Review of Alexander Care Home

My mum Lilian moved into Alexander almost two years ago, she kept falling and is now in a wheelchair. The home has 31 rooms and feels warm and cosy, it's very clean and the staff are all really nice, they have become like extended family. My mum is very with it and has all the girls in her confidence, she knows all their boyfriends names and is kept entertained with great singers, parties, days out and trips round the park next door.

Review of Alexander Care Home

I stayed for respite care for nearly three weeks, only three weeks after my husband’s death. I was supposed to stay elsewhere but it was awful, my daughter rang the Alexander and within one hour I was settled after being welcomed and assessed, what a difference. The staff are an amazing team and the manager, Anne, is a great example to them. They made a very sad time more bearable and I felt safe and cared for.

Review of Alexander Care Home

My mother Annie who has recently passed away was cared for in a dignified respectful way by professional caring staff who made her stay at this home Her Home. My mum made friends with other residents with the support of staff. She was registered blind so it was difficult to meet new people, this was soon rectified with every staff member helping her settle into to her home, enabling her to make friends was one of the key factors to a New Life she called home. Nothing was too much trouble to staff, even though they where always busy but never too busy to help mum, so when you left her you always new she was in a safe hands and Cared for. I can't thank them enough. Well done to everyone. Thank you from all our family Stephen-Margaret-Anne-Joan-John xxx

Review of Alexander Care Home

This care home provided care for Mam as if she was part of their own family. The home supported her in all her needs, when asked and when not asked, in a dignified and caring manner, during her stay at Alexander up to her passing away. It was an example of what care is all about. She was at home in Alexander Care Home and I myself felt I was at home with her. No fast rules or regulations, staff knew their jobs and kept everything to a good standard. This gave my mam personal and individual care in a happy environment.

Mum has just been at Alexander Care Home for a weeks respite care. We have been delighted with how settled she has felt, how exceptionally friendly and helpful the staff have been. Most of all and most important is that mum has enjoyed her stay and highly praises the care she has received.
