It is so nice to visit my mum and see her happy and smiling. She looks and feels healthier now than when she was at home alone. All the staff are very approachable and always smiling. As soon as we visited on the first occasion, we knew this was the place for Mum. It is always immaculate.

We were particularly pleased with the care and respect from the individual carers. My father said how kind all the staff had been. He also loved the food.

The care and support provided at Ridgemount for my mother has been excellent. The enthusiasm of the staff in assessing and then welcoming my mother to the care home was great to see and provided confidence that Mum would be well cared for in Ridgemount. This confidence was confirmed by the caring staff during her stay in the home. Unfortunately, my… mother aged 92 died due to frailty of old age in the care home this month. The support that both my mother and I received during this sad time was very good. Thank you to all your staff.

My mum has lived at Ridgemount for over a year. During this time, she has improved in terms of eating and drinking regularly (she has gained much needed weight) and seems more engaged and happy. The staff are lovely and really look after the residents. They like my mum as she loves to chat and she is more like her normal cheeky self, thriving havin… g company and people to talk to.

My weeks respite stay at Ridgemount was very happy. The carers were very kind and helpful and always responded to the button being pushed in less than 2 minutes. The food was good and I was given hot drinks whenever I wanted them. My room and ensuite were comfortable. There were church services in the home and music and entertainment most days.

Such a lovely home for my Nan. Staff always happy and so very caring. I popped in when they had a singer, that came for the Valentines event. He was amazing. My nan was up dancing and singing with staff and other residents.
