Dunanney Care Centre

Mum had spent around 5 and a half months in hospital and had experienced poor care during her stay. I had felt that this along with the illness had really weakened my mum's physical state. Dunanney staff have fought for support in the way of an extra support chair to help mum spend less time in bed and have been relentless in trying to build her strength in an attempt to give her some quality of life. I really feel the support mum has had during her stay has seen progress considering how tough things have been for her, and truly believe the care is exactly what she needs.

My mother-in-law came to the home unexpectedly after a series of illnesses badly affected her. She has received excellent support from the staff here in trying to improve general health and movement. Her mood has improved, her weight has gone up and staff have worked very hard to help with her mobility. The nursing staff have been very supportive to the family also, ensuring we are fully informed of what they have been doing and improvements or concerns, and have been able to answer any questions we have asked. They are very friendly and I feel know their jobs well. They have been very supportive when the hospital was not and helped the family in a difficult time.

I live in London so, apart from a couple of visits a year, my contact is by telephone. Gary on the switchboard is excellent in his communication skills. The other carers are excellent in getting my aunt to the telephone. My aunt is always very happy with the care she is receiving. She enjoys the food. I obtain feedback from people who visit my aunt and they confirm these comments.

The quality of my aunts life has increased 100% since going to live in Dunanney. The staff go that extra mile. She is kept clean warm and fed. She is safe and because she suffers from Alzheimers she wanders. Dunanney is a secure home so I don't have to worry about her going outside alone. The staff are always friendly and pleasant. My aunt is happy and content. It is a pleasure to go and visit her in such a clean friendly place. I can come away knowing I have left her in good safe hands.
