Aspen Court Care Home

I feel that my sister Maria Perry receives excellent care. I do feel sometimes that the staff are overworked and therefore could do with extra people being hired. And helping when staff are unwell or off on holiday.

Aspen Court Care Home

Excellent experience. Kim/Jacob/Sheryl and the team are doing wonders with my Aunt Judith. I have seen many care homes - some are dreadful but Aspen Court is the gold standard. The clue is in the name, they actually care.

Aspen Court Care Home

The staff provide excellent care and are kind and respectful to residents, who are treated with dignity. The home is always very clean with a welcoming, homely atmosphere. The food is excellent and varied. The laundry is done daily and to a high standard. Rooms are pleasant and adequately furnished. My mother has lived here for 2 1/2 years after previously staying at three other care homes. Aspen Court stands out because of the wonderful care she receives from the staff that work there.

My husband has resided at Aspen Court since January 2013 and since that time both myself and family have found unstinting support from Kim and her staff. The rooms are comfortably furnished and have a homely feel. Meals are varied and tasty and staff are happy to provide refreshments. Medical issues are dealt with efficiently and promptly.

Aspen Court Care Home

My wife Esme has been in Aspen Court Care Home for the past 31/2 years. In all that time she has always been treated with respect. The staff always seem happy and helpful and I think they work very hard for quite low pay, which is why I think so many leave. This is not Kim the managers fault.

Aspen Court Care Home

My mother has had vascular dementia for the past 6 and 1/2 years and up until last ear my father was her main carer. Due to his deteriorating health he has been unable to tend to my mother’s care. Aspen Court has fulfilled his obligations with great care, integrity and the staff are friendly, professional, approachable, efficient and treat my mother with respect. The home has a comfortable, welcoming feel to it.

Aspen Court Care Home

We consider ourselves very fortunate that Aspen Court had a room available when we needed to move my mother from Residential care into Nursing. From the moment she arrived she was calm and settled. The staff ratio to residents is high. Their nursing expertise ensures round the clock medical care. The food is all fresh, the standard of cleanliness is high and you are welcomed by a friendly smile and the offer of refreshments. The kindness, dedication and understanding we receive from Kim and her excellent staff provides us with great comfort. Aspen Court is a very well run home. Their main focus is for my mother's well being. What more can you ask?
