This residential and care home is in my opinion one of the top care homes in the district. It's staff are kind and considerate to all residents in their care. The home is spotlessly clean, the management and staff are always ready to help in any situation.

Recommend this home, management very attentive and keep relatives in the picture as to how resident was settling into the routine of the home, very pleasant and hard working carers. Lady Chef is interested in what kind of food resident can eat on the day resident arrives at the house so she can cater for their needs. Nursing staff excellent. The home is in attractive grounds where residents can be taken outside to sit and chat.

After a few years of big problems in 2 other care homes, we decided to try this one, at first it was an ideal care home to place your loved one, but after time it was taken over like some places often are, I began to notice changes within the home I.e management not running the home to the standard it should be, relatives and staff alike becoming unhappy with things being brushed under the carpet so to speak, but mostly trust in my family member and the continuation of the original care promised and what is paid for. It again got sold onto someone else, on our first meeting with the new owner, I am pleased to say the home is happier than its been in a while, decorating being done and so forth, but the thing that is uppermost is the knowledge that the new owner is true to his words, which as a residents family member is music to my ears, the fact that he goes out of his way to converse with the residents regardless. This speaks volumes, the residents and carers and family members alike have faith now, that the is now running as it should be.

After a period of poor management this home is now under new ownership and it appears much needed improvements are now being implemented and promises this will continue. It has been noticed that the home appears to be a much happier place of late.
