These men and women are brilliant. They helped my mum settle in, and when it was her birthday, they made sure she had a good time, along with her family and friends. They are always pleasant and helpful towards me when I visit my mum, and nothing is too much trouble for them. What I really like is the respect and care they give to all the residents… ; thank you so much. These staff go above and beyond always.

I have been visiting my brother since May 2023 and there has always been a lovely atmosphere here at Sandstones. I see different members of staff and all are polite, helpful and welcoming. I believe that a happy place with happy staff and residents is a sure sign of excellent management. My brother's contentment here is so reassuring, so I know tha… t this is the best place with the best care for him. I wish to take this opportunity to thank them all for their kindness.

I feel confident that Mum is well cared for and that staff will alert me to any issues. The staff appear to be kind and treat Mum with dignity. The only thing I feel may need to be worked on is some of the activities, such as watching a film or having afternoon tea, because these are part of the usual routine anyway, not additional. Also, I was hop… ing the residents might be taken out sometimes, otherwise, excellent.

Since moving into Sandstones, Mum has become more social, chatty and generally happier due to the encouragement of staff to interact with others. I have witnessed the staff with many residents, and they know them all and treat them and their individual needs with real care and compassion, always with a smile, even in difficult circumstances. The en… vironment and all staff are always welcoming, and visiting is a pleasure, often with grandchildren and pets. I am now more relaxed knowing Mum is safe and happy. Thank you to all Sandstones staff.

I am really pleased with the care my mum is given. She has been a resident here since August 2019. The staff are friendly and very helpful, nothing is too much trouble. I can sleep easily knowing that my mum is in safe hands. Highly recommended.

I would like to say how thankful as a family we have been since my aunt went to live in Sandstones Care Home. It has become her home and despite initial difficulties settling, she is now happy and enjoying her life there. The staff from the manager, each carer, catering and ancillary staff should be commended on their approach and support to each… resident.
