Review of Frethey House Care Home with Nursing

The home is bright and cheerful and my mother is well looked after. I am always made to feel welcome when I visit and any concerns I may have are always dealt with promptly. I like the large sitting room with small areas to sit in groups rather than around the walls as is found in some homes. Plenty of comfortable chairs for the residents. Activities good and 'one to one' excellent.

Review of Frethey House Care Home with Nursing

This is a very well run nursing home and my sister and I have been very happy with my mother's care. The nursing staff, carers and activity ladies are friendly and professional and always on call with a smile. My mother is well cared for and her room is always clean and warm. The home has a nice atmosphere, with daily activities, occasional outings and entertainment for those who are able or wish to participate. They say that how an institution is run comes from the top down and in this case it's obvious that Anne Lewin does and excellent job.
