"One week of respite. Very warm and friendly staff throughout. Excellent food with a good variety. Choice of activities although not used on this visit. Spotless - lovely decor. Safe, well-kept gardens. I like the touches such as tea/coffee/cakes/water available to all in the foyer. Linen tablecloths, small lounges for family visits, outdoor furniture."

"Superb care from everyone, from entering the home, for both residents and family alike. Absolutely nothing was too much trouble and this commitment came from every member of staff and everyone made my mother in law's final weeks the very best they could have been. Care with compassion and dignity and she loved it there, all while fully supporting both her and her family, with a level of care and compassion that was second to none. Nobody could do better!"

"Recently refurbished under new management. Residents are treated as individuals and respected both by management and carers. Nothing is too much trouble for the carers and families are made welcome when visiting. Management and office staff are available when requested and are always welcoming and friendly to all."

"The Improvement we have seen over the past couple of months has been fantastic to watch. The food has improved dramatically and level of care is very good. Mum has now joined Dad here and, although she has quite a high level of care needs, she has settled amazingly well and is being looked after brilliantly. Thank you."

"My mother has been in here for nearly 18 months her treatment from all the staff has been excellent, she is very happy at this home. My mother is allowed breakfast in bed if she wants to(which she does most days.) The staff are all very approachable from the carers to the nurses, admin to the manager, cleaners to chefs.The staff are also excellent at dealing with internal family problems and differences of opinion within the family over the resident's care and needs. They are diplomatic, friendly, reassuring comforting, at this difficult time when tough decisions have to be made about our loved ones. My mother has become incontinent, she is never left in wet pads or clothes and even the chair covers are removed straight away so it never smells. If this home is still run in the same way when my health fails and I am no longer able to be cared for at home I am booking myself a place here. It is also reassuring to the residents knowing that their loved ones are also supported when the need arises."

"My husband had excellent care throughout his short stay. He was treated with dignity and kindness by a group of carers he came to know well. When he died the whole family were well treated."

"A very good home with large gardens for walking. It is bright and clean, also good standards including all linen. I found the big drawback was the quality of the food with the kitchen staff continually changing. The reason for leaving was the very high price per month for the service I was getting ie apart from a room and meals, no nursing was needed."

"Good quality care from the staff. Although busy they try to take time out with the residents. Food is nourishing and varied with a good selection for diabetics. Activities are available for those who wish to partake."

"In my mother's words she "couldn't be better looked after". We were told on admittance that residents were taken out in a minibus - this has never happened. Mum looks well and is happy, these are the priorities."

"Find the staff very friendly and welcoming - no problems when asking about a resident. The only complaint would be car parking - lines for spaces not clear."

"My wife has been with Bloomfield for nearly 8 years. When my mother needed to go into care, we chose Bloomfield. Think that says it all."

"Very happy, enjoyed the meals and service. Bingo and related games and good entertainment. Staff and carers very friendly, felt at home. But too expensive on my income."

"My husband has been to Bloomfield for respite care several times and I have always been pleased with the care he received and also the help and consideration shown to me. The chef made a birthday cake for my husband and served it herself which was very kind."

I feel compelled to write to you about the care given to my father John Bolwell in the last few weeks of his life at Bloomfield Care Centre, Paulton. All staff gave him 100% care, nothing was too much trouble looking after him and his family. From first walking into Bloomfield meeting Daisy and being shown around meeting all levels of staff I knew this was the place for my father. All the staff were so caring but one was exceptional, Sassia Turner showed extreme levels of care and kindness. I would appreciate it if her efforts were noted. Everyone we met was not only professional but also very caring.

I was always impressed with the attention and understanding shown by all staff with whom I came into contact with when visiting Bloomfield. This caring attitude was exemplified by Denise coming in on her leave day to attend my loved one's funeral.

In addition, we are immensely indebted to everyone who helped to make it possible for her husband to attend the funeral. This includes the ladies who got him out his bed and dressed, and the provision of the minibus to take us to Haycombe Crematorium - again, with carers on hand. Without all this help it would have been impossible to get him there.
