"The team at Ash Croft House are exceptional. They gave our dad fun, love and laughter, as well as highly professional care and kindness during the last 18 months of his life. He quickly came to see it as his home and so did we.
Seeing the high standard of care and fun he was having each day, enabled us to enjoy our last months with him and this has been a great comfort to us. We will never be able to thank the whole team enough."

"My husband is extremely content. The staff are very caring and kind. I don't know about activities as he is bed-bound. He is peg-fed, so cannot answer you about food and drink."

"Due to Coronavirus, I have only seen mum through the window and once in the garden. She has trouble hearing and it was difficult to discuss any issues. However, every time I meet the staff they are always friendly and helpful I am happy with their feedback."

"I just want to say that my mother is very well looked after by the staffs including manager from this care home. Communication is excellent and treated my mum and other residents like their relative with dignity. Most importantly I'm also really impressed with how they handle things/hygiene during difficult COVID situation and it is evident that there is no residents suffered with COVID, especially viewing by myself who has background medical profession. Thank you to all the staffs there."

"Having previously had a bad experience at another care home we were relieved that mum settled well at Cedar Grange. We felt that the staff made a real effort to get to know mum and were genuinely fond of her. We were always made to feel welcome and the staff were very accommodating. The management team are proactive and forward-thinking. Staff training is the key to an excellent CQC report next time. Thank you."

"Due to the lockdown, the home is not available to for visits nor are residents allowed out. This is good under the covid19 conditions. I was allowed a 1/2 hour visit two weeks ago, and not having seen my brother for four months, he was very communicative and in excellent health. We talked as if I had seen him only a week before the visit. The home is doing an excellent job of caring for my brother."

"I have great admiration for the way Cedar Grange coped with the pandemic. Lockdown was managed knowledgeably, consistently and sensitively. The home adapted efficiently to constantly changing situations keeping all residents safe and contented. The staff were cheerful and imaginative in their approach to residents well being with letters home, celebrations and a wide range of stimulating activities. They were always happy to give telephone updates and demonstrated a genuine concern for the callers well being. The management team and staff work tirelessly to ensure our loved ones have the best life possible."

"The current situation is very difficult for everyone and particularly for the staff in the care homes where our loved ones live. I can say without reservation that my Dad and all the residents have been kept safe and secure by these wonderful men and women. You should be very proud of yourselves, not just for the care you give but for raising awareness of the work you do in the face of ignorance by our government."

I've been very impressed with the way this pandemic has been handled at this time, and the efforts they have gone to keep families in touch via letters, video chats and timed controlled visits (now the restrictions are starting to be lifted)."

"Woodlands has always been a lovely place for my mum. She has been treated with dignity at all times. As a family we have always been made to feel very welcome, invited to all of the activities which are arranged frequently. During this Covid-19 the staff have been nothing more than brilliant. They have coped with everything as well as being stressed with looking after their own families. Can't thank them enough."

"The care my dad received was excellent. He was always comfortable and warm and enjoyed the food very much. He received regular cups of tea and even a glass of wine. The staff were friendly and attentive. Most importantly his dignity was always respected. My dad was concerned about spending time in respite but his wishes were always respected so he was treated just like at home. High standards but not high price."

"My nan stayed at Cedarwood after surgery for cancer. She was living with vascular dementia, she loved spending time in the beautiful garden with friends she had made there. The staff are amazing at Cedarwood, they care as if the residents are their own family member. The home always smells amazingly clean. Highly recommended. Thank you to all the lovely staff."
