Review of Field House Nursing Home on Friday 18 July 2014 by Gabrielle T (Sister of deceased resident)

My sister was a resident at Field House for the last eight months of her life. During that time she was very well cared for by capable, kind and friendly staff. She was always well groomed and her clothes well looked after. She particularly enjoyed her time with the activities organisers. Until her illness took away her appetite, she found the food delicious. I, and her other visitors were always made to feel most welcome and at home.

Review of Field House Nursing Home on Thursday 17 July 2014 by Ian Rambart (Son of resident)

Mother was terminally ill when moved to Field House, but for the time she spent there she was treated as an individual, with care and respect. The employees always kept family members up to date with the latest position and always made us feel valued.

Review of Field House Nursing Home on Monday 19 May 2014 by Jane R (Daughter of service user)

My mother is very comfortable and has been treated with dignity since she moved into her room at Field House Nursing Home. She has very good nursing attendants who treat her with patience and the dignity that she deserves, as although she has a long term illness she is not always aware of her health conditions and whether she has eaten enough or not.

Review of Field House Nursing Home on Tuesday 3 December 2013 by Mary S (Husband of Resident 11 months (died 3/11/13))

Obviously it was an unhappy time as my husband, who retained his full mental facilities until the end, one by one losing his physical facilities. He frequently mentioned how kind the staff were; they were very friendly and supportive to me. The home is just being refurbished - I am sure the rooms will be excellent there.

Review of Field House Nursing Home on Monday 25 November 2013 by Gay Turner (Sister of resident)

My sister has been a resident at Field House for two months! I visit her several times a week and it is a pleasure to do so! Her mobility and general well being have improved greatly since she has been there. She much enjoys the excellent food and is well cared for. Above all, the staff are always most welcoming, friendly and happy to help with anything. I am able to rest assured, knowing she is in a good place.

Review of Field House Nursing Home on Monday 29 October 2012 by Simone Waller (Daughter of resident)

When my father came to field house we had been told that he had perhaps a few weeks to live. I can only echo the previous recommendation and hope that it helps anyone facing the daunting task of choosing a home for a relative. They were, for the four remaining weeks that he lived, beyond amazing. The consideration, standard of care and respect bestowed on both my dad and all the family was above and beyond the call of duty. I cannot praise the staff and management enough. We were welcomed, throughout his time there, as though it were our own home, I cannot stress enough how much easier the whole situation was made by the respect and kindness shown to both my dad and our family. We know that it is important to live well, but it is also a great comfort to all those concerned, to die well, and field house ensured my father had the opportunity to do both, and for that I am eternally grateful. I would encourage anyone who is struggling to make the difficult decision to choose the right nursing home for someone they love, to, if they find field house, stop looking any further. It is truly a home from home where you can rest assured that your loved one will be given all they need and more. They also make the most fabulous afternoon cakes!
