Hollyfields have worked wonders! After experiencing a mental health hospital for several months this had a detrimental effect on dad however, Hollyfields have turned this around. It's an open door policy and each visit all staff have been friendly and genuinely attentive, they treat dad with respect. There is a great feel to the place, home from home and a fabulous choice of meals. This is the next best thing from home and it gives the family and dad peace of mind!

My wife was in this home for nearly six years, and all aspects of her care were good, and provided with dignity and respect. I visited my wife most days for several hours and found the carers were most helpful and always cheerful and of good humour. The nursing staff were helpful and co-operative and went out of their way to care for my wife.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Hollyfields for being so kind to me. I have lived here for some times now and I really like it. I enjoy visits from Pat Dog and the Rev Jon Aston. I get to choose the food I like and I want to eat and if I don't want to come out of my room that's fine too. I do on occasion enjoy visiting the lounge for entertainment however it was nice to hear that carol singers at Christmas who came and sang outside my room.

I have no complaints with how clean my room is as it is cleaned every day.

I have been a regular visitor to Hollyfields for some time now, always a warm welcome from the staff and have seen first hand the lengths they go to to ensure all the residents are happy and well cared for. They treat the residents to activities including days out and also provide various entertainment including guest singers on afternoons throughout the year plus much more. From what I have seen personally the facilities are maintained to a high standard and the recent refurbishments at Hollyfields look fantastic. The management and admin team are friendly and always willing to help with any issues or inquiries that I've had, including all other staff members I've dealt with during visits.

The staff at Hollyfields are wonderful. My mum (who has Alzheimers disease) has been a resident there for 5 years and has been cared for very well during this time. The staff are exceptionally friendly and enthusiastic despite the sometimes challenging situations. They do a great job to involve the families and communities in the lives of the residents. I got married in July 2014 and my Mum was not able to attend the main event due to her condition but the staff, in particular the events coordinator, were absolutely brilliant in organising an event within the care home to mark the occasion. This event was thoroughly enjoyed by my mum and two other close relatives, as well as the other residents. It really was wonderful that the staff did so much, not only for my Mum's sake but also appreciating the importance of such events in the lives of the families of the residents. I am forever grateful to them for that.
