The Aldbury

In August 2014, it was necessary to move my late mother to a specialist Dementia Care Home, and The Aldbury was mentioned to me. Right from the very first telephone call to the home to make an appointment to view, the subsequent meeting, and admission of my mother, I felt that she would receive the proper and professional care she rightly deserved. The moment you walk into reception, you are greeted with friendly smiles, and nothing is too much trouble. Every member of staff, from the youngest to the oldest, be they male or female, are there to make sure that both you and your loved one are treated with the utmost respect, care and dignity. Every resident is treated as an individual, and visiting there is a real pleasure. The facilities are second-to-none, it is exceptionally clean, and more akin to a 5-star hotel. Sadly, my mother, who celebrated her 100th birthday in November, passed away between Christmas and New Year, but I will continue to make visits to the home to see the special people who cared for my mother so wonderfully, and gave me, her sole relative, such complete peace of mind and support.

My mother has been in his home for more than four years now. We spent a considerable amount of time searching out what we considered to be the best home in the area. We have not been disappointed in any way and would recommend The Aldbury to anyone looking for the best care for a loved one!

Thoroughly recommended. My husband has blossomed since being under the care of the Aldbury, and as I don't get to visit very often due to personal circumstances. I know he is truly well looked after and I have no fears in leaving him in their very capable hands.

I feel my mother is well cared for at The Aldbury. She seems content and the caring staff are extremely attentive and caring. The food at the home is varied and although all my mother's food is pureed for obvious reasons it appears to be nutritious. She has gained weight since her arrival.

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.

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.
