The nursing and care staff at Colton Lodge are excellent and have made my mum's transfer from her home into care an easier process than we thought possible. Would certainly recommend Colton Lodge.

Review of Colton Lodges Nursing Home on Wednesday 12 February 2014 by Jeffrey McCormick (Son-in-law of resident)

Having made out a spreadsheet of inspecting a few nursing homes in my area. Colton Lodges came out on top. Why? Firstly location. As I visit almost everyday the journey time is very short whether by bus or car. Secondly the staff. After watching them over the last three months, they pitch in together as a team. I know now my mother-in-law is in the right place, and that is a great comfort to me.

All the staff and all the facilities offered at Colton Lodges were brilliant! All the care needs were met for our mum, who was a resident here after having a severe stroke!! The staff were attentive.caring towards or mum and towards us as well! They had time to talk to us even when they were busy with daily work. We would recommend this home for any families who may need care for their beloved ones. Thank you to all at Colton Lodges.

Review of Colton Lodges Nursing Home on Monday 30 December 2013 by Michael Bettison (Son of resident)

My father was a resident of Newsome Wing for only two months and, sadly, died on 28th December. Together with my brother and two daughters I spent most of the two days prior to his death in his room with him. We were overwhelmed by the professionalism and compassion shown by ALL of the staff we came into contact with during this time and on the following day. They really helped the family to cope with the situation. Our thanks to all of them.
