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 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.

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.

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.

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.
