Review of Calway House

My mother moved into Calway House this week(23.2.2015). It is light, bright and welcoming. The staff seem very friendly and very helpful in settling her into her new room. The handy man was there to help put up her pictures to make it more homely. I think she will settle in a few weeks - I hope!

Review of Calway House

Calway presents itself well and thoroughly deserves its "Good" CQC rating in all areas The buildings are friendly, clean and modern, the rooms well kept and the whole is more reminiscent of a private hospital or small up-market hotel Staff seem caring, friendly and polite at all times In particular, although Calway is clearly for elderly people with age and health problems, it completely manages to avoid the archetypal "old folks home" feel (and smell !") As a result it is a pleasure to visit.

Review of Calway House

Excellent all round care. Mother feels that it is her home. Caring staff/professional. Activities could be more sophisticated - opera, quartets etc rather than bingo.
