Durban House Nursing Home

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.

Durban House Nursing Home

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.

Durban House Nursing Home

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.
