Always pleased with the care my mother receives. She is clean, happy and contented and always says, when I visit, that the staff are always kind, patient and look after her well. The staff continually encourage her to eat and drink. Her health is significantly better than before she became a resident.

We are extremely happy with all the staff and we found them very helpful. If I had any problems I could ask anyone and they have me advice that I needed.

After a transfer from the previous care home, it was like walking into a luxury hotel. The staff, from management to catering staff, were excellent in providing a safe and friendly environment. At all times the resident was treated brilliantly and in an emergency responded in very quick order. Senior staff were very helpful with future information.

My Uncle has been in Wellington Lodge for just over a year now. He seems to have settled in really well, the staff are really good with all the residents as I've seen. The Manager is always there to listen and to help, communication is very good also, emails to let you know what is going on within the care home and my Uncle personally, would recomm… end this care home greatly. My Uncle has brain damage from a car accident 50 years ago and now has dementia too, but we as a family are happy with the care our brother and Uncle receives, thank you to all the staff and the Manager.

I, as the wife of a resident who is suffering with dementia, am very pleased with my husband's care and the understanding and friendliness of the staff. Also pleased with the cleanliness of the home and the layout. Staff are always happy to help namely some staff members, to name just a few as I can't remember all the names and I do apologise for… that. Thank you Wellington Lodge.
