My Mother was admitted to Chesterton Lodge following her hospital admission having had a series of falls. At this time she was not eating and struggling to walk. The staff were wonderful with her, taking care of her every need and making her feel safe and cared for. I am so amazed at the improvement in Mum, so much so that she will returning to her… home. Thank you Chesterton Lodge - you are all amazing.

Pleasant residential setting, exceptionally clean very good meals. However, after comparison with other care homes, I feel this home provides a basic level of care. The care should reflect dementia-centred resident support as these are the main service users. There are no or very few activities and from what I have seen the residents do not get t… o even access the lovely gardens. I would imagine due to low staffing levels. Like a greenhouse in summer no air conditioning. Other homes in the area run by the same company are a delight to visit and see what activities the residents have been involved in uploaded onto Social media. Acceptable if you want your loved one to sit in an armchair all day. Do your research ignore the CQC report and compare with other care providers. Scratch away at the surface and read the reviews.

Finding a care home for your loved one is something we hope we will never need to do - but if necessary, of course, we all want the best! At Chesterton Lodge, we found the absolute epitome of the perfect care home. Yes, the building is new, purpose-built, safe and secure - all you would want. However, its crown jewel is the staff - professional,… caring, compassionate, sensitive, and I go as far as to say loving. I feel personally humbled by everyone's dedication here. They are all so proud of this home, and rightly so. We feel so lucky to have found it. Don't hesitate to look around it.

Chesterton Lodge Care Home has been home to my elderly, frail father for the past month. The staff are utterly fantastic and all of them show complete care and commitment. The rooms are bright and airy and food is plentiful and of a high standard. Overall, we are very satisfied with the service provided.

My grandma has been at Chesterton Lodge for over a year. The home doesn’t have a stable management team in place and has seen multiple changes in 12 months. The home is decorated nicely and the staff are kind and friendly. The residents do appear to be bored though and spend time asleep in the lounge, I don’t see any activities. It would be nice t… o see activities in the home and pictures on their social media page so other family members can see them. The food is presented nicely and residents are encouraged to sit together for a dining experience. My grandma's room is spacious and is well maintained. There is one carer (I don’t know her name) who brings her dog into the home and she is brilliant with my grandma.

Mum was in Chesterton Lodge Care Home for some years. The staff are always helpful, pleasant and showed great care with Mum and my family. There has been a lack of management over the last few years but hopefully they have now got a permanent person in place. If there had been any issues they have always addressed them promptly which you can't ask … for anything more. I would certainly recommend Chesterton Lodge for anyone looking for respite or permanent care.

Chesterton Lodge Care Home is a lovely care home. My sister is quite happy and contented there, looked after well and safe. The two questions I have not answered are; 1) Management - since my sister went into the care home there have been several managers and I did not get to know them. (There is now another). 2) The price of a week's care is fa… r too expensive.
