I am able to sleep at night knowing my wife is taken care of. The staff and management are excellent. They make me feel welcome and a part of the home. I cannot fault anything and am just so grateful they took my wife in, look after her and make a fuss, and make her and us feel special! If I won the lottery I'd donate half to this wonderful home.

Allison House is excellent in dealing with dementia patients - especially with my mother-in-law - no other home would take her. I was recommended Allison House which specialises in challenging behaviour. The staff are fantastic, all working together as one big family. They don't look on the patients as patients, but make them feel like part of a big family.

My mother-in-law lived at Allison house from 2006 till March 2014 when she passed away. The staff treated her with compassion and love and were a great support to us as a family. I have always recommend Allison Court to anyone needing care for a relative with Alzheimer's.

Within a period of a few months my wife has been a resident of several care homes, none of which has allowed her to stay longer than a few weeks before the management of these so called 'care homes' advertising as 'EMI nursing' no longer have the facility for such residents. Come to visit Allison House to witness what care they give with pleasure.

My mam has been here for over 2 years. The staff are friendly with their patients as well as family members. If you have any problems they will deal with them straight away. They go on outings to the seaside, parks, pubs etc. This is a home I am happy with and know that my mam is safe and happy there.

After Dad been cared for at home the difficult decision was made that he could no longer stay at home for his own safety, he needed specialist care and we were recommended to visit this facility by friends. We were so impressed we moved Dad here and for three years he received individual and compassionate care. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff team who provided care with patience and respect. The activities offered to Dad were always open to my mother-in law which attempted to maintain there relationship, in fact we often felt that the team cared for Mum as well as Dad often providing lunch for them together. Supportive and caring to the end the team enabled the family to hand over the responsibility of Dad's care to a professional team second to none. I would recommend consideration and visit to the facility if you are looking for a placement for a family member.
