Review of Garth House Care Home with Nursing on Tuesday 28 January 2014 by Bruce Simpson (Son of Resident)

Staff are always polite and courteous, dedicated and compassionate. This includes senior management, nursing staff, catering department, events organiser, domestic staff etc. Since my mother Dinah Simpson has resided at Garth House 19/2/13 her quality of life has improved 100%. Not only are the residents extremely well looked after, I must say the same goes for the relatives and friends.

Review of Garth House Care Home with Nursing on Wednesday 12 June 2013 by Alfred George (Husband of resident)

My wife appears to be happy and contented here and gets on very well with all the staff members and they with her. They make sure she keeps all hospital appointments (I also travel with her) so her health is well monitored, which pleases me a great deal. Generally speaking I am delighted she is so well looked after.

Review of Garth House Care Home with Nursing on Sunday 16 December 2012 by Terence Street (Son)

Mother is very well looked after by staff, regular doctor visits, homely atmosphere, lovely surroundings. For example - she just celebrated her 90th birthday and she was presented with a beautiful bouquet of flowers and a birthday cake, complete with candles and it was brought to her with staff singing 'happy birthday' to her, which made her day!
