Review of Alexander Care Home on Friday 3 May 2013 by Stephen Nuttall (Son)

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 on Thursday 2 May 2013 by Stephen Nuttall (Son of resident)

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.

Review of Alexander Care Home on Thursday 13 December 2012 by Ronald Haddon (Son of resident)

After the poor media coverage in the Manchester Evening News, I have found the Alexander Care Home to have cared for my father in an excellent way, over the past 12 months that he has been in there. He was very poorly when he left hospital, but since the love care and attention he has been given from the staff that is still on going he has improved immensely.

My sister has settled in well and says that everyone is very kind. We can call in to see her any time. No restrictions at all. The food is good. The staff I have met are all very caring and cheerful. They are quick to inform her daughter if anything is amiss. Very happy for her to continue at the Alexander.

Review of Alexander Care Home on Wednesday 12 December 2012 by David Filkins (Son of resident)

My father has been in the care home since March 2012 and was going down hill very fast. But for the attention and care of the staff my father has progressed well and put weight back on and he will be 96 in November. We think he will reach 100 with the care he receives.

My grandad is always happy, clean and well fed. The staff are excellent and welcoming. When my grandad first went in the care home he was very poorly and had been in hospital for approx 3 months. He is now thriving and enjoying seeing his family daily. The care he is given is excellent.

My husband has been a resident for 2 1/2 years and has always been very well cared for. He is out of bed most days and is very happy about it. It has made him more content. The food is very good.
