THE THOUGHTS OF OUR FAMILIES

Julie C (Daughter of Resident)

My mum suffers from middle-stage Alzheimer's disease. She is unable to care for herself safely and so lived with me and my family following my dad's death. Recently, she had a stroke which took away all her mobility which subsequently meant I was no longer able to care for her in my home. I chose Wordsworth House after viewing many residential homes. The home has a pleasant relaxing homely feel. I have no regrets over my choice. The last year has been very challenging with the lockdown. Fortunately, we had 3 or 4 weeks of daily visits with Mum before lockdown restrictions. During this time, I got to know some of the staff quite well. I found them all kind, friendly and genuinely caring for all their residents. To have Mum in residential care and feel that she is cared for with dignity, respect and compassion and is safe and well, means the world to me and my family.

Lynne H (Daughter of Resident)

My mum has been residing at Wordsworth House care home for 6 years. She has severe dementia and is cared for extremely well. I have always found staff members to be very caring and look after my mum so well, even when she doesn't make it easy for them. I haven't been able to physically see her in nearly 12 months but the staff have kept me informed of how she is doing. I can highly recommend this facility to anyone looking for dementia care.

M C (Son of Resident)

I have always found staff members to be very caring and look after my mum so well, even when she doesn't make it easy for them. I haven't been able to physically see her in nearly 12 months but the staff have kept me informed of how she is doing. I can highly recommend this facility to anyone looking for dementia care.

Alan D (Son of Resident)

Very caring staff. Excellent service given to my late father and to my mother. Very helpful to all the family.

C T (Wife of Resident)

My husband has had the best care anyone could expect in this lovely care home, Wordsworth House.
The love and care my husband gets is just wonderful.
My mother spent three years here at Wordsworth House, she too was happy here, just like my husband, the staff really make him so happy.
My husband was at end of life when in hospital, we didn't want to lose him, the staff have got him back on his feet once again by feeding him and making sure his drinks are there and taking him into rooms etc including him in games.
