Always a positive atmosphere. Staff are very professional, they show a great respect to the residents. I feel the staff try there best to meet the needs of my relative, with that in mind , staff providing a top all round care. My relative was in sad stage, when he arrived to this care centre. Only a few weeks down the line we could with great joy see a massive positive change. My relative shows that he is in peace and is letting us know that he is treated well. Place is clean, well kept. Surroundings are beautiful, peaceful and full of nature.

My mum was in Abbotsleigh and was extremely well looked after. The staff were friendly, caring and welcoming. My mum was checked on regularly throughout the day and night and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The food was lovely and if any of the family visited a meal times they were also offered a meal so they could eat with my mum. My mum was extremely happy in Abbotleigh and treated with dignity at all times.

Welcoming
From the day my father arrived at the care home he has felt completely safe and at home. His feelings about a care home were negative a few months before but since he has had to go there he has settled with the help of extremely caring staff. He is always commenting on how spoilt he feels and loves all the attention. Whenever we visit we always find all the staff to be very attentive and friendly. Abbotsleigh was certainly the best choice for my father. What could have been an extremely unsettling time for my father and our family, Abbotsleigh have made the transition all the more easier. Thank you.

Continue with the excellent work already being carried out. The residential area has obviously been given considerable thought as it is well laid out with staff able to control all aspects from their location. Seats are arranged logically and able to accommodate all the residents requirements. Visual aids are located strategically so all have access to them. There is ample space for individual or communal activities. Staff are very dedicated, compassionate, professional and efficient.

This care home has my full support with nurses on site, doctors visiting weekly and are on call if needed. The management is very professional, the rooms are light and airy and my wife has been in the home over 7 years, the last 4 confined to her bed and during that time I have never smelt any bodily odours. Music is generally playing in the lounge and their is a sense of warmness as you enter. The care staff are NVQ qualified.

Wonderful place
Placing my Mum in care was the hardest thing we have ever done, but over the past 3 years every time we visit we have been so relieved to see how settled she is in her environment even though she doesn't remember where she is or how long she has lived there. She looks happy and healthy and has been treated so well by each and every member of staff. A special thank you to the sisters who are friendly, informative, and so very patient. A huge thank you to each nurse who I have seen over the years take time to treat each resident with respect and professionalism. You have made a very emotional time easier for me and my family, you are such a blessing to me and my Mum.

Abbotsleigh is set back from the road amongst trees on the outskirts of Staplehurst. The care provided to residents is excellent and staff are both professional and approachable. There is good communication between management and relatives including regular bi-monthly formal relatives meetings. So I have no hesitation recommending Abbotsleigh Care Centre.
