The staff at Elizabeth Court are wonderful. They have consistently treated both my mum and my family with kindness, empathy and respect. They have encouraged my mum to build on her interests and to actively engage in these, in the home, which in turn has increased her confidence and sense of personal achievement. I honestly don't know where we woul… d have been without them!

After Covid my mother was diagnosed with vascular dementia, living at home no longer became sustainable. As an independent individual, the last thing my mother wanted was to leave her own home. After several attempts and subsequent escapes, she moved into Elizabeth Court. The staff made her feel safe and cared for through a deep sense of compassion… , professionalism and buckets of humour. When returning to Elizabeth Court from recent hospital visits my mother always felt she was returning home. Our family feel an enormous amount of gratitude to all the staff at Elizabeth Court.

Realising that on discharge from hospital your father will not be able to return home is a shock. You are placing him in the hands of the unknown as he will need a care home. It is a difficult time. Thankfully we found Elizabeth Court. Our fears are allayed by an excellent, friendly, and knowledgeable team led by a formidable and very professional … manager and deputy manager. My father is happy. He is well looked after and is building a really good rapport with the staff and management, and meeting other residents. To everyone at Elizabeth Court a very big thank you.

From my first phone call, I knew this was going to be the place for my mother-in-law. Extremely helpful, arranged an assessment later in the afternoon at the hospital and called later in the afternoon to confirm they would be able to meet all her needs. Every member of staff has been welcoming which made my mother-in-law settle in very quickly. She… has really enjoyed her 6 weeks at Elizabeth Court and made many friends. Physical and healthwise has greatly improved which has allowed her to return to her own home.

I strongly believe the care provided is outstanding. This is due to many factors including the excellent carers and support staff, the extra activities including arts and crafts and gardening club, the fantastic range of variety of food and drinks on offer every day. This care home is amazing, the resident that I know is loving it here and is very … happy.

My mum came to Elizabeth Court after a fall - she had spent two weeks in the hospital with a urine infection and needed 24-hour care when discharged. I used to work past Elizabeth Court and always got a lovely feeling from the residents in the garden, so they were the first place I called. One lady answered the phone and couldn't have been more hel… pful. Two members of staff assessed Mum in hospital the following day, and my mum was transferred to the home the next day. The care she has received has been outstanding, and she settled very quickly. She is now a permanent resident.

We have found Elizabeth Court outstanding for its care and support for my mother, who has Alzheimer's/Dementia. Staff are very attentive and friendly whilst the management is in close contact and keeps me up to date with regard to my mother's well-being. Perhaps more activities would stimulate more; however, I am aware of my mother's condition. O… verall, I am very happy with the care my mother is receiving. Thank you to them all at Elizabeth Court.
