“Despite initial concerns about my mother ‘going into a home’ from the very first contact with the wonderful staff at Appleby Care Home, we knew that we had made the right choice; the best choice for both my mother and for the family. Mother’s care has been exceptionally good for her 6 months stay and was outstanding as she drew closer to the end of her life. The staff are all competent, empathetic and friendly – without exception. This applies to the managers we met, the nursing staff, administrators, the carers, domestics and handyman. Each and every person was prepared to listen, share advice, understand and be positive about my mother’s care. I cannot recollect a single concern where I felt my mother’s needs were not being addressed and satisfied. The family consider ourselves to be very lucky to have found such a magnificent team of people who make Appleby Care Home such a wonderful place to place our trust in. We are very grateful for the collective effort in looking after our mother and feel confident in submitting this very positive review.”
