Review of Kingfishers

My husband John was at Kingfishers for 4 years and received excellent care. I visited him every day and felt that in that time the staff and residents became part of my family. Rebecca, the matron, always had time to listen to any concerns I had. Many times during the night or early morning I would go and visit John and I always felt welcome. I still visit Kingfishers although my husband has sadly passed away. I think Kingfishers is the best and would certainly recommend them.

Review of Kingfishers

Very bright, modern, clean building. Excellent staff at all levels. Daily activities and trips out. Nothing is too much trouble by the staff. Very smart and colourful gardens all year round. Food is top class. Mother has been a resident there for the 5 years it has now been open and if I could afford it I wouldn't hesitate to move in there as well !

Review of Kingfishers

I developed a relationship with Kingfishers after my mother died. Three months ago, my father came for respite care and while he is sad not to return home the family know that he is in the best place, which gives great piece of mind. The culture of caring, openness and clear communication permeates the whole home. There is no mistaking the genuineness of staff in their thoughtfulness , friendliness and attention to detail. My father, a man not prone to flattery or compliments, often tells me how well looked after he is. I could not hope or expect more.

Review of Kingfishers

I cannot speak more highly of the way in which my dear husband is being cared for in Kingfishers. He was a very clever, highly qualified man, but he is now a poor old fellow. Nevertheless, he and everyone else including visitors are treated kindly and with respect. I mark them 10 out of 10!

Review of Kingfishers

I have nothing but praise for this home. The manager and all of the staff were always so pleasant and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. My friend, the resident, was certainly not the easiest person to deal with but never said a word of complaint about any of the staff. The environment, food and multiple activities for the residents were all excellent.

Review of Kingfishers

My whole family agree that we were so lucky to be offered a place at Kingfishers for my Dad, Revd Trevor Rowe. He has vascular dementia and was beginning to need nursing care that his previous care home could not provide. I visit him at least every other day and cannot fault the care that he and his fellow residents receive. The staff give kindness, physical care, mental stimulation, endless conversation, hugs & hand holding to all residents as if they were looking after their own family members, which is so reassuring to relatives. I understand about the sometimes "challenging behaviour" of some residents but nothing seems to faze the care staff at Kingfishers! I really cannot fault anything about Kingfishers Care Home and am just glad that we were so lucky to find it. Well done to all who work there!
