Kestrel Grove Nursing Home

Since becoming a permanent Kestrel Grove resident in March 2015, my 92 year old father has enjoyed the best quality of life he could possible have at this time. His complex meds are well managed and his condition is carefully and sensitively monitored; he is treated with respect and genuine fondness by the excellent and caring staff (at all levels), at all times. The high quality of the environment including the cleanliness of rooms, the beautiful grounds, the fresh linen and flowers in the dining room helps to create a sense of pride in both the staff and the residents for whom they care. Activities are varied and regular, my dad especially enjoys the chair exercises, bingo and visiting singers; and more recently a great BBQ to which he invited me as his guest! Kestrel Grove is a family run business and many of the staff have worked here for over 5 years which I believe contributes to the consistency of care, as does the 'in-house' training (no agency staff are used). The owner, of whom the staff speak very highly, is on site during the week and is very involved with the day to day issues. Nothing is too much trouble here and every request is met with a smile - I would highly recommend this nursing home without reservation.

Kestrel Grove Nursing Home

I personally am really surprised Kestrel Grove isn't right at the top of the rankings on this website. My father received excellent palliative care there 18 months ago, for the last couple of weeks of his life. The staff were lovely and the grounds beautiful. It really helped us through the difficult time.
