Review of Kew House

My wife Elizabeth has advanced Alzheimers. I looked after her at home as long as I could but it became cleat that she would have to move into full time care despite the fact that she is only 57, she has now been in Kew House for five months. I cannot speak highly enough of the facilities, the staff and importantly the range of activities on offer for the residents. Elizabeth's condition continues to deteriorate but she is looking more settled and content than she was for some months before leaving home.

Review of Kew House

A very caring environment where care is delivered to a very high standard. The entire staff, whatever their individual roles and responsibilities, are trained to interact with residents at all times. My wife was admitted as a high needs dementia patient; staff at Kew House successfully managed her challenging behaviour so that she settled in, in just 4 weeks. She now feels secure in the environment she feels is her home. The quality of the building and facilities provide comfort and dignity to patients.

Review of Kew House

My mother, aged 106, has been in Kew House for just over two months, having been living in a sheltered flat. It has been a difficult and stressful settling in period during which we have had tremendous support and understanding from the manager and his team. The carers have been unfailingly kind and patient. My mother likes her room which is large and she has been able to bring some furniture, china, and pictures from home. She is very comfortable and well looked after in extremely pleasant surroundings. She is now happily settled.

Review of Kew House

I hesitate to recommend the home at the moment as there are serious staff shortages and the service for residents has gone down in the last few months. A well attended meeting in the home last night pinpointed these issues and we are losing the current manager who has only been at the home for a few months. I can however strongly recommend the location, facilities and cleanliness of the home, and the politeness of reception staff and unlimited, unfettered access for relatives.

Review of Kew House

I have found the nursing staff and carers at Kew House do a wonderful job. They are always cheerful and on the whole pretty happy. They work extremely hard and I, as a relative, am very pleased with the care my relative receives. I viewed some 40 care homes before finding Kew House ... as they say 'save the best to last'. I would also add that the receptionists are most welcoming and pleasant.

Review of Kew House

The ambiance of the entire building is just right and you feel at home on every visit. The staff are very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Our questions were answered openly and have continued to be dealt with well. Dad immediately took to Kew House and enjoys the food and the optional activities. He seems to have a good relationship with most of the staff. Out of all the homes we viewed before Dad moved in, this was our first preference. Dad viewed Kew house without us being present - and took to it immediately.

Review of Kew House

My mother's health has definitely improved since coming to Kew House. The staff are all very caring and helpful. The activities have improved and there is something every day from knitting to exercises, flower arranging to cake making. The day trips are also most enjoyable for all the residents, including shopping trips, Richmond Park, etc.

The general environs and standard of accommodation are high. Staff are friendly and efficient, turnover is somewhat high, although I imagine that is normal for the industry. Activities are good although more and more variety would be welcome. Food and drink are of excellent quality and very varied.

Review of Kew House

Kew House is a recently purpose built care home featuring all modern amenities. It is to my way of thinking streets ahead of the other care homes for miles around, the food is not yet up to standard that might be expected from a top class establishment but it is steadily improving. A new managerial team has just been appointed that shows every sign of maintaining and improving facilities and standards even further. I would recommend this home to anyone looking for modern surroundings to spend remaining years of his or her life.
