Review of St Pauls Care Centre on Tuesday 8 April 2014 by Christine Sullivan (Partner of resident)

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.

Review of St Pauls Care Centre on Tuesday 8 April 2014 by Cynthia M (Sister-in-law of resident)

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.

Review of St Pauls Care Centre on Monday 21 October 2013 by Susan M (Very good friend of resident - closest thing she has to a daughter)

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.

At first sight it looks like a hotel, and service by management and staff is on par with some excellent hotels I have stopped at. The rooms are very good, with comfortable beds, and en-suite wet rooms. I hope when my time comes I will be places in something similar.

I have found the general conditions, and the friendly, helpful carers and management staff here to be excellent. My husband doens't generally join in with activities, preferring to stay in his room, but from what I have heard and seen when visiting him, there always seems to be plenty going on and it sounds very good.

Review of St Pauls Care Centre on Tuesday 6 August 2013 by M. Godfrey (Daughter of Resident)

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.

Review of St Pauls Care Centre on Wednesday 10 July 2013 by Diane C (Daughter of resident/daughter of service user)

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.

All the staff are friendly and attentive. My wife has been in the home for just over 2 years and the majority of carers and nurses looking after her were there when she first went in. This suggests good management and staff satisfaction. Friends who visit also say how clean and caring the home appears to be.

My mother is in stage 7 of dementia and needs 24 hour support and total care. All staff are kind and caring. Nurses are on each floor all the time. As soon as anything arises where nursing or medication is needed they give immediate and appropriate response. All staff are ready to answer any questions or concerns with kindness and respect. Every effort is made to create a homely environment in individual rooms and a friendly and co-operative environment in lounges. Personal and corporate celebrations and festivals are highlighted and celebrated. Individual nutritional needs are accommodated. Each person is respected and cared for, personal integrity is given priority.
