Review of Morton Grange

care at its best
My mother in law was only in Morton for a few months but the care she had was the very best. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and she ended her days comfortable and content. Before she became a resident she visited Morton to attend functions and always enjoyed them, she got to know the owner and matron so when she had a stroke this was her choice as she had seen first hand how well residents were cared for.

Review of Morton Grange

Mother is 85 years old and has Alzheimers which has steadily progressed. She is cared for at home by myself and my father who is 89 and cannot cope with everything on his own. Mother has a very short memory and gets easily confused, but can walk and uses a zimmer. She attends Morton Grange 4 days a week and enjoys the company, friendly staff and activities which include some day trips out in their mini bus. The country setting and views offer an uplifting outlook. The staff are all aware of her needs and update me on her progress. I am fully confident in Morton Grange and she always returns home in a good mood.

My mother has been in Morton Grange for 12 months after suffering a stroke. This stroke took away her ability to swallow and her speech was badly affected, this means everything has to be done for her. The staff are brilliant. Mom is very well cared for and looks lovely whenever I go to visit. I can't praise the staff enough. I always get a friendly greeting when I go and when I phone they are very kind and helpful.

Review of Morton Grange

Dignity, kindness and respect
My father was only in Morton Grange for a very short time but while he was there was treated with the utmost dignity, care and respect. He had a very comfortable room, close to the nurse's station and developed a very warm relationship with all the staff. He had nursing needs and these were met at Morton Grange with great professionalism. Also, when any members of Dad's family visited we were all treated with kindliness and understanding. The staff went to very great lengths to make us feel comfortable as visitors. Although Dad wasn't always able to take advantage of the entertainment, other residents could benefit from a wide variety of activities. We appreciated the peace and quiet of the location and we were most grateful that Morton Grange were able to find a place for Dad.

Wholeheartedly recommend this home. Care was lavished lovingly and caringly and patiently over the three years that my mother resided there.

Care of the Highest Order
Dad stayed at Morton Grange for over five years and mum is still there :) Sadly dad passed away this week and I feel it is important that the home is recognised for the great love and care they showed to Dad throughout his stay. We never once had cause to question their care and were always deeply impressed by every member of staff who unfailingly treated him with the greatest dignity and respect. We cannot thank them enough and will always be in their debt.

At a very low ebb we found Morton Grange and from that point we felt that we had found the right place for Peter. We have found everyone very understanding, supportive and caring.

Review of Morton Grange

My mother, Ivy Clay, was a resident at Morton Grange for some years. She moved there from another care home in the Derbyshire area where her treatment and care had been basic and without warmth or dignity. It is a difficult experience finding a suitable home for a parent or relative. I chose to visit homes unannounced. Some had a stale odour, disinfectant odour or worse. Some residents looked 'blank'. I failed to notice this with Morton Grange. As you enter Morton Grange there is a feeling of welcome, happiness and a sense of well-being. I was immediately greeted with a smile and invited to visit the home and see where my mother would live, if one of the residents didn't mind, I was allowed to see a bedroom but I noticed the resident was kindly asked first. I was shown the living area and dining room and all other areas used for all the residents and introduced to the staff who were at the time attending the residents. My mothers area had more of a 'family' feeling, all the staff knew all the residents by name and seemed to enjoy being with them, smiling and interacting. Every resident was clean and tidy looking, and seemed content. I was lucky that there was a room available for my mother who spent the rest of her life in comfort and dignity. Something I found so very special was the fact that when I phoned which was at varying times, I was immediately told of her medical condition, which room she was in and what she had eaten. This pointed out to me that all the staff were truly aware of each resident. I live abroad and knowing my mother was in the very best place with the kindest of staff caring for her was essential for me. I visited each year but never announced when I would arrive. Each time was the same. Perfect. Happiness and total care. I will never forget any of the staff and all their kindness and will always be grateful. Chris Pinney.

Review of Morton Grange

Consistently good care and attention for my mother who has now been a resident in the home for approx 5 1/2 years. Although mum has deteriorated with her Alzheimer's, I am convinced the progress has been slower partly due to her being treated well. She laughs and sings still (although no-one knows the tune or words). The staff are warm and friendly to all the family - mum of course in particular.

The home takes great pride in providing a comprehensive, respectful and dignified service to residents and relatives. A high and professional level of caring is provided over and above mere spasmodic attention. Every effort is made to stimulate those staying in the home by both internal and external means. The staff are all attentive and courteous, always ready to help.

Review of Morton Grange

I have never known a more caring and well run nursing home. I had bad experiences of nursing homes when my Farther was alive (as he had vascular dementia). Then I found Morton Grange, here he was treated like a king, and therefore giving my Mother an insight to the home. When she became unable to look after herself she asked to go to Morton. Luckily they had a vacancy and since being with them she has come on in leaps and bounds. It is such a pity that Social Services are clouding this with there "POLITICS" pity they don't think of people instead of money all the time. People have enough to sort out without Social Services being a pain in the ??????? Morton Grange always put the people first and for this I thank them and appreciate them very much.

