The moment I stepped into Augusta Court Care Home, I knew that my mother would just love the warm and friendly atmosphere that all the qualified staff have to offer on a daily basis. My mother is celebrating her one-year anniversary very soon since moving there. She enjoys her time there very much and her room and en-suite bathroom are very nice, s… he has a window looking out and access to their garden and conservatory room too. There are always so many fun activities, celebrating birthdays or seasonal events with singers and musicians to entertain all the residents going on weekly and monthly. Thank you so much for taking care of my mother's needs and communicating to the family with certain needs promptly. I would recommend Augusta Court to anyone looking.

My aunt really loves to whole experience at Augusta Court Care Home. She is blooming and looks better now than at any time in the last five years or so. All staff are welcoming, supportive to both her and our needs. At a recent family get-together for her birthday, the staff accommodated our needs beyond our expectations. Thank you.

My passion and commitment is to make sure that the residents we look after live a happy and fulfilling life. I have been working for Anchor in different roles for over 14 years now and have enjoyed learning and progressing in each of the roles.
In my years of service at Augusta Court, I have gained a wealth of experience and knowledge on how to best deliver person-centred care for individuals who need my support and assistance. We have a great relationship with all residents and their loved ones.
Cooking is my passion and at Augusta Court I have the opportunity to not only cook for our residents but also involve them with the choices that are on the menu. I will always go out of my way to accommodate and adapt the menu for somebodies taste if required.
We work as one team and this reflects in the happy, compassionate and caring feel in our home. I look forward to meeting you soon.
