My brother passed away a year ago, but lived at Farway grange for about five years before he passed and I can say our family had peace of mind that he was being cared for by some very lovely people, who always treated him so lovely and friendly. He was not always the easiest of patients as he had Ms and slight dementia, but they were always so patient with him. We were, and still are so grateful for all they did for him and always tried to give him the best quality of life. Thank you again from all family. After his passing, the management and staff were so kind, I myself was unable to return to the home as I was so upset, so they kindly packaged his belongings up for us, and when my partner went to collect, they sat and had a coffee with him before he left. I can not recommend this care home more highly.

My mother was accepted at this nursing home after she was given notice by her previous care home. What a difference. This is a small home but that is homely, staff and management friendly and approachable and any problems or queries addressed professionally and quickly. My mother has been here 16 months and has settled well. I am confident my mother is well cared for and have no concerns for her wellbeing. When weather permits the garden area and large ponds offer a quiet area to enjoy. A safe and caring environment.

Recommendation of Farway Grange Nursing Home June - July 2014

After a couple of days of settling in mum told me "the staff are wonderful, nothing is too much trouble, & the food is good". We who visited were also well looked after, tea & biscuits always offered, we felt re-assured that mum was in safe hands. At the end the staff were always on hand but never intrusive on our private times with mum. She couldn't have been in a better place. The genuine care shown by all the staff made it so much easier for us.