My wife was in another care home so I am writing of my experiences. The first care home she only went outside 3 times in 4 years. Since moving to Morton Grange in the first year has been out at least a dozen times. Should she need to go to the toilet or have cream on her arms (due to a skin complaint) her request is quickly dealt with. I am confident and I have good thoughts and pleasure knowing she is being well looked after. I could not find a better place in the whole of the UK.

Review of Morton Grange

My mum has been a resident at the home for several years. Over that time she has been extremely well cared for as her Alzheimers has become totally debilitating. I would go as far as saying she has been loved well as cared for and, even though the staff have occasionally changed, this culture remains as strong as ever. The staff always treat us well, too, on our visits to see Mum. It is reassuring to know that she is in safe hands.

My Sister in Law has been a resident in Morton Grange for over 6 years. She is now 97. Although I live 70 miles away I visit her every 6 weeks for 4 days staying with relatives whilst there. I have every admiration for all the staff, nursing, carers, caterers, cleaners etc. Also entertainment, trips out, there are facilities for card and board games etc, television, also quiet for reading. If I ever have to go into a care home, I hope it will be Morton Grange.

Review of Morton Grange

We feel Morton Grange is a special place. At the same time we had three of our relatives living at Morton Grange. Sadly they have all passed away but we will always be grateful to the care and love shown to them and to us their family. We fully recommend Morton Grange.

Review of Morton Grange

My mother was in this home for several years and died there. At all times the care was excellent but more importantly the affection shown by all the staff was so lovely. Although suffering from alzeimers she was always happy and contented, even telling me so in one lucid moment. At the end of her life they cared for her until the end and did not make us send her to hospital. I will forever be grateful to all at Morton Grange.

Residents treated with respect and dignity within a friendly, well-managed nursing home. Would not hesitate in recommending this nursing home, as standards are high.

Review of Morton Grange

Morton Grange was home for my mother for the last four and a half years of her life. I cannot speak highly enough of the care she received. She was treated with love, compassion and dignity. I had peace of mind knowing she was safe, secure and happy.

Review of Morton Grange

I cannot speak more highly of the care and love my mum receives at Morton Grange. The home is well run and has pleasant staff who are always helpful. It is very clean and tidy but most of all it is a home for the residents.

Review of Morton Grange

Everyone concerned with the running of the home is polite, clean, and treat all with dignity. For the first time in four years I went to visit my daughter and family in Canada for three weeks knowing my wife (of 62 years) was in a place where she would be looked after and cared for. The owner gave up her Christmas day at home to be with her flock and she even helped to feed those who had eating difficulties, that is devotion to duty.

Review of Morton Grange

My mother in law was a resident for over 5 years and never once in that time was she treated with anything less that the utmost respect. The staff were always so kind and caring no matter what challenges they faced, and her dignity was always maintained. She was always clean and well dressed, and was encouraged by staff to have her hair done by the visiting hairdresser. The rooms were well furnished and residents could also take their own possessions. The hygiene of the building was of a very high standard and the staff were always very clean and smart. The food was cooked on the premises and was always fresh and appetising. Any medical needs of the residents are dealt with very professionally. The residents are made to feel part of the 'family'. There is always a full programme of entertainment to which residents and guests are always welcome. Family and guests were also made to feel very welcome and encouraged to visit whenever they wanted. I would highly recommend this Care Home especially if your relative has dementia or specialist needs.

Review of Morton Grange

Sadly mum passed away in September aged 93. Whilst mum was at Morton Grange the staff were very caring, warm and patient with her and they did their best to lift her spirits.They showed such kindness and always had a smile and a friendly face when they fed her at meal times. The meals were very good. Although mum spent her time in her room through ill health and by choice there were plenty of trips out and entertainment for residents if they wished. It was always easy to speak to the nurse on duty and/or carer about mum. The home appears very well run and the staff ratio seems higher than where mum was before.

Review of Morton Grange

In the search for a care home for my mother Morton Grange stood out from the beginning. The staff have always been very kind and caring and, without fail, treat the residents with patience, dignity and respect. The food is excellent and the range of activities impressive which ticks two very important boxes in terms of quality of care. The staff keep me very well informed and I am content in the knowledge that my mother is safe, happy and being extremely well cared for.

Review of Morton Grange

My father sadly passed away in April of this year aged 95. He spent his last six weeks under the loving care of all of the staff from Morton Grange. Whilst his stay was short, he settled in from his home in the North East very easily and was often smiling and laughing with the staff. He loved the food and participated in a few activities. As he came to the end of his life the staff were loving and supportive to him, and they helped me a great deal. My Mother in law has been in Morton Grange now for just over 2 years and she thrives on the love and care that she gets every single day.

Review of Morton Grange

To thank the staff, who looked after my mother. She was in the late stages of Alzheimer’s when we moved her to Morton. The carers were great nothing fazed them, they were patient, caring and gave Mum love. It helped us knowing she was being looked after so well.
