My partner was admitted to Chalfont Lodge for emergency respite as I had become unwell. His needs are complex and challenging and I knew would be a steep learning curve for any resident home. However Chalfont Lodge rose to the challenge and over nearly three weeks have worked extremely hard to meet his complex care. I am both extremely grateful and glad that the respite worked out. The staff are lovely and caring. We now have regular respite booked for the remainder of the year.

The home had a good feel about it when I first walked in. It smelled fresh and was very clean. The rooms were comfortable and well equipped for long term nursing care. The carers and nursing staff were very attentive to the residents needs. Nothing was too much trouble. I would have no hesitation to recommending it to anyone looking for nursing care for a loved one.

The improvement in my wife's health and well-being since she was moved to Chalfont Lodge 14 months ago after eight months in the hospital's spinal injuries unit has been significant. She really enjoys the setting and in warmer weather often sits out in the garden. Regular communal activities keep her mentally stimulated and she is very happy.

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.

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.
