Review of Tallis House

Manager came to visit my dad at home first to do an assessment to discover his needs, medical care and like and dislikes. She was very friendly, professional and put my dad at ease straight away. I felt very comfortable and happy that my father would be looked after properly and would have no hesitation in recommending Tallis House to other worried or concerned family members. The staff were always friendly polite and helpful. I felt that they all made an effort and went out of their way to get to know my father. Thank you.

Review of Tallis House

Tallis House staff were exceptional in the care they provided for my grandmother in her final years. They were dedicated and professional and always made us welcome, especially on special occasions such as when our relatives visited from overseas and they provided catering for the event. In particular, Jackie must be mentioned as she embraced my grandmother and always sought to ensure she was happy and comfortable. All the staff, including the home manager were very attentive and we felt happy knowing they looked after my grandmother so well.

Review of Tallis House

My mother has been in Tallis House for almost a year. Moving her there has turned a situation which was stressful for all of us into one where we see mum happy and content in her environment. She has settled really well and seems happier now than in her own home. the staff are amazing, nothing is too much trouble, they manage to do things for mum that we were really struggling with especially getting her to eat. Happy customers.

Review of Tallis House

My mother-in-law has sever Alzheimer's disease and is now virtually blind. She has been looked after by the Tallis House team for a year now. It is a testament to the outstanding care and support both she and we have received since she has been here, that not only is she still alive, but also thriving as far as her condition allows. We are very grateful for the peace of mind and extra time with mum that Tallis House has given us.

Review of Tallis House

My brother got me here and they made me welcome. It was all clean and my room is nice. The manager is so helpful and if you have some trouble she will help you. She is always smiling. If you have your door open the carers come by to see if you are all right, if not they will come and see you later on and if they have time will talk to you and cheer you up. It is so clean and so happy here. Also the room is nice, which I like. I could not wish to be anywhere else, sometimes you have to wait your turn.

Review of Tallis House

Tallis House is a well run and well managed residential home. The standard of cleanliness are exemplary and the food well cooked, appetizing and varied. Residents can enjoy activities if they wish to partake and are taken on outings in the summer. If a resident falls ill they are dealt with immediately - a doctor called if necessary. The care workers are wonderful and patient with the residents and I wouldn't wish my mother to be anywhere else. I know that after visiting her everyday she is content and very well cared for and would not hesitate to recommend Tallis House to anyone looking for res.care.

Review of Tallis House

To date my mum has been a resident at Tallis House for two and a half years. They provide a clean,safe environment in which for her to live. The managers and carers work hard to provide quality care where she is treated with kindness,respect and dignity, although not medically qualified, the staff en-devour to accommodate and support her limited mobility and medical needs. My mum is very happy at Tallis House, this gives me peace of mind that she is cared for 24 hours a day within a kind, safe environment to live out her senior years

Staff are 5*. My aunt has been there for 14 weeks and settled in very quickly. She loves her room and is happy just to sit and watch her birds feed outside. Nellie is on the first floor and that makes her feel safe and secure. She loves the staff. I sometimes feel that the staff need an extra pair of hands. Maybe 1 more member of staff would ease the load.

Review of Tallis House

Finding a good care home is a daunting task when the need suddenly arises and relatives have the responsibility to find a solution. My aunt has been very independent all her life, despite her mobility problems becoming progressively worse, indeed after several falls to the point where one day she literally could not move and was taken to hospital. With no medical need to remain in hospital there was an urgent need to find a care home. Being mindful of my experience on visits to family and friends in other care homes in the past I knew I had to look around and visit a number of care homes to make the right choice and can honestly say I was very impressed with Tallis House and the friendly welcome from the staff on my initial visit. The manager and administrators are very helpful and always available in their offices in the large main reception area and convey the confidence of a well run establishment. There is always helpful courteous attentive staff available on the residents’ floors and lounges and my aunt receives the same attention whether in her room or in the lounge and frequently comments on how professional and caring the staff are. The room is a good size with its own toilet, very comfortable, well furnished and has good daylight and the bathing facilities on each floor are excellent. The food is good and plentiful together with as many drinks as my aunt requires. The home is very clean and a pleasure to visit and I know my aunt is well cared for. Tallis House is certainly one of the best homes in the locality.

Review of Tallis House

Since moving my Mother to the home, I have been impressed with both the cleanliness and quality of care that the home provides. The staff are always willing to listen to any concerns that the family have regarding Mother's welfare. I am always notified if she has had a fall(however minor) The food is always presented in a pleasant way e.g using tongs to serve sandwiches at teatime and asking the resident which sandwich they would like. There are always plenty of clean clothes for Mum ,and these are brought to her room in a covered plastic storage box to be placed in her drawers and wardrobe. On a hygiene level, the home does not smell unpleasant,unlike her former home!
