The Lawns Nursing Home

My mother who was wheelchair bound and later bed ridden, spent five years in The Lawns Nursing Home. During all this time I have never had cause for complaint against any person who was employed at this nursing home. All who came into contact and cared for my mother were very kind and caring, and in some cases were exceptional in their dealings towards my mother.

The Lawns Nursing Home

Ever since I came into the home everything has been just perfect. I have found the staff to be very friendly staff and the food is excellent. All my needs have been attended to in an efficient and professional way which helps me to feel very much at home here. I eat meals in my room and in the restaurant and enjoy both environments very much. I am a regular user of an iPad to talk with my family on a regular basis and having wifi in the room is a great asset.

Confidence
My elderly Mother has been at The Lawns for nearly two years now after being transferred from hospital with serious medical issues. First class nursing and care slowly bought symptoms and pain to a generally manageable and tolerable level. This has given her a quality of life, albeit limited, that we did not expect to ever see. The general day to day atmosphere is warm and friendly but at the same time respectful to residents individuality and privacy. Well done and thanks to all staff.

I cannot praise The Lawns highly enough. My mother was very malnourished in January 2013 when she became a resident. Since that time she has made a marvellous improvement. Her weight has increased significantly, her skin condition is 100% better and all pressure sores have healed. I am informed immediately if a G.P. is required to deal with a problem and I now have confidence that she is receiving the best possible care. The staff and nurses are wonderful!
