Mam moved into Kirkley Lodge in December 2022. Due to Dementia, we could not be more surprised at how quickly she settled in, which is down to the professional staff who are caring, patient and cannot be more helpful, along with their commitment. The family has seen a change in Mam which can only be described as positive and content. What was a wor… rying time for the family has been removed knowing she is being cared for by the wonderful staff in a lovely place where she is very happy. We cannot thank the staff enough, please continue with the great work you all do. Thank you.

My other has been a resident at Kirkley Lodge since May 2022. We have found the staff to be caring and kind. They take the time to get to know the resident's likes and dislikes and have helped us to make it a home from home for my mother. What can be an anxious time for families is made easier as they have kept us informed of all aspects of my moth… er's care. Every effort is made with personal care, cleanliness of the room and communal areas, also activities and entertainment. I am so pleased we made the move.

There has been a significant improvement in my mother's condition since entering the home from the hospital. Visitors are made welcome, and staff are generally very friendly. Overall, the experience has been positive, and my mother has settled in well. The management is approachable.

We found our friend very well looked after and settled well very quickly. He enjoyed his time in the home and was thoroughly spoilt by all the staff. At the end of his life, he was completely looked after with so much love and care. We cannot praise this care home enough. Many thanks to all the staff there. Great care home.
