Review of Amber Court Care Home on Tuesday 4 March 2014 by Janet Switler (Daughter of Resident)

Mum had been in care elsewhere and through gross negligence had both femurs broken. After three weeks in hospital went to Amber court with lots of health problems. She received excellent care with staff doing everything possible to aid healing, make comfortable and control terrible pain. Everyone from manager, nursing and care staff down to cooks and cleaners went the extra mile to help. I was at Amber Court every day for a good part of the day during the months Mum was in residence and can honestly say no one could have done more for both of us. Sadly Mum died last week, but I shall never forget how wonderful they all were.

The home is clean and very hygienic. No smells. Staff, on the whole, are cheerful and caring. I can visit any time I want, I have never heard or seen any of the staff abusing any residents either verbally or physically. The food is good and drinks are available all day. Birthdays and wedding anniversaries are acknowledged. Christmas is very jolly, all residents receive a present, I would be a resident there if it came to pass!

My mother Jane has been at Amber Court since August 2012, the staff are amazing and Lorraine has not only helped and cared for my Mother but has also helped me and my sister through a very struggling time. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff and they have almost become my mother's friends as they spend so much time with her encouraging her and helping her to improve. The interior is modern and homely and my Mother enjoys the food, she is very happy.

Review of Amber Court Care Home on Monday 10 September 2012 by Linda K (Daughter of Resident)

My mum has vascular dementia and after 6 1/2 years of endless caring we were recommended by a friend to look at Amber Court. Mum is cared for so well and at last I and my son have the peace of mind knowing her care is extraordinarily good and that the manager Lorraine and her staff really do care. It is the closest place to being at home, no horrid smells, good food, care and love. Keep doing what you do, with many thanks.

Review of Amber Court Care Home on Monday 2 April 2012 by Ann Spiers (Daughter of late resident)

My mum was in Amber Court for seventeen months and in that time their care was amazing. The word "home" is exactly what it is the residents home. My mum became very ill towards the end of her stay with them and they were so dignified with her. We received any information that we were asked. Their courteousness and dignity towards each and every resident is wonderful. They have time to speak and help them all. I would recommend this nursing home highly. Their rooms were their own room and they could put into it anything they wanted, which made it just like their own home. I would just like to say a very big "thank you" to every single member of the staff. The best part is the 'open door policy', you can go to visit at anytime.
