Austenwood Nursing Home

The process of selecting a residential home for a patient is probably one of the most emotionally changed decisions one will have to take in life. After visiting 13 different homes I didn't feel truly comfortable with any of them and thought I would just have to settle for a "least worst" option. Thankfully I was recommended to try Austenwood, and from the moment I entered the building, the quality and high standards of care made it stand out from the crowd. I am so happy to know that my Mothers last days were in the caring hands of this home.

The instant my sister and I walked into to Austenwood, we knew it was the right place for our terminally ill mother and her end of life needs. The staff were warm and friendly and nothing was too much for them to be asked. They provided us with a high level of support at a very distressing time and more importantly catered to our mother's needs with a very high level of professional care. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending Austenwood and are very grateful to them for everything they have done for our mother and for us.

Austenwood Nursing Home

My sister for has been a resident six years, double below knee amputee, insulin dependent diabetic, which needs careful management. Quite marked learning difficulties, she can be obstreperous, inappropriate and rude, to me as her only regular visitor, but also to staff. The staff are so patient and kind with her. I have never heard any member of staff raise their voice to her, even when she is extremely confrontational. They have hairdressing facilities plus a full schedule of activities and entertainments. I cannot recommend this home more highly.

Austenwood Nursing Home

Trying to find the right nursing home is not an easy task and if it is at all possible one should find a recommendation, this is how we found Austenwood. We wanted to find somewhere where our father would feel at home, be cared for, given respect, be sure and of course be happy. It is difficult to find somewhere that ticks all the boxes but Austenwood appears to be doing it all. The forward thinking of the Matron, Jeanette and her staff, help to minimise distress and accidents which of course happen quite a lot in nursing homes. There are lots of events for the residents and families and friends may also join in. The home is personal and we feel that the staff are very kind and caring. Our father has only been a resident for a couple of months but as of today, we would thoroughly recommend Austenwood.

Austenwood Nursing Home

Austenwood provides a friendly and caring environment for its residents and their families. The carers and nurses are caring and competent and are always very welcoming and willing to ensure the care they offer is of the highest standard. The recent work in extending the home was carried out with extreme care - both ensuring the minimum disruption to the residents and in making sure the facilities are of the highest standard. When we were looking for a nursing home, we spoke to and visited many. From the start Austenwood offered the best option. The emphasis is very much on ensuring each resident receives the care and attention they need. There are regular outings and events to which families are invited to ensure everyone feels involved and welcome.
