This is only a small home but as much as it has a nice feel and nice garden the care is very average. Lots of undertrained staff. Not enough staff. Food is appalling and the activities never change same old boring things aimed at people that a more mobile. Talking to management is like talking to a brick wall. In fact all 4 recent managers. That says a lot!

The Nursing Home itself is very homely and smaller. The gardens are lovely. Management is very friendly and lovely. What lets the home down and is very important are some of the carers! They just don't seem to care. They do the bare minimum and just leave the residents to their own devices. Communication between the different areas is just not there and there are no consequences if things are not done. This is not all the carers but the good ones are few and far between. The other is the food- it is just plain awful! It just appears to be the same mashed up unappetizing mess every meal! I have tasted it and it is nothing to write home about!

It was good, liked the size, not too big and not too small. The staff were not always able to do everything they needed to do to care for my grand dad, felt it may have mostly been because of lack of time and resources perhaps but it was disappointing. On one ocassion I felt it led to hospital stay for my grand dad that could have been better handled. eg My grand dad needed electolytes and they didn't have any and didn't have time to get them or give them to him so I had to do all that. He also had problems with gout and had a dressing that had to be changed regularly on his foot that wasn't done hardly at all and caused him quite a bit of distress and pain. They just again either forgot or didn't have the time to do it. One of the reasons he went into the facility was I was looking after him but because some of these things had to start being done by proper nurses like his foot he had to go into the facility - but I think I could have still done a better job with some of these things so that made me a bit upset particularly with this foot.
