Latest Care Home Reviews

My mother is in a very good home, well looked after. Food good, rooms clean. Staff appear to be very caring. I live in Canada so difficult to give an assessment on daily or constant visits. I have just spent six days with her and taken her out for lunch, afternoon teas. Did not see any activities taking place. I telephone frequently and staff are very courteous and helpful. My mother appears and says she is content. The new manager is very well qualified. She is very caring and patient with residents. I have no concerns about my mother being in Alexander House.

Ryton Towers is a well-managed, immaculate and enormously friendly care home. In the time my mother has been there I cannot fault the approach of the staff, they are thoroughly professional, helpful and extremely affable. This is the second care home in which my mother has been a resident and the first was excellent but it difficult to articulate just how outstanding Ryton Towers is and still do the other justice. The home is extremely clean and the level of care my mother receives is truly outstanding in every respect. At all times the staff are always willing to help and when I have had questions about her care, the manager(s) and staff have gone the extra mile to ensure that they explained everything in detail. It is not difficult to see that care homes of Ryton Towers' standard are a rarely seen organisation, and much sought after.

Oakdene Rest Home is a lovely home full of extremely caring staff. The home is tastefully decorated throughout and the food is good and plentiful.

Activities are well thought out and planned with each of the residents in mind and we found it to have a lovely family atmosphere.
