Swallownest Care Home

I am staying at Swallownest care home while my house has alterations. I have stayed here before while my family went on holiday so was quite happy to come back for respite. I am due to go home today but have enjoyed my stay here. I have been out with the other residents while I have been here and have enjoyed the company of a lady I have met here. The staff are all very helpful and friendly and I would not hesitate to come back here should I need to.

Swallownest Care Home

The care home provided good end of life care for my parents. One died as a resident and the other was treated with care , respect and dignity in their remaining months of life, being supported through a difficult time with health and loss of a partner. The home was also supportive to family who found the care of ailing parents hard. The staff were really good and helpful and I felt confident leaving my parents with them.

I moved here from another care home as this one is nearer my family. My daughter chose this home for me, we arrived here early evening and wasn't sure what to think, the next day after looking round and chatting to other residents I was quite impressed. I have settled in now and enjoying my family visiting most days. I have been to the local day centre which I really enjoyed and have been playing board games with other residents. Friday we have a show which I am looking forward to.

I came to Swallownest for respite while my daughter went on holiday, when my daughter came home I went back home. I didn't like it at home, I had got used to the company. I am now back in Swallownest for 6 weeks respite with a view to permanent. I am really hoping I can stay here, I love it here. I have made a lovely friend who I spend my days with and I enjoy every day. The only thing that I'm not happy with is the thought of leaving here.

I had 2 strokes and a heart attack, after leaving hospital I went to live with my daughter. My daughters health has recently deteriorated so she was struggling to care for me. I came to Swallownest to give my daughter a break for respite. When it was time to go home I told my daughter and the social worker that I didn't want to go home. I am very happy living here at Swallownest and am hoping to spend the rest of my life here. I feel safe here and content and have a better quality of life.

I had a fall at home which I cant remember much about. After a short stay in hospital it was decided 24 hour care would be better for me until I recovered and got my strength back. I wanted to stay at Swallownest care home because it is in my village not far from where I live. I am not used to company as I spend a lot of time on my own but I have to say it has been very nice having company around me. If I ever need respite care again I would not hesitate to come and stay here again.

I cant remember much about what happened but I was told I had a fall, I woke up in hospital. I have been in hospital a few months (6 approximately). My 2 nieces chose Swallownest for me to stay for a while to recover and gain my strength. It took me a while to settle in as I was not used to the environment, I am gradually settling in and feeling a lot better. I have no complaints and I am happy to spend my days here to recover.

After suffering two strokes and a heart attack, I needed to look for 24 hour care - I have been living with my daughter who unfortunately fell ill and had to visit hospital fro treatment most days. We found Swallownest through discussions with GPs and Social Services. I am here for respite at the moment. I have no concerns - meals are varied - I feel really safe and I would recommend this home to anyone.

Dad came into Swallownest after my mom found it too much for her to handle, nursing care was needed 24 hours which he wouldn't get at home. We visited on the Friday as he moved in the week later. All staff are fantastic, food and rooms are very good and comfy, carers and management brilliant, also Dawn who does activities is very friendly and does a very good job. The overall is the best home and we are so glad as a family that he lives here and is comfy and settled.

First impression - was very good - no "nasty smell" as others we have visited had. Rooms are clean, bright, well decorated and comfortable. All staff we have met know the residents and their likes/dislikes and do their best to accommodate these. Menus are varied and dining room is cheery and bright. Mum encouraged to get involved with activities and outings without being pressurized to do so and this has really helped her settle in. Not an easy thing to find a care home for a relative, but this is on e I can thoroughly recommend.

Sadly had to move our father into a care home after our mum couldn't cope. However after this distressing time we had no reason to stress or worry as our father has never looked so well. He has deteriorated in mind, but in health and happiness he has improves enormously . He's never looked so well. My mother's life has improved too in health and happiness. We visit him every day/night where we are always welcomed as one big happy family.

My mother came to Swallownest following a period in hospital after breaking her hip. It was not possible for her to return home to live alone so we looked for a local care home. Swallownest is the closest to her house so she is still with the same GP practice, church, and friends are not far away. The staff here are all very friendly and helpful and know all the residents. Activities are organised and everyone is included. Family visits are always welcome and staff keep us informed.

I have been friends with Ken for over 20 years. After a slight stroke I supported Ken as much as I could. After Ken had a bad fall he ended up in hospital. At this time it was up to Ken to decide whether to live in a care home. A good friend recommended Swallownest to Ken so I came and had a look around to tell Ken what I thought. I told Ken it was very nice, I have seen a tremendous improvement in Ken since living at Swallonest.

Due to ill health that I suffer I could not manage mum and it was starting to take it's toll on me. This home was recommended to us and mum has settled in lovely. My time with my mum now is quality time and we enjoy each others company, shopping and take mum home.

