Oakes Court Downham Market, Norfolk
Posted: 07 Apr 2014 by Geoffrey Mott (Son of Resident)
I cannot fault Oakes Court. All care homes should be like this. I am so thankful that my mother is so well cared for. There cannot be many homes that are better or even as good as Oakes Court. Thank you Norsecare and all your staff.

Belong Crewe Crewe, Cheshire
Posted: 28 Feb 2014 by YL (Relative of resident)
The staff at Belong Crewe could not do more to be supportive to both my parents and our family. They're friendly, caring and welcoming and genuinely have the best interests of their residents at heart. We really appreciate their efforts and support! However, it's ironic that Slimming World meets at Belong, because the food in the bistro is way too good to resist!

Oakes Court Downham Market, Norfolk
Posted: 28 Feb 2014 by Paul B (Son of resident)
My mother lived here for approximately two and a half years. The accommodation was excellent both in the 'open' part of the facility and in the dementia/Alzheimer's unit. There was a degree of privacy coupled with good levels of staff and attention to the needs of the individual. The staff were professional but with a caring attitude. I would recommend this facility to others.

St Monica Court Bristol
Posted: 28 Feb 2014 by Diana Goodwillie (Resident's Daughter)
I have known St Monica for 50 years - having worked there at weekends at 15. My mother initially went into the supported housing 24 years ago, then sadly after her husband died and dementia gradually took its toll, she lived in the specialist unit, then eventually going into the care unit - all within the Cote Lane site. It is the most exceptional facility with exceptional care for both the resident and family. I would without reservation recommend St. Monica Trust to anyone.

Richmond Nantwich Nantwich, Cheshire
Posted: 22 Jan 2014 by Molly Stones (Resident)
In my view Richmond Village is as good as you can get. When I returned from hospital I was offered every kind of help. My tablets were taken care of. 'Would I like a bath?' Oh boy, how wonderful was that! Transport back with a carer to the Village with wonderful flowers to greet me at the door. The staff are all kind and cheerful and helpful.

Robert Kett Court Wymondham, Norfolk
Posted: 16 Jan 2014 by Liliane Gunton (Resident)
After visits to other care homes, this one stood out (cam first above all others in every respect). There is a very welcoming atmosphere. The carers are particularly thoughtful and aware of your needs when you are not well. It is a pity the shop has gone as it was useful.

St Joseph's Chelmsford, Essex
Posted: 09 Jan 2014 by Beryl Whitaker (Parent of service user)
We are pleased with the care given to our son Russell by the nursers & carers, he seems to be improving very slowly day by day as we visit him every day. We are in the process of moving closer to St Joseph's to be nearer to him as my wife is driving a 34 miles round trip from Black Notley every day and she will be 84 this January and finding it a strain. Thank you .(Russell's father)

Laburnum Grove Thetford, Norfolk
Posted: 27 Dec 2013 by Patricia Clark (Car Home Resident's daughter)

Newdale Court Newbury, Berkshire
Posted: 04 Dec 2013 by Danese Rudd (Daughter of resident)
My mother really blossomed in her first year at Newdale. The staff encouraged her to join in the activities and this enabled her to make friends. The stimulation of being in a bustling environment made her much more lively and outgoing - she had been very isolated previously. Unfortunately she became unwell and was hospitalised but on her return the staff were amazing even though she was very challenging. Slowly she is regaining her former zest for life with their encouragement. I cannot recommend Newdale highly enough.
