Mum is 96 and was admitted to St Pauls to receive palliative care. This was our first experience of a nursing home and we were uncertain about what to expect. We are delighted with the care mum is receiving at St Pauls! We could not have wished for a nicer or safer environment for mum, we would definitely recommend St Pauls to other families looking for a good nursing home.

My partner has lived in this home for over four years. I have always known that he is being properly looked after, both physically and mentally. He says that he feels safe here. He is only 53, so is much younger than most of the other residents. The staff - nursing and other - often pop in his room for a chat. As he is totally bed bound, this means a lot to both of us.

The care my brother-in-law receives is second to none, the staff are friendly and polite towards us when we visit. My brother-in-law often comments on our visits that "this is not a bad place to live" which is a great comfort to us knowing that he is happy. He can be very difficult at times but the staff manage him really well . I hope he ends his days at St Paul's in my opinion there is no where better.

St Pauls Care Centre

I have been really impressed with the care provided by the above home. The staff are very caring and treat the residents with respect and dignity. Staff have a positive attitude in ensuring the residents have a good quality of life. They are proactive in ensuring that residents have access to assessments by other professional services, eg dieticians, SALT, GP and dentist. Although this resident is unable to take part in activities, I have observed that a good variety is provided for those residents who can participate. I am unable to comment on the standard of food as the resident in question is PEG fed. I am impressed by the high standard of cleanliness maintained by the home. Also, as this home provides nursing care, it is inevitable that there will be various degrees of incontinence among the residents and I am impressed at how this is managed. I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending St Paul's Care Centre to anyone in need of good nursing care.

In October last year my family was told my dad needed nursing care. For me, I felt like it was the end of my world and I was letting my dad down. St. Pauls was the second home I viewed. Straight away it felt good. I knew it was the place I wanted my Dad in. I visit everyday. I see the care everyone gets. 6 months on and I feel like the home is part of my family and I know my dad is happy and safe.

Always greeted with friendly, happy smiles from reception through to carers, nursing, staff and staff behind the scenes (cleaners/maintenance etc). Good to know that elderly parents are receiving excellent care, that they are safe, treated with respect, dignity and compassion when in a frail vulnerable position due to health/age. They deal with any problems (not always easy) efficiently but always with respect & care taking the resident/service user's comments on board and rectifying in a caring manner with respect. Overall very happy.
