Review of Anglesea Heights Nursing Home

The care my mother got was second to none. The staff were all ways happy and welcoming when ever we visit: you could see the staff cared for mother when they treated her all ways finished the treatment with a kiss. It did not matter how busy they were we were always offered a cup of tea. I can not express enough how kind they were. I would recommend the home to anyone its first class. Mother has passed away now but I still go to the home as it was a big part of my life. Thanking the staff once again.

Review of Anglesea Heights Nursing Home

The dedication of the staff at this nursing home is outstanding as is their thoughtfulness, caring, understanding and love for their job. I could not, or would not want my dad to be anywhere else. Nothing that the residents require is too much trouble for them, they say it's just their job but it's more, much more than that. The level of care is very high, it is a happy relaxed and enjoyable place to be, and the entertainment and activities are very well thought out and catered for them. A thank you to the staff is an understatement.

Review of Anglesea Heights Nursing Home

It was a worry choosing a home but this was wonderful. An excellent, caring atmosphere with friendly, helpful staff who always found time to talk and give support. Very impressive - all residents were happy and well cared for. Harold was very well looked after and was at peace whilst there. The nursing home is also just round the corner from a very good pub (excellent beer and food) so that visitors can pop out for lunch. A good place for someone to be at the end of his life.

Review of Anglesea Heights Nursing Home

The dedication of the staff is second to none, nothing is too much trouble. They are always cheerful and ready to help in any way they can. There are always activities to stop the residents getting bored and general cleanliness of the rooms is first class. I would not entrust my wife to any home unless I was completely satisfied and felt that she was getting the best possible attention both physically and medically. The home is an outstanding example of perfect care for those needing it most.
