Alston Court Westcliff-on-Sea, Essex

Having spent 3 years researching residential retirement homes throughout Essex Alston Court stood out head and shoulders above the rest. The reason we chose Alston Court is the dedicated staff who are available 24 hours a day. The Manager and his staff keep a gentle eye of the residents noting any changes. The staff are able to feedback to family members which we have found very reassuring. The property is approached via a lavender drive. The apartments are all a bit different to each other and thoughtfully planned for future wheelchair use. The residents' garden is lovely with wisteria archways which are delightful in spring. Alston Court also has a restaurant which has been a godsend for mother. The food is freshly prepared every day. Not only is she eating well for the first time in ages she is also socialising. Highly recommend.

Lloyd Court Holt, Norfolk

I have found the staff all very caring and pleasant. They are quick and efficient to respond to any emergency. My step mother is very happy living there and I am extremely pleased to know she is so well cared for. All residents are encouraged to be as independent as possible but have the assurance of support as necessary. The whole place is kept very clean and the grounds are lovely.

St Augustine's Place Great Yarmouth, Norfolk

My father has been a resident for 5 years and we couldn't want any more for my father. He has the ability to look after himself in the one bedroom bungalow but also has all the amenities to get involved and join in with all the activities. It has most certainly helped him as a person since the loss of his wife. I highly recommend this place.

I visit a friend regularly and I would recommend this care home to anybody. I am struck by the cleanliness, the facilities, beautifully kept gardens with easy access and a very caring staff who care for each individual (and address their personal needs). Also excellent food.

Beauchamp Gardens Taunton, Somerset

The home was initially privately owned, but was taken over by Care South, a programme of building and renovation was carried out. * The home is beautifully furnished with lovely grounds. * The staff - carers - laundry ladies - cleaners - nurses - are all well trained and show a great interest in the welfare of their residents. * A great programme of activities is organised by Regie and Hannah. * The staff all strive to promote a "family" environment and always refer to is as "home" for the residents.

Beauchamp Gardens Taunton, Somerset

Excellent staff - always very pleasant and caring without being patronising. Very "family" feel to the place despite a beautiful country house. My mother is very content and has made many friends with both residents and the staff. I call in every week as do the rest of my siblings at all times of the day and we have all been very pleased with the care and approach to care which is evident at all times. After much heart searching about my mother - who has Dementia - coming into Beauchamp House I can honestly say that I am very pleased that we made the the decision for her to come to Beauchamp House last year.

Alexandra Court Birmingham, West Midlands

My first impression of Alexandra Court was a well presented, immaculately clean home set in beautiful landscaped gardens. When my mom arrived at Alexandra Court she was in poor health , lacking in confidence and had many health concerns. Care manager Anita Shan and her excellent team made her immediately welcome and with their support, kindness and genuine care, mom has now made rapid progress and has a renewed confidence. Before deciding on Alexandra Court we had visited numerous care homes in the area and had many concerns regarding finding a suitable home that would fulfil moms needs. We now feel justified that we have made an excellent choice, mom has settled immediately, is very happy and enjoying the warm and relaxed atmosphere at Alexandra Court, credit must be given to all of the kind and caring staff who work there.

St Germains Grange Redcar, Cleveland & Teesside

I have recommended Saint Germains to my best friend Richard Firth. He visits me every day and is very impressed with the quality of my apartment and the service of the staff. Because of this Richard has applied for an apartment here at St. Germains for himself. He has written in the first instance to the Scheme Manager here at Saint Germains and we are awaiting a reply. Richard is a very polite and personable man who would be a great asset to the community here and I hope his application is successful.

St George's Park Burgess Hill, East Sussex

I would definitely recommend this care home. The staff Emma (Manager) and all carers down to the receptionist care excellent and are compassionate, caring and kind. My Mum was here for 9 years and sadly passed away on the 15th May 15. With their guidance, love and compassion my Mum's life was beautiful to the end. A big thank you to them all. God bless then x

Barchester Southgate Beaumont - Assisted/Independent Living Apartments London

My mother moved into an assisted living flat in this complex in May 2014. It has provided excellent accommodation with good care and support visits, good catering and activities. However, by later in 2014 my mother become less able to live with the independence required in such a flat. It was then that Beaumount Southgate came into its own. She was able to move immediately and with minimum disruption into a room in the nursing home element of the complex. Where she was treated with excellent care and dignity until her passing in April 2015 aged 99.

Bircham House Cambridge, Cambridgeshire

My mother Doreen attends the day centre four days a week, she is ninety one. Her health has improved, she was lonely and quite confused since the death of her husband four years ago. I am delighted with the care she receives the staff are kind, considerate and extremely professional in their approach. I would love it if she could attend five days instead of four!

Barchester Stamford Bridge Beaumont - Assisted/Independent Living Apartments York, East Riding of Yorkshire

I have been a resident Barchester Manor Court since December 2011. Having lived alone for many years prior to coming here I have appreciated the company of the other flat dwellers, where we join together for various activities, ie music, play reading, board games, trips away , general discussions. It is ours to choose or not. As in all communities things can go a little wrong occasionally then madhouse comes to mind! but taken all round very nice madhouse!!

Alexandra Court Birmingham, West Midlands

Alexandra Court is situated in well-maintained grounds and provides a warm, friendly and family environment with individual flats for residents. Cleanliness is a high priority with cleaners working every week day. All staff are conscientious, approachable, professional and friendly, promoting a calm and relaxing atmosphere. Lunch and tea are served in the communal lounge, which are delicious and nutritious. The communal lounge also has a large TV and provides a focal point for socialising with other residents, if they wish to do so. A large range of local shops are within walking distance. My mother spent some very happy times there and she could not have lived in a better place. It was the high degree of professionalism of the staff that contributed to her being so happy and content at Alexandra Court. I cannot praise the staff, atmosphere and environment too highly.

Edith Moffat House North Shields, Tyne & Wear

My mother spent the last two years of her life in Edith Moffat House. The staff, ably led by Gary, were, without exception, kind, caring, hard working and good humoured. It was lovely to see both the older and younger members of staff, go about their work with such compassion. They work as a team, carers, kitchen staff and cleaners all contribute. This is not a care home because the residents are tenants but there is 24 hour care and as many visits are made as required. The tenancy is an advantage in that residents keep all their benefits, My mother, although confused, really enjoyed the interaction with the friendly staff. I would unreservedly recommend this facility.

Belong Atherton Manchester, Greater Manchester

The staff were very welcoming when mum moved in and have looked after her very well. They have been particularly attentive to her skin problems and have acted swiftly to prevent bed sores developing when she has been confined to bed. The facilities are very good and for those who are well enough to join in there are opportunities to participate in activities with the local community. The staff are well trained in dementia care and have endless patience with the residents and do their best to make them feel at home.
