I visit my sister once a week, and I always find her happy. The staff are amazing; they handle residents with the utmost care. I particularly enjoy the activities they provide for the residents. To me, they fulfil the need of most of the residents with outside activities, i.e. visits to the parks, canal rides, gardening, shopping and seaside visits… . Getting out of those walls makes my sister less stressed. She has always enjoyed "going out". My only grip is the bedding; it needs renewing to make the room more pleasant. It is clean and tidy, but let one but the mix match coverings. I am so pleased she is in your care.

Lightbowne Hall in my experience is warm and welcoming, the staff are very friendly and caring. My dad has been there nearly a year now and sometimes he has been difficult but the ladies/gents have all met my dad's needs. They have trips out, days to the park/Blackpool and even boat trips are due next month. Nothing is too much trouble.

My mum has been in the home for about 5 years. The home has always treated my mum really well. The manager is really nice and helpful and is good at her job. Most of the staff are good with my mum and some go the extra mile to help. Two members of staff, in particular, I can't speak highly enough of, they are fantastic at their job, really good wit… h residents and my mum. A big thank you to you both.

My mum is very happy since moving into Lightbrowne Hall. The management and staff are very friendly and helpful and obviously care a lot about the resident's welfare. The rooms are excellent and the communal areas are very spacious and open. There is a good choice of food and activities. The pub and the tea room are regularly used. The home is alwa… ys very clean. My mum has been in numerous homes over the last few years and I would highly recommend Lightbowne Hall to anyone with a loved with who needs full-time care.

Lightbowne Hall provides a safe secure and family environment for its residents. Although the needs of each individual resident differ no one is excluded from events and occurrences within and outside of the home. I am very much assured by what I see that my relative receives excellent care and attention. I have never been in a care home as well ru… n as staff as this one.