Mum had been in hospital quite a while, we were told mum could not return home due to health reasons and my dad would not be able to manager to care for her. Mum was desperate to get out of hospital. Swallownest is our local village so we looked round Swallownest and we decided we would like mum to live there. Mum has lived at Swallownest now 18 months and we are very happy with her care. All mums needs are met here and we visit often.

My father was transferred from Rotherham general hospital on 24th December with bile duct cancer and he passed away on the afternoon of 30th December although his stay was short, the care and attention he and the family received was second to none.

I had two very bad falls at home and was taken to hospital. While I was in hospital it was decided I needed 24 hour care while I got stronger and back on my feet. I am living at Swallownest Care Home and have improved 100% and I am very reluctant to go home. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff here they go above and beyond their duties. I feel very safe and cared for living here.

I realised I could not manage at home any longer. I was in and out of hospital due to ill health. It was while I was in hospital that I made the decision to move into a nursing home. Swallownest Care Home was recommended to me by a very good friend. After living here now for three months I am very happy and settled. I visit a local day centre weekly and join in lots of activities. I get lots of visitors and am very happy with the care I receive.

In February 2014 it became apparent after all health care and rehab services that dad would need residential care and I would have to find a suitable placement. After looking at several units I was becoming quite despondent as they just weren't suitable, my sister-in-law was speaking to a work colleague who's mum was in care and she recommended Swallownest. I rang them up and was invited to visit anytime and was so pleased with what I saw, I arranged there and then for him to be admitted and not regretted it once.

Since going to Swallownest Care Home my Mother-in-Laws health has significantly improved. She suffered from very swollen ulcerated legs which required constant bathing and dressing by district nurses. She now has legs to rival any 40 year old. (she is nearly 94). The excellent food and amazing staff have turned her life back a good 5 to 6 years. When new staff start they soon know all residents following the example of long standing staff. New manager is excellent.

I cannot praise this home highly enough. The love and care the staff showed my aunt in the last few weeks of her life was second to none.

This home is a wonderful place and looks after patients exceptionally well.

Since my mother moved to Swallownest Care Home in June 2011, we have always been delighted with the quality of care she received, the food provided and the activities available to her. However, throughout 2014 these areas have all improved even further, coinciding with the arrival of a new manager in November 2013. The staff really do work as a team and support each other. Their knowledge of the individual residents is amazing and the care shown to them is outstanding. The whole ambiance is improving both inside and outside to provide facilities mirroring many hotels.

I lived at home with my wife and we had carers coming in 4 times a day. My wife died suddenly and me and my family decided that I would be better with 24 hour care. On arriving at Swallownest I was grieving for my wife so I really didn't care much where I was. Now! 4 weeks later I am feeling a lot more settled. The staff have been great and I have made a very good friend who I spend most of my days with.

Having visited Swallownest Care home many times over the years I can honestly say i find the staff very caring and helpful. I also like seeing the residents get involved in games such as bingo and tridomino's for small prizes. Swallownest Care home also have a summer and Christmas Fayre with lots of stalls with cakes, toys, books, films, arts and crafts and much more to raise extra money for residents trips out and everyone seems to really enjoy these days. I love the fact that the residents still get to go out to shops, museums or the seaside etc (with staff), I go to a support group most Tuesday's 10 till 1 and the Activity coordinator and a volunteer from the care home bring about 4 or 5 residents every week. Any one can go to this group and currently about 25 people do each week, there we all socialize have tea and biscuits, quizzes and play new games like the best of British board game and last week we had a dvd about what Aston/ Swallownest looked like many years ago. I am only 29 well 30 in two weeks and I really do have fun chatting and playing games with the residents at the support group. All in all in my opinion it's a very good care home

Me and my son had the job of finding a suitable home for my wife, after looking at a couple of other homes we visited Swallownest. The home instantly stood out from the others we had visited as it was lovely and clean and so very friendly, we were made very welcome. My wife has been here around a month now and we couldn't be happier, the staff and manager here go above and beyond their duty and although I don't live here I spend most of my days here with my wife. we have lunch together nearly every day and have been taken out 3 times already. A trip to the seaside is planned and we cannot wait. My wife has been ill for a while and we haven't been able to go out so coming to Swallownest has made a huge difference to our quality of life and I can't thank everyone enough. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone looking for care and hope you would be as happy we are.

My elderly mum is in Swallownest so I was a regular visitor to the home. After quite a nasty fall at home and due to several health problems it was decided that I should come and live at Swallownest. It took me a while to settle in as it was not an environment I was used to. I am now very settled at Swallownest & enjoy the activities and the outings, I also enjoy the regular concerts and enjoy a dance. I have made some nice friends and now call Swallownest my home.
