Since my mother has been in Camelot Lodge she has been much happier with her day to day life. Her relationship with the activities lady is a particular area where she is improving and happy.

The overall perception of Camelot Lodge is excellent. It is friendly and as it is new all the decor is what we would expect to make the residents feel at home. The room is very light and spacious and again the decor is very pleasant with plenty of storage, all that one needs. Better equipped than some hotel rooms!

I find the care staff very friendly and helpful, this also includes service staff and senior management. Since my wife has been in care at Camelot I have had the utmost confidence in the care and support she has been given, This in turn has given myself a feeling of wellbeing, knowing she is being looked after. I can visit her when I like which is good for her.

My wife has been at Camelot for almost six years. I am very pleased with the way she has been cared for. The carers particularly are good and love her. She first showed signs of dementia in 2002 and considering it is now 2015 I think we had had a good run.

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.

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.
