What our families say on carehome.co.uk

"Finding the right care home for a loved one is always difficult. We had to find one for our father and looked around many in the area. We looked at one called Barchester Corrina Lodge Care Home and we just felt at ease straight away, it felt like a home rather than a glorified hotel or hospital-type setting. We opted for Corrina Lodge and can honestly say we are so pleased we did. The staff are amazing and nothing is too much trouble for them. We felt safe leaving our loved one there knowing they’d be well cared for. On our regular visits, we became friends with many of the staff and it felt like a home from home. Our family was always made to feel welcome and we attended some of the events they held to let families be together there and enjoy an event, like Easter with egg hunts which the kids enjoyed immensely. For anyone looking for a care home for a loved one, I’d really recommend booking a visit to Corrina Lodge and seeing what they have to offer and speaking to some of the amazing staff there."

"My mum joined Barchester Corrina Lodge Care Home in November. I looked at a number of nursing homes and so pleased we chose Corrina Lodge. The manager and nursing staff always have time to speak with you and keep you updated on your loved one. All the staff are lovely, kind and caring. The activities team work hard on keeping the residents busy. It is also nice to walk in, have a cup of tea and piece of cake which is always available to the residents and visitors. Thank you for looking after my mum."

"Varchester Corrina Lodge is one of the best care homes for elders and stroke patients. Staff are friendly and helpful. This care home provides exceptional services to all residents as far as I am concerned. Highly recommend this care home for those who are looking for care services."

"I have been resident at Corrina Lodge for coming up to four years now and can confirm that most things are ‘adequate’ but no more. Unfortunately, I have had trouble with the current manager, almost from when he started. He doesn’t seem to like answering questions about my care. I believe that he is overworking the poor care staff, who daren’t complain because most don’t have English as a first language and are terrified of the sack. If anywhere ever needed an active trade union, it is Corrina Lodge. Now, that manager has decided to issue a 28 day eviction notice against me with no proven accusations. I’m sure none exist, I asked to install CCTV at my expense to prove my impeccable behaviour and eviction is the result. At Christmas too! Incidentally, I have multiple sclerosis, not dementia, but I don’t expect the manager cares what it is."

"I was really pleased when I first visited Barchester Corrina Lodge Care Home, I was shown around by the administrator officer, introducing me to some of the staff and showing me some of the facilities available to the residents. Also, I found the home very clean, tidy and well-decorated. I would certainly recommend this home to anyone looking to place their loved one here."

"Poor care, and lack of proper pain relief for 4 weeks after major surgery. My mum was walking with a zimmer frame before she got to Corina Lodge. She is hoisted everywhere and sits in a wheelchair all day. Dont know why they have comfy chairs in the lounge as everyone is in wheelchairs. No attempt to mobilise her. They sedate her every night. Really hate visiting my mum here it really upsets me."

"My wife is receiving the best care regarding the constant pain she is suffering which the doctors and nurses are doing their best to get the pain under control. Also, the care staff help to keep her smiling. The only thing I would like to see happen is as my wife is bedbound and at the moment unable to get into the wheelchair I purchased for her when she was at home, is restricting her movement when the harness remains around her after being hoisted out of bed so she's unwilling to use the present wheelchair, so until I am to purchase a bigger, more comfortable one I would like for her to get involved in some activities where possible in her room."

"Had to put our mum into care, but very reluctantly. Only managed to see her in a very brief visit but impressed with the staff and care. Mum won't be able to take part in the activities but if she remains peaceful I will be happy."

"My family and I are pleased with the care and attention my mother has received since moving into Barchester Corrina Lodge Care Home recently. The staff are so friendly and caring of all their residents and show much concern for family members at the difficult time of handing over care of a much-loved family member. Food, facilities and activities are amazing and the whole family enjoyed the recent teddy bears' picnic. A big thank you to every member of staff."

"I wish to give Corrina Lodge in Camberley a 5 star review purley on the dedication and compassion the staff played in the last 9 years of my mothers life ( Rosalind Moore ) All the nursing staff, the aids, caregivers and activities staff made my mother feel loved and so well cared for. My mother passed at 103 years and she had no family members left in the UK. To everyone at Corrina Lodge I owe a huge amount of gratitude for all the love and care you showed towards my mother. Thank you. Terry Moore."

"My mum stayed for ten days in June while myself and my husband were on holiday. This is the second time she has stayed, and she thoroughly enjoys her time at Corrina Lodge. She likes having the residents to talk to, and all the staff are so kind, helpful and professional. She feels totally safe when she is there. She has the newspaper every day and has her hair done - she says it is like home from home. The food is excellent, and she always tells everyone. I would recommend Corrina Lodge to anyone who has a much-loved relative that needs to stay. Thank you to all the staff."

"My mother has been at Corrina Lodge for one month and she has settled in really well, we are so happy that Mum has been given the opportunity to make this her home. The staff are amazing, so friendly and made the transition for our family as seamless and easy as possible. My mother is happy and is given as much attention or privacy as she wants. It is such a lovely feeling to know how much my mother is being cared for 24 hours a day. There are so many activities and events at the care home and it is totally the residents' choice whether they join in or not. Even activities that family members can join in too, like the toddler group, which my daughter took her children along to and it was great for everyone to enjoy time together. I am always kept informed about my mother, which is so kind and very helpful when this is all a new experience for us. Thank you so much to all the amazing team for your hard work and dedication."

