There appears to be changes with the new manager who listens and ready to help with any worries and concerns. It appears that there will be more activities etc. Unfortunately my mother doesn't choose to take part, but good for other residents. I would wish for opportunities for outings in the future. I am relied upon by mum to get her out of the building. I know staff shortage can be a problem. The carers are all good, caring and kind, but feel they are overstretched some days as there times at weekends when its hard to speak to someone by phone. They do their best though.

Helen Chermside, Customer Service Executive, Ideal Carehomes Head Office at Coppice Lodge responded to this review on 13 Jan 2016:

Thank you for taking the time to review Coppice Lodge and for bringing these matters to our attention. Ideal Carehomes has recently employed three Regional Activities Executives who will be tasked with assisting our homes to organise a varied range of activities including trips out for the residents. We hope that these changes will help you to be able to take you mum out more often, and on more varied trips. If you would like to discuss this matter further, please feel free to contact the home directly.

I am generally satisfied with the standard of care except;
General appearance of my wife , I would like more attention to hair etc.
I am certain that many of the clothes worn by my wife are not hers.
Furniture needs cleaning/replacing (large).
Could I also suggest please that when the home is closed for any reason that I (and other relatives) are told by email. I have twice visited the home to find it closed.

Of all the care homes we looked at Coppice Lodge was by far the best. We are pleased with the care and information given to us by the staff. We have had some issues but these were dealt with very professionally. My only concern is the change of personal but I think this is the norm with the care professional. The hairdressing service is great and chiropodist. My mother-in-law can be quite difficult but most of the staff deal with her very well.

The care my dad receives is very good. The food and staff are excellent, they are their when needed. More staff would be good if possible but overall the home is very good.

Overall I am very happy with the care received by my friend who has very severe dementia and has lost the ability to communicate. The staff are caring and the food excellent. More thought needs to be given, however, to activities on the dementia units. Scary Halloween films with curtains drawn to evoke cinema are unsuited to people who hallucinate and think they have to find their way home. Music needs to be age appropriate. Pop music or heart, smooth or capital radio may seem "old" to a young carer but contrary to their belief people between 85-95 were not listening to pop at the time they went into care. CD's of soundtracks of musicals or songs of the 40's, 50's or 60's along with light popular classical music would much better evoke youthful memories and would have a calming effect.

Whenever we visit our friend we find a warm welcome by staff, always a cup of tea or coffee offered. Our friend appears to have settled here well and appears contented - despite the fact she is almost blind and her hearing has deteriorated, making it hard to have conversations as I feel that I am shouting and everyone else can hear. She also says they don't have any activities but I think this is because its too much trouble for her to join in. The home is always very clean and warm. Staff are very friendly and appear to know their jobs well. She tells me the meals are very good too. My one bug bare is having to lean over when talking to her as I suffer arthritis and back problems, making it uncomfortable and painful. I am 75 years old myself.
