Downshaw Lodge Care Home

I moved my husband to Downshaw Lodge on the 4th of October last year from another care home that was not meeting my husbands needs. I didn't think that I would be able to trust anyone else with my husbands care, however the staff at Downshaw Lodge changed my mind. The staff are all very caring, my husband is always clean, dry and shaved and he has gained lots of weight there. The staff are always welcoming to me and my family.

This is the third home my mum has been in and it is by far the best. The staff to resident ratio is very good. Staff are very understanding of my mothers needs, and are always accessible. Mum's room is always clean and bright. The laundry service is very good. At mealtimes, there is a good choice and meals which are eaten in a bright clean dining room. Mum has settle really well at Downshaw Lodge.
