My Mother has been here since 2006, and has been taken care of by a wonderful team. More money should be available for anything the care home requires and more appreciation for the staff who do a very hard job.

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.

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.

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.
