Finding a care home for a loved one isn’t easy but the staff at Tolson Grange made it easy. My father-in-law spent the last six months of his life there. He was cared for and treated with respect by the wonderful caring staff. I often walked into his room to find one of the carers talking to him and holding his hand. They picked up a serious proble… m and organised his hospital stay. As his end of life approached they helped us get him back to Tolson where he wanted to be. He died ten minutes after he got there. He had held on to get back there. The staff were all there and in tears, we all were. I cannot recommend Tolson enough and when my own father needs care I will take him to Tolson.

My Mum went into Tolson Grange 6 months ago. What a beautiful clean home this is. Mum has everything she needs and is looked after 24 hours a day. All the staff are caring friendly and accommodating. Mum loves the food which is very varied. There are lots of activities and excellent entertainment. I couldn't be happier knowing she is in a safe frie… ndly home, it's a pleasure to go visit her. Thank you to all the staff.

I find it odd that staff do not have name badges. My parents-in-law have been at Tolson for nearly 12 months and in all this time staff have not consistently had badges. Whilst name badges are useful for visitors they are essential for residents, especially those with dementia. Please can you get badges sorted ASAP? You can buy simple black badges … online and write names in white marker. Very simple. Thanks

A lady that I looked after privately in her own home, unfortunately had to go into full-time care. Whilst in the care home her private PA’s were still employed to visit her daily to help her with the transition from home to full-time care. I can not say enough how welcoming Tolson Grange is, the dining room where all the residents congregate is a … home-from-home experience. The girls will always greet you with a smile and offer you a drink or food, just on a visit. One of the girls in particular goes the extra mile, I can’t name her. Small with blonde hair she is amazing with the residents and the visitors. Tolson Grange with the time I have spent there, is definitely a home that I will recommend to potential family and friends for a warm safe environment for their loved ones. I have to say that I do miss my visits, hopefully see you again soon.

I always find the staff polite/helpful if I have any questions they are answered. If there are any problems or they require something for Mum they will contact me. Mum is looked after and safe, if I need reassurance Mum is okay, I can always ring and staff will give me an update, that gives me and my partner reassurance that we know she is in the r… ight place.

My father has been at the home for two years and the care my father receives is fantastic. I cannot thank the carers enough, when the carers come and chat with him you can see his eyes light up and he genuinely smiles, this is reassuring to family members that he is happy there. It is noticeable the improvements that have been made over the last 1… 2 months with carpets and furnishings and upkeep of the building. The management and staff are a credit to the home. Thank you.

My mum has moved into Tolson Grange and I cannot fault the care she has received from the manager and her team. The care workers are very caring and always around to talk to if there is anything to discuss.
