Review of Country Lodge Nursing Home

Superb Care Home
My Step Father was only at Countrylode for a short period. Really pleased we chose this home as when you look at various options you don't know exactly what care they will provide. Really pleased with atmosphere and bright surroundings. The care provided was superb and staff really cared which was very moving. I cannot praise the staff higher enough with their passion and willingness to guage with residents and visitors.

Review of Country Lodge Nursing Home

This is a delightful, joyous sort of place. It is rare to find somewhere that exudes friendliness and happiness and a genuine spirit of kindly consideration towards all the residents, as this does. My wife Jennie has stayed for several 3 week spells of 'respite, so that I can get a break away without worrying about whether Jennie is being properly cared for. I am her full time carer and she is very dependent on quality care, as she is wheel chair bound, unable to speak even, needs feeding, personal care etc etc.

Review of Country Lodge Nursing Home

This nursing home provided excellent nursing, caring and all the staff were friendly, compassionate and efficient. The food was all home cooked, always home-made cakes for afternoon tea and well presented. Unfortunately, my cousin passed away last month, and the home have been very caring of me. I would be happy to recommend this home. The garden was well attended, making it attractive to look out onto.

Review of Country Lodge Nursing Home

From the moment that my wife and I first entered Country Lodge there was a different feel about it compared with other establishments we'd previously visited. It had a bright, friendly, feel about it and an optimism. Mum was at Country Lodge for four and half years before she passed away. The team looked after her wonderfully. Everyone would pop their heads round the door and take the time to talk with her. This ranged from the catering staff who would chat with her when wheeling the tea trolley round - to the senior nursing staff. Too many to mention, but thank you. Activities included ancillary support staff (Mo & Carol) visiting those residents who preferred to stay in their rooms, talking with them, playing quizzes and puzzles. Mum's care was excellent, there was little to fault. Nice touches such as a Christmas Carol Concert & a Summer BBQ add to the family atmosphere about the place. John (Owner) & Debbie (Manager) should be proud of the way in which they run the Home, the "Feel" to which we refer cannot be overstated.

Review of Country Lodge Nursing Home

My brother is suffering from Parkinson's and Alzheimer's which is quite a trial. He is looked after very well and is happy with the care. The nursing home is well appointed with long reaching views and a lovely garden. He is cared for very well and I have had no complaints at all. He is under the court protection so his care is paramount to all concerned.

Review of Country Lodge Nursing Home

My father suffered a stroke in February. We were recommended by a friend to view Country Lodge as the nursing care and facilities were supposed to be excellent. How right my friend was! My family and I have been very impressed with the level of care. The atmosphere is warm and friendly. The staff are very approachable. My father's health has improved so much that at 97 he's galloping around using his walking frame- a member of staff in attendance. I cannot speak highly enough of Country Lodge. This is the blueprint for care for the elderly.

Review of Country Lodge Nursing Home

I should like to recommend this nursing home where my mother has spent the past 7 years. She has complex needs (Parkinson's with dementia) throughout this time the staff have shown a high degree of professionalism and sympathy in the way they have cared for her physical and mental needs. They are always friendly and welcoming and allow me to share in my mother's care (as I visit almost daily). There is a most 'homely' atmosphere in this nursing home which is complemented by the most delicious home-cooked food.
