Review of Athelstan House

If you take the old adage that nothing is perfect, then Athelstan House is as good as it could get! They are super efficient, caring and respectful to both patient and relatives. My recently deceased, 91 year old Father, has spent 5 years in Lavender, the nursing home section of Athelstan House, with progressive Old Age Parkinson's. After a spell in hospital with a broken hip, he went into the Care Home with an appalling bed sore. They turned him EVER two hours, night and day, and, to everyone's amazement, completely cured his sore. This has to be one of this region's best run Care Homes and should be held up as an example to all. Not only have they provided excellent holistic care during the whole 5 year period of his residence, but they keep the family informed at each juncture, and when life comes to an inevitable end they behave with such dignity and understanding, that you are left believing your loved one could not have had better care anywhere.
