    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

As I live in Durham, I do try and visit Mum as often as I can, but can only say when I arrive and unexpected I get a very warm welcome from all of the staff no matter how busy they all are. The home is immaculately clean and very fresh with a lovely atmosphere. My mum has been there now over 9 years and is very happy and contented. I couldn't wish for a more loving home for my mum who is now 92 years old. Thank you to all the staff for looking after her and all her needs so well.

Botham Hall Care Home care home meets all my mother's requirements. The home is clean, comfortable and homely for the residents. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff and manager, even to the point of personal attention. The staff treat all residents with compassion and respect whatever the resident's situation maybe. I have peace of mind my mum is being well cared for at all times.

A very welcoming care home. They provide excellent care for my husband, who has been in the home for the last four years.

My father moved into Botham Hall in March 2014. He wasn't very happy to go there initially as he felt he could still cope at home, which was not the case as he had become a danger to himself. The staff were so friendly and welcoming that he settled in very quickly. He had always been a very private man and the staff respected this whilst encouraging him to get involved in activities and trips as much as he was able or wanted to.

In all the time my dad was there, I never heard any staff manager raise their voice to anyone, no matter how provoked. They were always smiling, patient and caring, right until the very end. They cared for and loved my dad and for that, I shall be forever grateful.

We never expected my mum would need to go into a home. All the news items talked about a crisis and neglectful care. Nothing could be further from the truth, as far as Botham Hall is concerned. My mum had 6 wonderful months receiving amazingly good care from a team of very committed individuals. The activities helped to keep her busy, she loved all craft work and this gave her great delight in painting and pottery. The food was wonderful, she ate everything, and this from a fussy eater. We could visit anytime and that's great as I live 200 miles away. We were able to make her room homely including her own chair and her adjustable chair in the lounge. The staff were always providing us with updates and stories about her, which helped immensely living so far away. Overall the staff made the place what it was, 100% caring and nothing is too much to help our relatives. Sadly mum died in February in the home and with us by her side. The staff were as upset as us.
If I need a care home it's this one!

Our mother was resident at Botham Hall Care Home from July 2016 until February 2017 when she sadly died. Mum had suffered from Alzheimers Disease and had been living with my family (daughter) in the months before she moved into care. Botham Hall staff were fantastic from day 1, the way that they welcomed and warmly cared for mum and supported us, especially in the first few weeks as she settled in. However, they were even more impressive with the quality of care offered at the end of her life recently. They ensured mum was always expertly cared for with love, patience and great attention and all the staff made myself and the rest of the family feel greatly supported and cared for through this difficult and we cannot thank them enough.

Choosing a care home is a daunting task, but we feel very lucky to have found Botham Hall for our mum. She settled in instantly and has now been living there for 1 year. It is a real home from home and is not institutionalised in any way. Mum is always well dressed, her clothes are always cared for. Mum is part of a new family now and every time we visit we are always welcomed with a cup of tea. It's very reassuring to know she is happy and safe.

Since mum arrived at Botham Hall Care Home beginning of Feb this year she has really settled in, the home is lovely and clean, staff are so friendly even down to the cleaners and laundry they are so pleasant, they can't do enough for mum and relatives. I and the rest of the family all agree we wouldn't want her in any other place. Well done to manager and all the staff :)

The home is well managed, but as with a lot of care home settings, staff shortages are a problem. I have seen new staff appointed and leave shortly after, quite often girls of a young age. The regular long standing staff members are very good. When a home is well staffed, moral is higher and the care delivered is better i.e residents hygiene/nutrition needs are of a better standard. Activity staff are very important to keep mind active and this home ensures this. Laundry and domestic staff are very good, although clothing when washed can go missing or get mixed up at times, perhaps a better system needed. My mum needs a lot of prompts with hygiene and dressing when staff are stretched this evident.

Christina Halonka, Home Manager at Botham Hall Care Home responded to this review on 06 Jun 2016:

Many thanks for taking the time to review Botham Hall - we really appreciate all comments and feedback. I’m delighted to read you’d recommend us to others. I can confirm that we never work short staffed - there may be times throughout the day where the home seems busier than others but we always have sufficient staffing levels. We also do have a new laundry system in place to illuminate clothes being misplaced. If you would like to discuss anything further with me, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Thank you again for your review. Best wishes, Christina.

Botham Hall Care Home is a friendly caring home. The residents are well cared for an the staff and management are very approachable if you have any problems or concerns. I would recommend it to my family and friends.

My mum is a resident in this care home, she has been there since 1 Feb 2016. Since she arrived there she has been so relaxed and chilled out because she hasn't any worries and she is so happy. She likes living there, says she is well looked after, so that makes me and my family happy that she is getting the care she needs.

I would recommend the staff are friendly and go out of their way. The rooms are kept clean while my mum was there, I rate it very highly. All residents are treated with respect. Plenty of choice in food. I know I made the right decision for my mum. She was safe and the rooms are a good size and they can bring their bits and pieces and own televisions.
