Alderwood prides itself on the care and attention given to residents and their families. Carers concentrate on getting to know you and your loved one, enabling us to look after physical needs and more importantly delivering what emotional support you and your family need.

The team accept that choosing a care home is one of the most difficult decisions a family member or advocate can make and are here to help you through that decision, through the move in and beyond.

Excellent care is the key objective of each of the team members. Caring for those who can no longer look after themselves is what they do best, with an approach that takes into account that although there will be aspects of daily care and activity that residents could not manage at home, carers continue to encourage independence wherever possible - thus enabling residents to make the most of what they can do on a daily basis.

Freshly-cooked food allows the home to pursue sound nutrition and pleasant surroundings make Alderwood a satisfying residence in which to spend a retirement.

Carers support an active lifestyle alongside professional care part of their core mission, endeavouring to ensure that both residents and visitors enjoy their time spent at the home. Has all of the usual benefits of a care home, including en suite rooms, excellent communal spaces and areas for residents to enjoy quiet times.

Also offers excellent activities at the home, which offer stimulation and engagement to all residents. An activities co-ordinator works with individuals to ensure that they offer activities that will suit each person and sometimes this means that one to one activity is more appropriate than group activities.

My wonderful mum passed away here yesterday after a debilitating illness. The care she received following her return from the hospital was second to none. Everyone involved treated her with the dignity and kindness she deserved even moving her bed to the window so she could look at the trees. I am so grateful that she got to spend her final days here rather than in hospital and would like to thank everyone concerned for making this possible. Once again thank you all. x

Thank you for your kind words, it was an honour and a privilege getting to know your mum.

Mum first arrived at Alderwood in 2014. The staff were very welcoming and gave much-needed reassurance to both mum and relatives. Her physical condition has improved greatly since being at Alderwood due to the good care she is receiving. She is happy that everyone knows her and enjoys the food which is tasty and well presented. The staff are thoughtful, caring and hard working and involve mum in making decisions about her care where possible. The staff treat mum with respect and consideration and are equally thoughtful when dealing with family members. The home is purpose built and is well maintained. It is a warm, comfortable and welcoming place. I am happy that mum is in a safe, healthy and caring environment.

Thank you for your lovely review Pauline.

During my 10-month stay at Alderwood, I was looked after with the utmost care and attention. All the staff were caring and conscientious and treated me with dignity and respect. The food was good and I always enjoyed my meals. In January a new manager was appointed and I feel that Alderwood was now in safe hands.

Alderwood has to be one of the best care homes. My mother was in a poor state of health when she went there and with the excellent quality of care she received from all the staff she very quickly improved. Staff treat all residents with dignity and care as if they are their own family. Nothing is too much trouble and they are always courteous to family members. There are no specific times to visit which is always a good sign as family can visit at anytime. I cannot recommend Alderwood more highly. It is a super place.
