Review of Barchester Chalfont Lodge Care Centre on Tuesday 8 April 2014 by David Eldridge (Husband of Resident)

My wife quickly accepted that Chalfont Lodge was home after spending 8 months in the acute ward of the spinal injuries centre at Stoke Mandeville Hospital. The improvement in her general health following this transfer was marked and has been maintained ever since (now almost 1 1/2 years) and she is very happy in this setting. The level of care is as good as it gets and neither of us could wish for anything better in terms of nursing care and general welfare.

Review of Barchester Chalfont Lodge Care Centre on Tuesday 8 April 2014 by George de Beer (Husband of Resident)

Having to put your relatively young wife in a care home due to the early onset dementia is almost like bereavement. However, I now look forward to visiting my wife - quality time, walks, brilliant coffee and cookies - lovely scenery. The most wonderful thing is to know that your very vulnerable wife is well looked after and staff genuinely have a rapport with their patient. I visit my wife every day and can honestly say that she is so happy in her new home for the past 4 months. The staff in St Andrews need a medal - I never realised that a care home would be this compassionate.

Review of Barchester Chalfont Lodge Care Centre on Monday 3 December 2012 by Sara A (Daughter of Resident)

My mother has been at Chalfont Lodge for a month. My Mother is very happy here and has settled in very quickly. The dementia care is excellent, as are the carers who are very professional and kind. As a family we have had several other experiences of care homes over the last year, for respite care and the standards at Chalfont Lodge are outstanding compared to our previous experiences. Unfortunately we are no longer able to cope with my mother's care needs at home and have placed her in permanent care at Chalfont lodge. We are so pleased with the care she is getting here and are absolutely confident all of her needs are being met. It's a second home for my father who spends many happy hours with my mother in the care home and enjoying walks in the well kept grounds.

Review of Barchester Chalfont Lodge Care Centre on Monday 15 October 2012 by Jennifer Walden (Mother of resident)

My son has been at Chalfont Lodge for nearly eight years. The carers are wonderful, also the nurses go that extra mile to make sure my son is looked after in every way. Although he is unable to speak they always talk to him, he is always smiling. I always say I am so lucky to have him reside in this very caring home.

Review of Barchester Chalfont Lodge Care Centre on Monday 13 August 2012 by David J (Father of Resident)

My son has been a resident at Chalfont Lodge since June 2012, following a hypoglycaemic attack which left him severely brain damaged and unable to talk or walk. In the two years that have passed, my son has received all the Chalfont Lodge hospitality, care, attention and medical support which has made him a member of the Chalfont Lodge family. We also feel like members of the same family and we are pleased to visit our son on a regular basis.

My wife has been cared for at Chalfont Lodge since 2001. She has severe multiple sclerosis and is totally paralysed. I have had no complaints whatsoever in the 11 years that she has been there. The home is run in a very professional manner and the staff are excellent.
