When Mum arrived at Avon Lodge in 2009, she was greeted by Management and Carers who made her very welcome. The room was a good size, spotlessly clean, bright and cheerful and the meals were very good with a choice of dishes every day.
Entertainment was excellent, with something always going on; singers, organist, touch ā€˜nā€™ feel pet, trips to the beach and every year, Christmas had a programme full of events throughout December, Marcia and Jane done a wonderful job ensuring everyone was involved.
Management and Reception were truly 1st class and they quickly became our friends. We spent many hours with them trying to understanding the different stages of Mums illness and many times we would cry on their shoulders (sometimes we even managed to laugh) but regardless they were there for us ā€“ they were our rock and comforted us for 6 years.
Throughout Mums time at Avon Lodge, the Carers and Nurses were fantastic, (they truly, truly are special people) without doubt they treated our Mum with the greatest of respect and dignity and gave her so much love and affection. We always left feeling assured that Mum was content and safe.
Choosing Avon Lodge was the best thing we could have done for Mum and we cannot thank them enough, they are the most wonderful hard working people we have ever had the privilege to know. Thank you and God Bless you all.

What a lovely care home we choose for Dad a very well kept, clean and bright surroundings. We were always greeted by the office staff and management with a smile and often a chat. A care home with such a warm friendly environment. Outstanding staff always caring, respectful, polite and sensitive to Dad's individual needs as well as ours his daughters. A lot of thought went into the entertainment that was provided which was excellent. Good size room with tasteful decor. Good fresh home cooked food always a choice with every meal. Their end of life care was exceptional it was carried out with such respect, dignity and the with the greatest of care. Not only for Dad but for us his daughters.
