Review of Avandale Lodge Care Home on Thursday 10 July 2014 by Josephine D (Daughter of Resident)

Mum has only been here a short while, but the difference in her level of care has been marvellous. Mum already appears calmer and more content. The staff are caring and lovely with her. I couldn't be more pleased and feel very reassured.

Review of Avandale Lodge Care Home on Thursday 12 June 2014 by Julia H (Daughter-in-law of resident)

Just recently I have found that Bernard is more interested in taking part in activities, wanting to paint and mix with other residents. He is happy and smiles a lot. He enjoys conversations with people who visit and the family. The change in him I have noticed over the past three months, I don't know why, whether it is the change in the way the activities take place. We also like it that the carpets have gone, and the smell, the residents and staff move around much better, this home is nice and sunny.

Review of Avandale Lodge Care Home on Monday 12 May 2014 by Sarah D (Daughter of Resident)

My father is very well cared for, The staff are friendly and approachable towards both residents and families. The activities room is bright and interesting, and the lounge is roomy. The staff try hard to engage the residents in activities and have spoken to myself and my mum about dad's interests and hobbies with the aim to encourage appropriate activities and pass times for him.

Review of Avandale Lodge Care Home on Monday 12 May 2014 by Christine O (Wife of Resident)

My Husband is very well looked after by the staff and they are very helpful indeed regarding information. As well as being concerned about the resident they are concerned about family and friends. Activities seem to have improved lately, with different things to interest residents. Perhaps activities could include family, so we could see what they are actually doing.

Found that my sister settled in this environment with the good care that she received very quickly. The care that she has been given is excellent. The home is always kept very clean with a good choice of menu for their meals. It is reassuring that Avis has always kept a good weight. It is pleasing to see that Avis is dressed by the care staff with thought so that her clothing always matches up as she would like to be dressed.

Review of Avandale Lodge Care Home on Monday 15 July 2013 by Julia H (Daughter-in-law of resident)

Avandale Lodge is a lovely home. It recently had an overhaul and replaced all carpets with wooden floors, no horrible smells. The residents have plenty to do with activities and day trips. My father-in-law is very happy there and seems to have many friends. If there was one thing I would like to see more residents sitting in the gardens, more fresh air.

Review of Avandale Lodge Care Home on Sunday 17 February 2013 by Trevor Sproston (Son of Resident)

I am very happy to write this recommendation on behalf of my family. When my father became seriously ill just after Christmas the care and attention the staff at Avandale Lodge gave to him and us his family was exceptional, even though they were busy with their everyday duties nothing was too much trouble and they made this very sad time a little more bearable. My mother is also a patient in Avandale and we have seen staff show her compassion and respect each time the family have visited her.
