We looked at many homes before choosing one for Mum, but we knew instantly Eric Morecambe House was the one. It stood out from all the others for the cleanliness; the friendliness of the staff, the willingness to cater for Mum's unusual dietary requirements, the daily activities provided and the freedom to have Mum's bedroom as she wished. The whol… e ethos of the home seems to be centred around making the residents happy and we have not been disappointed. Keep up the good work, you are all amazing.

My father resided at Eric Morecambe House from 2015. The friendly, loving care he received from the staff was excellent. During June/July 2023 my father needed palliative care, the staff at the home coupled with the NHS community team looked after him during a very difficult time. The homecare staff have my upmost admiration. Thank you.

My mum moved into Eric Morecambe House just over a month ago with Alzheimer's dementia. Mum has settled really quickly and is very happy there. The staff have been great at helping her settle, the food is excellent and communication from the management team has been very good. It’s not an easy transition from home to a Care Home but the team at Er… ic Morecambe House have helped to make it as smooth as possible. Thank you.

Eric Morecambe House is the flagship establishment in the Anchor Housing group in our opinion. It's never been an easy decision to admit a relative into permanent care, for the relative of yourself. As a family, we are delighted with the whole approach that Eric Morecambe House has from settling, caring, meals, residents' views and care and mainten… ance of the building. Also, how thoughtful they are towards members of the extended family. We definitely made the correct decision to move our beloved mother here.

My mother came to Morecambe House in May 2022. From the initial guided tour by the home manager, we knew we'd made the right choice. The home is so clean and light, the staff bar none are all excellent. I always get a phone call if there are any updates about Mum. More importantly, she loves living there. She says, 'I should have come here years ag… o.'

The home is well run and the staff and facilities are excellent. It gives me great peace of mind to know that my dad is being well looked after and the staff keep me informed as to his situation. Highly recommended.
