Review of Durban House Nursing Home on Friday 20 June 2014 by Pat O (Wife of Resident)

I would most definitely recommend this care home to anyone. My husband has been a resident here for seven months and because I haven't experienced a care home I wondered what it would be like. Having read a lot about bad care homes in the press, I was apprehensive, but I have only praise for this care home. The staff are without exception fantastic. The food provided is excellent and the care provided first class. If at any time I need the facility of a nursing home, this is definitely where I would want to be.

Review of Durban House Nursing Home on Wednesday 18 June 2014 by Linda Smith (Daughter of resident)

My father has been at Durban for nearly three years and we have been able to voice opinions and suggestions without feeling awkward. The home feels like a home not clinical where you feel intimidated. They are so happy and helpful, as they are dealing with personality disorders, dementia, strokes which can be so hard at times, for all concerned. I recommend them if you want a home from home feeling. Nothing is too much trouble.

A very caring home feel to the house, with gentle, kind and patient staff who always make time to support if required. I've never spoken to any staff member without being greeted with a happy smile.

Review of Durban House Nursing Home on Thursday 9 January 2014 by Dianne (Relative of resident)

Although my 90 year old very frail father was only at Durban House for 6 months, the care and attention he received from all the staff was exemplary. It gave us total peace of mind knowing that no one could ask for any thing better in the final stages of life. Would we recommend...most definitely, without question! Thank you one and all.

Review of Durban House Nursing Home on Tuesday 14 August 2012 by Susan and Lesley (daughter of two residents)

Durban House provided excellent care for both of our parents. It is a caring, thoughtful nursing home whose staff genuinely care for the residents. It is well kept with a stunning garden and the food is home cooked and targeted to appeal to the residents - the cakes were particularly appreciated by our father. We would both recommend Durban House without hesitation.
