I would recommend the care you get at this care home, it is second to none. All the staff are all dedicated to their work, which stands out in the love and compassion they show to the residents. Nothing is a trouble to them and my uncle spent the last 10 days of his life here, being loved and cared for with full respect and dignity.

I would definitely recommend Jack Dormand Care Home. All the staff are excellent and look after my dad really well. The staff are always asking my dad if he is ok and do as much as possible to help him. They always engage in conversation with him and listen and enjoy his stories. The manager is great with the residents and you can tell she loves her job. My dad goes on outings with the home and really enjoys this.

I find the carers and staff are very good. They really care for the people in their care. Nothing is a trouble for them. They may not come as soon as called but that is only because they are dealing with other residents. The cleaning staff are also very good, they are at all times I've been in cleaning of some sort. The food also is very good and varied. I can go home and know I have not any worries about him being in Jack Dormand Care Home.

I recommend this care home as all the staff are very friendly. It is very clean and all the residents are well looked after. We moved my dad from a previous care home due to neglect and we are so pleased we moved him here. My dad has settled into this home and as this is my dad's new home this is very important. I feel, as his daughter, I can come here and I'm made welcome every time. All the staff are very caring. You can talk and discuss situations with the staff at anytime. The staff care about their residents and this is the main reason why.
