Review of Catchpole Court Care Home

Catchpole Court does not have en-suites or posh furniture, but it clearly concentrates on what is the really important thing, and that is excellent care. There is a registered nurse there at all times that keeps tabs on each resident’s health on a day to day basis. All the staff seem very capable and committed, and interact well with the residents, so they contribute much more than just the physical care. Each resident is treated very much as an individual, with their likes/dislikes, interests, hobbies, etc taken on board. The food is ‘home cooked’ every day, it is good quality and nutritious, there is a good variety, and residents have a choice. This feels as much like a home as it could do for my dad, not an institution. There is a dedicated organiser of social events and activities. The home arranges outside care such as hairdressing and chiropody without the need for relatives’ involvement (except to pay the extra small charges). The rooms are nicely decorated, very clean and with adequate furniture and a basin, and they have a nice big window. The home does not smell! I believe that if you asked any resident, they would say they are happy there. I so appreciate the fact that the rest of my dad’s family can live our lives in the knowledge that he is being well cared for. Before he went there, I did not realise that such good homes existed. I am sure that my dad feels well cared for, valued and respected as a person, and safe. This really is an excellent care home for residents with dementia and/or with limited mobility and/or medical conditions. There are also some residents that do not appear to fit into those categories and who seem to be very happy. Please note that what I have said relates to Constable Unit, as I have no experience of Gainsborough Unit.
