My grandmother is not looked after very well. She was put in this home to prevent her from having falls at home. She has since had falls at the home. New clothing and other items bought in for her are always missing and staff members can never seem to find them. She is diabetic and they are giving her far too much sugary foods. She keeps being give… n other resident's dirty stained underwear even though new fresh underwear has been provided for her. The care and attention to detail for each individual service user is shocking and almost non-existent. Worst decision ever allowing her to be in a place like this.

I came to visit my Aunt who has been at the Home for past few years, it had been some time since I was last able to visit and I spent a lovely time at the Home. I observed the staff being very caring and warm to not only my Aunt but the other Residents also. The staff team came across happy in their job. There was fun activities for the Coronati… on on and all the other Residents looked happy and were joining in. My Aunt presented as very well and she looked healthy too. I have always found staff and Management approachable and responsive.

The staff at Holmpark are amazing, they have great patience and have always kept my mum immaculately clean, and they make visitors feel welcome and included. Mum increased weight, due to the good food and enjoyed the regular cups of tea and the tasty cakes. The medical care Mum receives is of a high standard. The room is very pleasant and clean, an… d mums clothes are always clean and ironed. Mum has been taken out on shopping trips with the staff, and thoroughly enjoyed being able to spend some money! I am kept well informed with Mum's health care. Staff also take time to spend some one to one time with mum, and varnish her nails whilst they are talking to her and my mum always liked having nice nails. I have been very impressed with every aspect of the care offered at Holmpark.

Had been unable to visit my Uncle for some time due to Covid and living abroad and had concerns due to the long period of time since I had visited. On coming to visit I found staff very friendly and welcoming. My uncle looked healthier and happier than he was over 2 years ago, this was such a relief. The Home has had some works done and is very… well presented. I was there at lunch time and the food was very nice and appetizing. I spoke with the Managers and Admin who were very approachable.

When I bought my father to Holmpark I was anxious, it's a big step. I was immediately put at ease with the genuine care the staff showed, nothing was too much trouble. His room was clean, modern and personalised. I have seen a change in my father, he is so happy and content. He tells me about the good food, the entertainment and friends he has made… . All management team are very approachable.

My sister has lived at Holmpark for over 2 years, in that time I feel she has been cared for well, all her needs met. Has been comfortable and safe. The staff have always been friendly and the home has been particularly careful during the pandemic. I feel that my sister is living in a home that meets her needs.
