Review of Frethey House Care Home with Nursing on Thursday 23 May 2013 by Michael P (Son of Resident)

I feel that the quality of the service provided is of such a good standard that I am prepared to assist in the promotion of the home and the group as a whole to hope that people looking for a good standard of care in good surroundings will consider caring homes for their families.

Review of Frethey House Care Home with Nursing on Friday 17 May 2013 by Christine C (Daughter of resident)

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 on Monday 13 May 2013 by Tracey Blood (Daughter of resident)

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.

Review of Frethey House Care Home with Nursing on Monday 28 May 2012 by Michael Merrifield (Son of Resident)

My wife and I would like to recommend Frethey Nursing Home as it has been and is providing excellent care for our mother/mother-in-law. The dignity of the residents appears to be of paramount importance and the staff, who are extremely caring, are well led by the manager, Ann Lewin. The home is clean, the food is excellent and there are daily activities for the residents.

Review of Frethey House Care Home with Nursing on Monday 21 May 2012 by Stella Vincent (Wife of Resident)

The initial ambience of this home is attractive, warm and welcoming. I visited quite a few homes, but after being shown around by the Head of Care, felt Frethey would be the right place for my Husband. Sadly he has deteriorated in the time he has lived here, but his care plan has been adjusted to provide the appropriate care for him. Not only is he, I would almost say, lovingly cared for (as are the other residents). There is an interesting and wide range of activities for those who are able to appreciate them and relatives are always welcome and are kept well informed of developments.
