Review of Camelot House

Wonderful Care
Camelot House cared for my father for, about two years. I always felt the home had a friendly and warm atmosphere. My father was very well cared for. Nothing was too much trouble. I am grateful to Sue Stephens and ALL the staff for their kindness to my father and to my mother who used to visit, dad, every day during that time. He was given respect and allowed to retain his dignity. He was very happy there. When he died in October 2013 his needs were attended to throughout his last days. I would genuinely recommend Camelot House to you as place of refuge and security for your loved ones.

Review of Camelot House

Having spent 3 years in another care home, my wife moved to Camelot six months ago and experiences wonderful specialist care for dementia suffers. She has personalised her room and receives remarkable care and assistance. Indeed much seems to be personalised. Sensory stimulation has helped her to better understand herself and her surroundings. Anger-management (frontal lobe damage following a stoke) has improved her mood and enjoyment of life immensely.

Review of Camelot House

Very happy with care and respect my Mum was given whilst at Camelot. The staff are marvelous and extremely courteous. My mum was given the best care during her last couple of years and it was very reassuring to know that she was in the best hands to deal with her dementia. She was still treated as a "somebody" and not just ignored.

Review of Camelot House

I was very happy with the care my wife received whilst she was resident in Camelot. It was very reassuring for me knowing that she was being so well cared for. They treated my wife with respect and as an individual. The staff are very conscientious and dedicated and nothing was ever too much trouble for them. The staff made my wife’s last few years more bearable for not only her, but for myself and my family in the support and understanding that was offered, which is much needed at certain times.
