Review of Avon Reach

Mum didn't attend the activities by choice but staff did take mum for a walk to the beach on a couple of occasions which she thoroughly enjoyed. Mum will be back when the need arises.

Review of Avon Reach

I have Parkinson's and therefore tend to fall or not be able to move due to muscle freezing, my right leg in particular. I need help to get out of bed, change 'pads', get washed, dressed, and taken downstairs in a wheelchair. I also have a lot of medication to take every four hours, which the carers are very good at giving me exactly on time.

Review of Avon Reach

My cousin went into Avon Reach during November 2012 unable to take care of herself, slightly tetchy. All the staff were excellent with her and worked really hard to prise her from her room. In May she suffered a stroke and became bedridden and unable to help herself in anyway. The staff whilst providing excellent care became her friends and most familiar to her. I could not fault the care of staff upstairs and down and they were with her when she died on 6th June 2013.
