Tallis House

When my mother was struggling to adjust to needing a care home Tallis House have been brilliant. They treat her as an individual having taken the time to get to know her. When she struggled with a need to feel useful they helped build her self worth through small manageable tasks and when she felt sad they stayed with her listening and helping to lift her mood until she felt better. The staff have been so friendly that now she feels very much at home. She loves the many activities and has built positive relationships with staff and residents who greet her with smiles and laughter whenever she goes in the home. We couldn't be more pleased with Tallis House - thanks

Very pleased with the care my mother gets, nothing seems too much bother. They are always ready to give her a bath and attend her needs. What matters to me is that she is happy here and she always tells me that she is and how lovely everyone is to her.

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.

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.

My parents have been resident in Tallis House for over a year now. I have always found the staff easy to approach and always willing to do more than their job entails. They react quickly to medical emergencies and they are always looking for ways to improve the care and the services they provide.

I STILL GO TO TALLIS HOUSE TO SEE A SPECIAL LADY CALLED DOROTHY.I BECAME FRIENDLY WITH HER WHEN DAD WAS ALIVE, SHE IS SUCH A WONDERFUL LADY. AT 93 YEARS OF AGE IT IS LIKE TALKING TO A 50 YEAR OLD. AT FIRST I FOUND THIS VERY HARD GOING TO SEE HER BECAUSE SHE IS IN THE ROOM OPPOSITE TO WHERE MY DAD WAS. BUT I HAVE MADE A TRUE FRIEND AND MADE A SPECIAL LADY VERY HAPPY.

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.

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.
