Warde Aldam Christian Nursing Home

My sister has been resident at the home for several years now. The home always smells fresh and is very welcoming. The décor and furniture is smart. The staff are very caring towards residents. They are spoken to and treated kindly and the residents are always clean and tidy. Sometimes my sister is not in her own clothing and items purchased are not always worn by her. My sister is very happy at the home and rarely shows any sign of wanting to leave with us. The food appears to be excellent on sight but unfortunately my sister is on fork mashable food which she does not enjoy eating. Activities are frequent and varied and to summarise its a beautiful environment which I would recommend to anyone.

My mother-in-law was cared for by the staff at Warde Aldam for approximately 4 years - initially and throughout with chronic Alzheimer's Disease, and latterly in need of a great deal of nursing care and attention. My wife and I can well appreciate how difficult it can be to provide a first class product and service to those in need of such care, but in Warde Aldam we not only found a place with the facilities and fabric to do so, we also found staff who's dedication and patience were second to none. My mother-in-law passed away on 31 July 2015 but the enduring sadness will be made easier to bear by the knowledge that Warde Aldam made her as comfortable as anyone could in such difficult circumstances. We are extremely grateful to the staff in general and in particular to two real stars who also helped the whole family through these last difficult years.
