My mother recently moved into Victoria Court after a short stay in the hospital, no longer safe to be alone in her own house. It only took a few weeks to settle in and find her feet with the excellent support from all members of staff. She's found a new lease of life, which is so lovely to see, enjoying the fun and activities and making new friends… . It's lovely to know she's no longer lonely and surrounded by people who genuinely care, such a weight off my mind. I'll quote her saying, "It's the best I've done"!

Victoria Court is excellent. We were very worried about my gran moving out of her home, but the staff have been wonderful and my gran is very happy. This is a person-centred, welcoming place and I can't recommend it highly enough.

Very friendly, welcoming atmosphere. Lots of lovely touches. Snacks, fresh fruit and drinks always available. The activities are good. The singing was brilliant, with the residents joining in and led in a very enthusiastic way. Coffee mornings, with cake stands full of lovely cakes. The building is very clean and smells fresh.

My mother was a resident for over a year until her recent passing. The care she was given was to a very high standard.

The care my recently deceased mother received in the last day of her life was exemplary. The empathy and dignity were a sight to behold by all the staff to a person. How comfortable Mum was in her bed in her final hours will live with me for the rest of my days and how grateful we were whilst in her company in her final moments.

If you are thinking of finding a care home for a member of your family or friend Victoria Court is the place to be. The staff are excellent, a lovely home environment. My mum always says she is so happy there. She has been in the home for two years and had extremely excellent care, nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Her needs are catered fo… r and plenty of activities and always celebrate every occasion. I am always grateful when I leave my mum as I know that she is well looked after.
