Review of Tenterden House Nursing Home

I have been frequenting Tenterden House Nursing Home for the past few years. The home is eloquent and decorated to a high standard. The staff are always friendly and on hand to assist as and when needed. The food is excellent and there are often entertainers keeping the residents amused. All in all, the home is a wonderful place to stay either long term or short term, and the added beauty of the acres that the home sits in makes it a wonderful place to live.

Review of Tenterden House Nursing Home

The carers at this establishment are of a very high standard, they take time to speak to my wife and treat her very well. The facility is difficult for whellchairs as the corridours are narrow. Room choice is limited as hoists do ot fit into certain areas at the home. Activities seems a bit dated. Overall though, really very happy and may long it continue.

Review of Tenterden House Nursing Home

Tenterden House Nursing Home is truly excellent. It has a good atmosphere and is well managed. My wife is celiac. She always receives excellent and nutritious meals. She is wheelchair bound but this does not present a problem. The staff are friendly and caring. I can't imagine my wife would find a better place. Relatives are always made to feel welcome.
