Holly Lodge was recommended to me and my mother has lived there for over 2 years. She is treated with dignity, thoroughly cared for and all needs met. The staff are all very friendly and professional. I couldn't ask for more for my mother who has Alzheimer's and she is as happy as she can be with her illness. I thoroughly recommend.

Holly Lodge Nursing Home

After viewing a number of care homes in Surrey, for my 88 year old mother with dementia, it was clear from the outset that Holly Lodge was the best for mum by some way. As soon as I drove onto the site it was clearly set in beautiful surroundings of an extensive woodland. The quietness of the setting was then added to by the feeling of tranquility when I entered the home and met the staff. The size of the home (60 residents) on two floors is a perfect size for mums condition and the level of nursing & support staff far exceeded other homes I have seen. In the short time I have visited it is clear the home is right for mum.

Our cousin was a resident at Holly Lodge for over 4 years. We were always impressed by the exceptional care she received. Our visits were not announced in advance but we always found her to be clean and comfortable even in the later stages when she had to be nursed in her bed. Her nails and hair were clean and tidy and her skin obviously received special care to keep it in perfect condition. She was always treated with kindness, respect and dignity and as visitors we were always made very welcome. The home itself is delightful- bright and airy and well kept. The rooms are of a good size and well appointed and the grounds attractive. The atmosphere is one of kindness. Special mention must be given to the staff whether nursing or admin for their ability to combine efficiency with care and respect. We cannot recommend Holly Lodge highly enough.

Holly Lodge Nursing Home

In late 2013 the family embarked on finding a care home for my father. We visited numerous care homes in the area. Looking for the best available to care for my father, who had recently been diagnosed with Vascular Dementia. When I visited Holly Lodge I could not believe what I was seeing, first impressions were brilliant. I contacted my sister and brother to get them to view the home, their reaction was the same as mine. we arranged for my father admission. 18 months on and our decision was correct. The staff soon got to know my father who doesn't like noise and wants to stay in his room. This did not matter, "Can't take dad to the function, O.K bring the function to him". The care and treatment provided is second to none, all staff from the cleaners to the Registered Nurse frequently call in and interact, activities visit him every day. Family visit 3/4 time a week. Dads Quality of Life has vastly improved over the last 18 months, I cannot recommend Holly Lodge enough.

Holly Lodge Nursing Home

Having looked after my mother for several years at home having a good understanding of Alzheimers and its stages, I know that my mum is in the best possible place that she could be and that's at Holly Lodge. We have experience of other homes that just can't compare. I am particularly impressed with all the long term staff, gardener, maintenance staff, nursing and care staff, kitchen, laundry staff and the management. I am always kept informed of mums wellbeing and have great confidence that mum could not be better looked after with dignity at all times. The whole atmosphere with the carefully selected staff gives Holly Lodge a family feel which is extremely comforting to know when I am not there. Holly Lodge is truly and excellent home.

Holly Lodge Nursing Home

My mum (Ann Abrey) had been staying at Holly Lodge for almost 5 years and within that time mum had progressed through the dreadful disease, Alzheimer's. At every stage of mum's disease, the staff were always to caring and understanding and made mum's time at Holly Lodge a very pleasant one. The staff were always so happy and approachable and I would even go to say that I have myself made some friends that I will never forget. The home has always been very clean and tidy with regular decorating going on. Not only is there a lot of of respect for the residents, but the grounds and home have that same level of respect. I would most definately recommend Holly Lodge and the wonderful staff. When ever mum was poorly, no matter how small that may be, the staff always kept me informed. Unfortunately mum took a turn for the worse at Christmas and sadly passed away on the 10th January 2015. The staff have been amazing and kept mum comfortable and retained her dignity right up until the end. Thank you so much to everyone at Holly Lodge who made mum so very happy and so comfortable for the last 5 years of her life. We shall never forget you xx

My father has been in Holly Lodge for 5 years - all the nursing staff have been professional, cheerful and so caring. Their nursing skills have been very high - as dad's health has deteriorated and he has become bed-bound, he has been turned regularly so no bed sores have developed; and such care and patience shown in feeding and hydrating him. All the support staff, from cooks and handyman to OTs are always so polite and cheerful, and look after the family too.

Holly Lodge Nursing Home

Following a disastrous stay in a previous care home, we were keen not to make the same mistakes again. We couldn't have chosen better than Holly Lodge. The home is purpose built, light, bright and modern. As a family, we were always welcomed with a hello and a smile from whoever we met when we came through the door – from kitchen staff to management, and we experienced this pleasant atmosphere as constant throughout the home. The staff were unfailingly kind and caring where my mother in law was concerned, even when they were clearly very busy. When we visited and sat in the lounge, we were constantly reminded by activities around us, that staff were carrying out difficult tasks with residents who were at times very challenging, and we were impressed by their never-ending patience, kindness and good humor. The staff clearly care about the residents well-being. She was always impeccably clean and well-dressed (right through to make-up!). There was never a whiff of incontinence throughout the home! If there were any changes in her state of health we were always contacted. We were touched that 2 members of staff even attended her funeral. Dementia is horrible for the person with the condition and, as we know, for families to witness. The best we could hope for was that during the last months of her life she would be comfortable and cared for with kindness, respect and dignity in pleasant surroundings. We feel this was achieved in abundance at Holly Lodge.
