Also, as a last resort the care provider may opt for the comment and ratings of a review not to be displayed if they believe the comments/ratings to be unfair (the ratings of the Review will still count towards the overall Review Score).

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Janette F (Daughter of Resident/Service User) on Sunday 1 November 2015. Review relates to December 2014.
After my late mother was discharged from hospital in November, she was admitted to Belsfield House for end of life care. There she received care of the highest quality. All her needs were met at all times. We needed to put plans in place for her passing and with the help of the staff, we maintained good communication between us all. Every member of staff, from Cook to Nurse treated my mother with dignity and respect at all times. They tried their best to keep her spirits up, laughing and joking. On the odd occasions mum would have the staff in stitches, other times they sat with her keeping her company in the latter days.
The room she was allocated was very clean, airy and light. It even had an en-suite wc and shower. The home itself was clean, has a tv room and dining area, space outside for getting some fresh air and sitting out in the garden.
When her time came, we were all supported to the end and given time with her after her passing.
Without the love, care and hard work of all the staff, I feel that mum would have given up sooner than she did.
