Abbey View Nursing & Residential Home

My mother (Mrs Mildred Kerr) was a resident at Abbey View for 10 years (2003-2013) during which time I visited her every afternoon unless I was away. She was very content - no one at her extreme age (she was 106 when she died) can actually be 'happy'. She received excellent care - in the true sense of the word - and her death, through natural causes, was dealt with extremely sensitively. In all the time she was there, I never heard any member of staff speak impatiently or unkindly to anyone. There was a loving and caring atmosphere at all times - thanks to matron Jo Ellis.

It's the right size and location for Sherborne. Parking is limited, a small but pleasant garden. It is well run by staff with senior and young people, a relaxed ambiance.

Abbey View Nursing & Residential Home

Well run and established standard. The staff were all unfailingly kind, smiling and caring. We liked the relaxed unregimented atmosphere where friends/relatives could visit as the wanted. The meals were a little disappointing due to kitchen refurbishment. Telephone in each room would be a major improvement. Respite care was received with gratitude.

I would not hesitate to recommend Abbey View in every way, but in particular for the care and compassion that is always shown to the residents by the staff, and their attention to the specific needs of individual residents. The staff are unfailingly kind and helpful, to visitors as well as the residents.
