Review of Morton Grange on Thursday 27 March 2014 by Richard A (Son of Resident)

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.

Review of Morton Grange on Monday 10 March 2014 by Vera K (Sister in Law to Resident)

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 on Thursday 20 February 2014 by Jack Crawford (Relative of two residents)

At Morton Grange, love and respect abound and these, above all, are the things that are important when caring for the elderly. Other residential homes may appear more luxurious or more clinical, but only the very best can hope to match the genuine care we have experienced here.

Review of Morton Grange on Monday 17 February 2014 by Robert & Maureen Thompson (Family of past residents)

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 on Friday 14 February 2014 by Christine Maris (Daughter of Previous Resident)

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.

Review of Morton Grange on Saturday 8 February 2014 by Margaret Jay (Relative of resident)

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.

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 on Tuesday 28 January 2014 by Albert Edwin Dooley (Husband of resident)

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 on Thursday 19 December 2013 by Helen Mallender (Resident's family)

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 on Saturday 30 November 2013 by S Newton (Daughter of resident)

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 on Monday 14 October 2013 by Angie Scott (Daughter of Resident)

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 on Monday 14 October 2013 by Chris Scott (Relative of resident)

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 on Saturday 3 November 2012 by Mrs S Berry (Daughter of Resident)

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.

Review of Morton Grange on Sunday 23 September 2012 by Tony Munroe (Son of Day Care User)

A big thank you to all the staff at Morton Grange for the care and dedication shown to my mother who, sadly, passed away in April this year. From the outset my wife and I were impressed with the high standards of professionalism, cleanliness of the home, and of the person - centered approach demonstrated by all employees. What is equally remarkable is the way in which the staff positively and creatively engage with residents and thus our experience is that the atmosphere of the home is always warm and friendly. It was for these reasons that we were keen for my mother to be offered a place at Morton Grange. It remains our opinion that the quality of the nursing care provided surpasses that which is provided for in other care homes within the Derbyshire area. My mother had been diagnosed with a number of health care needs and throughout the years with Morton Grange, those needs had been carefully monitored, in line with recommendations from health care professionals and expectations from family members. The Manager and Owner of Morton Grange were always on standby to deal with any queries or concerns which may have arisen. The accommodation itself is spacious, tastefully decorated and comprises substantial outdoor space within it's boundaries. My mother was a valued and respected member who benefited from the services offered at Morton Grange. I, therefore, have no hesitation in recommending this home to others. Many thanks again to all the staff for their excellent work.

Review of Morton Grange on Monday 2 April 2012 by Ian B (Son of Resident)

The care given to all residents is outstanding. Nursing and managerial staff are always on hand for care and advice. My mum was a resident for almost 2 years and has recently passed away. The care my mum received during her final days was excellent as was the support to the immediate family.
