As soon as my husband came to Bayford House, we were well pleased with the reception and welcome we received. The nurses and carers are second to none, they cannot do enough for my husband and myself, the care for him is done well above the normal standard. He is very happy and has settled in well. After I leave after visiting, I go home knowing he is well looked after which puts my mind at rest, which I can tell you makes me feel good and unstressed. Please thank everybody concerned in looking after him.

The quality of care is exemplary and everything about this home is of a very high standard. The grounds are beautiful and it's a pleasure to sit there watching and listening to the variety of birds and small animals come into the park.

This nursing home is extremely good and residents are very well cared for and comfortable. The staff are very considerate and are able to find the time to talk to patients whenever they can. The residents have a good choice at mealtimes and are able to choose which meals they prefer.

I was advised to look at as many care homes as possible and that I would know the right one. The advice was correct! Bayford House stood out as the peaceful, stately place it is. Comfortable, homely, with quiet place in and out, but daily, very varied activities, both for individuals and groups. However the best vital aspect are the staff, kind, caring, professional, skilled and very, very hard working. Nothing is ever too much trouble, they gave my mum the care I couldn't and better than I could have done.

Our aunt Mrs Marion Smith moved into Bayford House from her support flat accommodation following a fall and a period in hospital. After the upsetting time following moving in she has settled in remarkably well and is very happy, staff look after her very well and provide all her needs. The food is very good with a wide choice. In conclusion Mrs Smith is 93 years old and cannot be looked after any more professionally.

From the moment we drove up the drive, and then spoke to the staff, we knew this was the home for Mum. She thought so too and helped us to choose the right place for her.
