Exceptional care and love has been shown to my mother throughout her stay at Lashbrooks. Activities are lovely and staff get involved with the residence.
The support we as a family have been given this Christmas as my mum passed away has been phenomenal.
Thank you to everyone at Lashbrooks. My mum's 3 and a half years with you have been exceptionally happy.

Following a long period of complex health issues my Father required 24 hour nursing and assistance for all of his care needs, we required assurance all of his care needs would be met through effective communication, 24 hour nursing care, and access to Medical professionals if required, whilst living in pleasant and clean environment. Lashbrook House provided us with all of my Father's practical requirements with the addition of the 'personal touch'. All of the staff that I came in contact with were caring, professional, and empathetic. My father was treated with the utmost respect and dignity at all times and he appeared comfortable and peaceful during my regular visits to the home. The Home Manager communicated with me regularly of any changes and provided me and my family with the support required during what was a difficult period. I believe staff to be trained to a superior quality to deal with physical and cognitive impairment evident through the care my Dad received. I would like to thank the Manager and all staff on behalf of my Dad for making him feel 'at home' during his end of life.

My father is always content when we visit. If he was unhappy it would be evident. Staff are always knowledgeable about how he is. I am notified if any changes in his condition. We are always welcomed when we visit. I feel comfortable that he will be well looked after when I leave him. This is no small thing as I have not always felt so comfortable in previous establishment Dad has been resident in. I am delighted with the care he receives at Lashbrook.

The catering is of a good standard with the chef discussing and providing a good menu. The maintenance team have hung pictures, corrected tv service and always on hand to help with any problems. Good facilities, hairdressing, chiropodist and trips out.

My mother has lived at Lashbrook House for the last year. During that time she has improved and become settled and happy there. The staff at the home are excellent and my mother is cared for very well. The staff are professional and friendly forming good relationships with the residents and their visitors. Residents are encouraged to join in organised events and made to feel a part of a family, we would not want mum to be anywhere else. This opinion is endorsed by my sisters.

My mother has been at Lashbrook House for nearly a year and in that time she has flourished. The staff and management are all very attentive and considerate to her and to us as a family. The residents are extremely well cared for and they are encouraged to join into a variety of events that are laid on weekly. We wouldn't want mum to be anywhere else.

I want to congratulate the team at Lashbrook House for such an enjoyable Summer Fete held there on Sunday 24th August 2014. The BBQ was delicious, the entertainment was toe tapping and I would see staff, residents and family of residents all having a good time. My dad thoroughly enjoyed himself. Thank you!
