The level of care, support and understanding at this home is amazing. It is a very difficult time when a parent has to go into a home but the staff have done everything to settle mum and make her feel welcome. I could not ask for more.

Staff that go way beyond what i would have hoped for. I have had a great deal of contact with residential homes in my professional capacity is it was great reluctance and trepidation i 'sent' my mother into a home. I live some distance away, every time I leave mum i feel confident and reassured she is being looked after as if she was one of the staff's family members. The unit manager and deputy are to be particularly congratulated. My mother would have died if not for them!

My mum has been at the home now for 5 weeks. So far her care has been excellent, nothing too much trouble. She is settling in really well, one or two hiccups at first but everything OK now. Myself and my family are really satisfied with her level of care. Thanks.

I am very happy I placed my father into this care home. The staff are excellent, the nurses are very aware of residents needs and keep in contact with me, when they feel I should be aware of anything. They are all friendly caring and thoughtful, as this can be difficult for families at this time. The food is always hot and well presented and fresh. The deputy manager in this care hone in Yeomans is very professional and helpful, and always has time for residents and family.
