Review of The Aldbury

From the very first visit to view the home we have had nothing but positive and outstanding help from all the staff from the Aldbury. The transfer of mum from the hospital in Dorchester to the home went very smoothly and mum has settled very well. A big thank you to staff who share photo's and new on mum to the family in Australia. Nothing is to much for anybody at the home. Thank you very much. Outstanding care home.

Review of The Aldbury

Since my husband has been a resident at The Aldbury, his health has improved and settled in so well. Owing to the wonderful management, the care and support of the carers and staff who also support me. There has been a considerable change in him, smiling and content living in a very warm homely atmosphere. His personal care is amazing, nothing is too much trouble. The nursing staff will always answer any questions and put your mind at rest. I regard myself very lucky as he has gone from home to a happy home again. I highly recommend The Aldbury.

After mother having been in 2 other homes, this is by far the best to meet her varied needs. It is spacious and resident's wishes are usually met.
