resident)

The staff are very kind but there are not enough of them. It is a very comfortable home and my husband, who has dementia is reasonably content there. I visit for four to five hours each day, as he feels lonely if I do not. It could easily be prefect if there were more staff, as it is one carer per four patients.
