Within a very short space of time, my mother settled into Dormy House. She has a lot of positives to say about her new home. Dormy House has a lovely atmosphere and I'm very pleased that my mother is here. Everyone here is so helpful.

Excellent location. All the staff I have interacted with have been professional, polite and extremely kind and courteous to myself and Mr. Riggs (resident since Sept. 2014) During situations where there have been emergencies (with Mr Riggs) the staff at Dormy House have kept me constantly informed by tel/email etc. (Even when I was in Australia!) For relatives etc this is a most reassuring level of care, compassion and attention.

My friend has been in Dormy House for 4 years and has been very well looked after. The home has very good facilities and good regular activities. They organised a barbecue last week in the good weather which was much appreciated by my friend and she commented that the staff went to a lot of trouble to organise it. She has a nice room and the staff are always very pleasant and helpful when possible.

After my grandfathers stay here (and passing) my grandmother now needs some extra help after a hospital visit after a fall. Although a different part of Dormy House, the same exceptional service, friendly faces, kind carers are here. It made the decision for my Nan to stay permanently in a care home so easy having seen how kindly they nursed my grandfather. Hopefully she will have many happy years here!

Dormy House Care Home with Nursing

Dormy House is a fantastic care home. My grandmother moved in back in 2010 and settled so quickly thanks to the brilliant staff here. She now calls this place home. The meals are great and she thoroughly enjoys them. She loves going out on all the outings, especially to the river. The best decision we ever made was to move Grandma to Dormy House as we know she is safe, secure, and extremely happy. With this in mind we are so grateful to all the staff at Dormy House for what they have done for her.
