The manager has been marvelous, from first meeting him early this year when we visited to assess my husband. You could tell by talking to him that her knew every aspect of the job. The staff I have met have been wonderful and they have looked after him with very much care and attention. I would recommend their service to anyone and I have no qualms about my husband returning for further respite in the near future.

Priory Gardens Care Home

I am happy for my mother to be in a safe, secure and caring environment. Compared with two other institution catering for medical/health issues this is much better in the personable and caring way, staff deal with demanding patients. The staff here are the main asset because caring for the elderly has to involve the right approach to people as well as the social needs. The staff here seem concerned and do not perform their tasks in a perfunctory way.

The rooms are adequate, they are well kept. Mum is settled, she is well cared for and looked after. I do not have any worries about mum's welfare. All the family are happy with mum's care. As the care is at the moment, mum will reach 100 years old in Priory Gardens, she has got a new lease of life by going into this home. It would be nice to know mum will see her days out where she is happy. A friendly and relaxed place.

My Nana came to Priory Gardens on the nursing unit for end of life care. The four weeks she was there were the best she had in a very long time, from being bed bound and at home struggling with day to day life. She decided she couldn't cope anymore. The staff on the nursing unit made my nana comfortable and she enjoyed the last few weeks she had left. The support and care from staff and management were fantastic. (Wish my Nana had done it sooner).

My mum received palliative nursing care at Priory Gardens for three weeks prior to her death. The care was exceptional and the kindness shown to us, her family was supportive and sympathetic. The registered nurses were professional in their care and the care workers were kind and patient. We couldn't have asked for more.

My dad had two periods in this home. The first was in the dementia wing, and the second in the nursing wing. On both occasions he was treated with great care and compassion and shown a great deal of love by all the staff. We visited him every day and also became very friendly with the staff, nothing was too much trouble and every query was quickly dealt with. We recommend Priory Gardens to everyone who asks what it was like for dad.
