Review of Austenwood Nursing Home on Thursday 20 September 2012 by GB (Daughter of resident)
I was looking urgently for a nursing home for my mum when she was being discharged from hospital and had looked at a couple where I really didn't think she'd be happy. Then I rang Austenwood and, right from that first phone call, I felt welcomed and that everything would be OK. Mum has advanced vascular dementia and can no longer walk yet she seems happy and smiles far more than she has done for a while. The carers and nurses are all employed staff - they don't use agency staff who don't know the residents. Every time I see them with her, they are so gentle and friendly. There are activities and outings arranged for the residents and the home is in the process of being renovated and slightly extended. It's a small home with 20/25 residents so everybody knows everyone else. The owners are there most of the time and they, the matron, nurses & staff are all very approachable. All I can say is that, every time I go through the front door of the home to visit Mum, I get a feeling of happiness that I chose Austenwood as I'm sure Mum couldn't have a better life anywhere else.
