I smoke to relax my nerves, particularly because I have mental health problems. I smoke a pipe, not cigarettes and have an e-pipe as well. When I first came to Sandpipers in 2002, it was still possible to smoke indoors. Since then Sandpipers has changed completely, it is now much more comfortable. In 2012 I revisited Sandpipers with a personal carer, we had to use a fairly basic outside smoking shelter, which was battered by the wind. This time I came and had a single room. The smoking shelter was humane.

My first visit to Sandpiper holiday home was very enjoyable, the environment and outings and the care shown to me was very good. I hope to be able to visit your centre at the same time next year as it makes a pleasant change to my every day life.

I use Sandpipers because as a disabled and visually impaired client I am unable to travel independently as a result I go the Sandpipers to visit places. I would bot be able to visit as Sandpipers provide both care and social needs which I may not get at other establishments long may Vitalise continue.

Dear Ian, thank you for your feedback. We are so pleased that you enjoy your breaks and the range of trips on offer. Looking forward to welcoming you back to Sandpipers soon!

The care that my wife received was excellent, no job too small. As her carer, I received a very well earned rest. The staff at Sandpipers are so helpful, the care team take over my wife's care as soon as we arrived. We have recommended the company to a lot of our friends and to our own carers to tell any of their own clients.

My son loves going to Sandpiper. They have so much fun and he is so well cared for by the nursing staff. Everyone is so friendly, from mangers to cleaning staff. He always says how great the food is and from the smells coming out of the kitchen I can only agree. He has been going for so long now we feel part of it.

When I first arrived I unpacked my bag and had a cup of tea. Then came the introduction then we all picked where we wanted to go on the daily excursions. I stayed at the Sandpipers centre for the first day after arriving. I was awake when the night care staff called into my room on their nightly checks. The unfortunate thing was, even though such a practice is reassuring, the night staff could not stay to chat! Good job really, because I needed all my energy for the activities which were great.

Personal care is attentive, response to calls for assistance is always rapid. The staff are friendly and really caring. Food and drink quality and quantity exceed guest expectations. To stay at Sandpipers is not cheap but very definitely excellent value for money. Overall the best respite care in a pleasant location in a small town with big facilities.
