My 86 year old mother was admitted to the Isis following a break in her ankle. She lives on her own with the help of myself and carers, and would not have managed with the cast on. She has now had the cast off and is undergoing physio to hopefully enable her to return home. The Isis has been great in caring for her. They have kept me well informed about everything and she has been very content there. If there comes a time when she needs a permanent home care I would not hesitate to choose The Isis.

My dad has been at Isis Care Home in residential since Nov 2014. The staff are fantastic so caring and supportive in every way possible. They have a hard job looking after everyone but they always make time to listen to our concerns and act on them if needed. The activities staff are really wonderful encouraging residents in every way. It feels more like a holiday home than a residential one. Well done!

I came to take my dad to the pirate summer BBQ, I also took my mum most people dressed up and it was a marvellous day. The music was great. The BBQ was delicious. It was a beautiful sunny day. So I took my dad outside in his chair, it was lovely to see his hair blowing in the lovely summer breeze. But best of all was the fantastic entertainment team. Nothing was too much trouble, they knew all the residents names and were running around all day to give everyone a brilliant time.
