Review of Ferndale Court Care Home on Monday 2 June 2014 by Lisa Lonsdale (Uncle a resident)

This is as close to a home from home as you could get. It is well designed, very clean, there is plenty to do, the food is excellent and the staff cannot be bettered. The Management is superb. I would recommend Ferndale Court to anyone!

Review of Ferndale Court Care Home on Wednesday 2 April 2014 by Judith M (Daughter of resident)

My mother spent from July 2013 to Feb 2014 in Ferndale, when she died. She was 94 and very independent and only due to ill health went into Ferndale. They treated her exceptionally with kindness, courtesy and dignity. During her final week their care was exceptional. They also made us feel so welcome as a family, and in a strange way, it was a pleasure to go into the home, even though there was great sadness as my mum was dying.

Review of Ferndale Court Care Home on Saturday 19 October 2013 by Luisa Rhodes (Aunt was a resident)

Our aunt, Florrie Rhodes, who recommended the home herself as a user, was very happy there for four years. She had regular carers whom she considered as friends and was respected and treated as an individual. She was also extremely well looked after in the final weeks of her life. We are most grateful to all the staff for all their care and would not hesitate to recommend the home - it is exactly what all nursing homes should be like.

Review of Ferndale Court Care Home on Thursday 4 July 2013 by Elizabeth T (Daughter of former resident)

My father was admitted to Ferndale Court for the last two weeks of his life. He did not want to move from his home but he needed 24 hour care. To our surprise he settled well and had a good rapport with the staff. We are grateful for the care Dad received and the positive response to his requests even the somewhat stranger ones. Especially we will always be grateful for the care and consideration shown to us as a family in Dad's last hours.

Review of Ferndale Court Care Home on Tuesday 18 June 2013 by Narelle Clarke (Daughter)

Bev Burke district nurse liaison discharge facilitator Halton division recommended Ferndale to best suit my dad's needs. Dad's declining and ill health came on so quickly. It was a daunting decision to admit him to a care home for palliative care but we instantly fell in love with the place. The staff are patient, caring and dedicated and ensure my dad still has his dignity which as his family is so important.

In what is a very difficult time for my family a terrible time is made bearable due to the 150% effort from all the staff at Ferndale. The quality of care is beyond my expectations and I know my dad is in the best place I could find to end his life. Words cannot express my thanks and appreciation for your efforts.

Having been here for 4 and a half years, I think that speaks for itself. It is a very happy home, well run and very welcoming. The staff treat me like I am family. The outings are very frequent and enjoyable, the staff take me for my personal shop on their days off.

Review of Ferndale Court Care Home on Tuesday 4 June 2013 by James Donnelly (Husband of resident)

As I am my wife's carer I was apprehensive about going into hospital for an operation. We checked care homes and decided that Ferndale Court suited our needs best. The staff were very nice, and the rooms and layout, and entertainment impressed us. I am now out of hospital and my wife is at home with me, she enjoyed her stay at Ferndale Court, and if I was ever in the same position again, I would be happy for her to go to Ferndale again as I know she would be well looked after.

Review of Ferndale Court Care Home on Tuesday 18 September 2012 by Raymond Pitt (Son of Resident)

Mum spent her last 7 weeks receiving palliative nursing care in Ferndale Court and was treated with the greatest possible kindness, affection and dignity by all the staff. It is difficult to express my heartfelt thanks in words to everyone at Ferndale Court who made my dear Mum as cheerful and content as she could possibly be in her final days. Thank you to all at Ferndale Court.
