My mother was resident for convalesce through October 2014 and again December 2014 until March 2015, when she then returned home.
The care and attention she received was excellent. I cannot praise the staff enough for their friendliness and hospitality.
As a nurse manager myself I am familiar with expected nursing care and standards within such environments.
First impressions were that the home was somewhat shabby however the friendliness of the staff the cleanliness and care out weighed this impression and it was pleasing to see during my mothers stay that the owners were upgrading the premises, decorating rooms one by one.
Food was plentiful. The residents were encouraged to go on days out, and I witnessed regular entertainment for the residents.
The senior care workers were professional and a credit to themselves and the home, clearly well trained and they carried out their work professionally.
I would have no hesitation in returning my mother to this home in he unfortunate case she required it.

My Mum was recently transferred to Appleby Court from hospital for rehabilitation. She is 89 years of age and was petrified to be going into a care home. From the moment she arrived the staff were so welcoming. Paul her carer introduced himself and put her at ease straight away. They brought her tea and biscuits and helped her to settle in. She spent 2 weeks there and was looked after like a queen. Every member of staff is so helpful and caring. The physio team and re-ablement teams were excellent. We would 100% recommend. Mum is now home and recovering well thanks to all at Appleby Court, keep up the great work.
