Review of Holly Lodge Nursing Home on Friday 4 April 2014 by James D (Son of resident)

My mother has been a resident for about two years and I have been extremely pleased with this choice of home. The staff are very kind, patient and caring, and they skilfully deal with sometimes difficult behaviours of residents. Cleanliness is excellent, rooms are comfortable and the food is excellent, drinks/snacks are regularly served.

Review of Holly Lodge Nursing Home on Tuesday 29 October 2013 by Elaine Falkner (family of recently deceased resident)

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.

Review of Holly Lodge Nursing Home on Wednesday 2 May 2012 by Maureen Kelly-Smith (Daughter of Resident)

Caring staff and management, eg: keep in touch and informing relatives of any changes, attending hospital with residents. All staff are very kind and treat residents as individuals, and acknowledge and treat them as if they were their relatives. My mother is totally deaf, as well as having vascular dementia, which makes her difficult to communicate with, but they understand her needs, and have successfully made her very happy and contented in the 18 months she has been a resident.

Review of Holly Lodge Nursing Home on Monday 30 April 2012 by Norman L (Husband of Resident)

It is noticeable that all the staff, management, nurses, carers, catering, cleaning and maintenance, care deeply for the residents. My only thought for improvement is that there could be more 'activity' staff, but remembering that this is a home for dementia cases, they would have to be on a one to one basis throughout, which is out of the question. I have difficulty in keeping my (chairbound) wife awake during my daily afternoon visits, whether talking or playing her favourite DVD's (musical and comedy). She cannot be persuaded to play cards or board games. The overall staff attitude makes it a home that I have no hesitation in recommending.

Review of Holly Lodge Nursing Home on Wednesday 25 April 2012 by Sheila D (Wife of Resident)

Staff are very friendly, with both patients and relatives. They will also hug or cuddle someone who is obviously upset and calm them down, there is no shouting or anger. Rooms are all en-suite and regularly cleaned and polished. There is a regular GP visit, also a chiropdist, optician and hairdresser regularly attends, and nail polish applied if ladies require it. The grounds are lovely. Drinks are regularly given, no dehydration here! Occupational therapists are lovely. Easter, Christmas etc is always celebrated with pictures on walls etc.

Review of Holly Lodge Nursing Home on Wednesday 25 April 2012 by Arthur B (Husband of Resident)

After a fall at a previous home my wife spent 8 weeks at Frimley Park Hospital with a broken hip. After the operation my wife has been unable to walk, and spent weeks on a drip feed because the staff had no idea how to treat elderly people. On transfer to this home and the homely atmosphere of her room, within half an hour had eaten a full meal with sweet. The care in the last 3 years has been wonderful and the staff excellent. We hope to celebrate 70 years of marriage in June.
