Review of Barchester Lynde House Care Home on Wednesday 12 March 2014 by Sarah V (Daughter of Resident)

We are very grateful to Lynde House for coming to our rescue under very difficult and unexpected circumstances when both parents had strokes 5 days apart. The hospital would not release them back to the own home. The staff have all been very supportive and helpful in this difficult situation for which we are extremely grateful. We would recommend this nursing home to anyone without hesitation.

Review of Barchester Lynde House Care Home on Friday 5 October 2012 by Josephine H (Daughter of Resident)

My mother has been here for 6 1/2 years and I feel it has prolonged her life. She is now 104 1/2 years old. The staff are all very caring. The management is very good and deal with any issues or problems swiftly and efficiently. The order and cleanliness of the home is 100%. The food is varied and interesting. They organise things inside the home and outdoors to in the summer, to suit all tastes.