"They dealt with my request to have my dad brought in for urgent respite care with dignity and respect. They made me feel (in a very emotional and fraught time) welcome and that Dad was welcome too. Dad has settled in well and is enjoying the excellent food served by inventive and well-balanced dishes. The nursing care is unbelievably wonderful with caring and kind staff at all levels. My dad is quite an introvert but he has become more involved in the activities provided by Corrina Lodge - but he loves the observatory where he can read and watch the birds in the garden in relative peace and quiet. All in all an excellently run care home with kind caring staff who always seem to be smiling. I'm very pleased that I managed to get my dad into Corrina Lodge."

"Our late father spent the last 12 months of his time with us at Corina Lodge following a deterioration in his health. The home provided him with a safe and comfortable environment and, most importantly, access to 24-hour nursing care. We were kept well-informed throughout by the home and as a family, we are immensely grateful for the first-class care he received."

"On the 8th of May, Corrina Lodge put on a Coronation BBQ for residents, relatives and friends. It was a super afternoon, well organised, well attended and a lovely atmosphere. Lots of delicious food was provided by the kitchen staff and the manager cooked at the barbecue. We had entertainment by a lady with a lovely voice and all the staff joined in and supported residents. Thank you."

"My auntie went to stay at Corrina Lodge for two weeks of respite care. She was treated extremely well, like part of an extended family. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. My auntie was treated with the utmost dignity and respect. The staff were always polite and cheerful and even knew each resident by name. The chef organised for us all to share a delicious three-course meal in the conservatory. We would recommend Corrina Lodge."

"When an elderly friend needed two weeks of respite care after an operation, Corrina Lodge was the perfect solution. Despite arrangements needing to be made at short notice, they were able to sort out accommodation very quickly and the transition from hospital to the home was done smoothly and efficiently. The room was lovely, with access to the garden and very nicely furnished. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. The manager, admin staff, and nursing staff were always welcoming, caring and quick to respond. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Corrina Lodge to anyone."

"My husband has been at Corrina Lodge Care Home for sixteen months. He requires nursing care and has always been treated with the utmost respect and dignity. The care is professional and consistent, with all aspects of medical requirements constantly monitored and updated. One of the comforting aspects is that care staff turnover is minimal, which is very important for the wellbeing of the patients. This home is a caring, efficient unit with management encouraging that standards are maintained."

"On arrival, greeted warmingly and invited to have a refreshment. My mother was comfortable sitting in her chair. All staff were friendly, kind and polite. The staff were attentive and communicative. Her room is comfortable with a door opening out into a garden. Food was varied and nutritious. Mum has been in Corrina Lodge for about 2 years. Since then I have made friends with several staff members. They all work very hard and do what they can to make my mother comfortable. The only downside is Mum's room is a little smelly, the carpet is due to be changed soon."

"I am very impressed with Corrina Lodge Care Home. You get a very warm welcome when you enter the home and there is a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The rooms are very cosy and have everything to make life comfortable. I visit a dear family friend who is very content and happy. The staff are very helpful and nothing is too much trouble. Entertainment is very good and varied to suit everyone. My friend tells me the meals are excellent and she enjoys her meals. I've visited many local care homes and Corrins Lodge is the best by far."

"When I first visited Corrina Lodge I was very warmly welcomed and shown where I could access coffee and cake. Having seen my stepmother, I also saw the lunch arrangements. Today, I was lucky enough to witness first-hand the afternoon activities involving music and quizzes. The organiser was bright and bubbly and involved all the residents, who obviously adored her. It was joyous seeing the resident's reactions and obvious appreciation. Although my stepmother did not engage at the end, the lady stoked her hand kindly. What a delight to see and of the care being offered."

"My daughter has been a resident of Barchester Corrina Lodge for ten years. As a family, we feel lucky that we found this home. Choosing a care home for a loved one is very daunting but we soon realised that Corrina is a family of staff who cares about their residents. They are treated with respect, dignity and humour. Many of the staff who greeted us then are still working at Corrina now which tells its own story. All the staff are friendly and approachable, they cheer me up, I can't fault them. Always there to help and assist, my daughter is well cared for and above all, she is happy. Should I need to speak to our manager, his door is always open."

Both my brother and myself are eternally grateful. I was always greeted with a welcoming smile and such lovely kindness from the reception staff, nursing and catering staff. You are what makes this place special. When my lovely mum passed away, the kindness and dignity provided was outstanding. Once again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts."

"Barchester Corrina Lodge Care Home gave my mum the most wonderful love and care in the last few months of her life. That care and thoughtfulness was also extended to us. Whenever we walked through the door we were greeted with smiles and warmth from every member of staff. I last visited my mum the day before she passed away. I had taken some red roses although I don't think she was aware at that point. Mum passed in the early hours of the next day. When my brother went to visit that afternoon to pay his respects Mum's body was peacefully laid out on her bed surrounded by the red roses and the funeral director said when they went to collect her she had a rose in her hand for the journey. A memory I will always have."

"On arrival at the home, I was warmly greeted by the general manager, who introduced me to other members of staff who were on hand. I was invited to have refreshments and sat with my mum in the bistro area. Throughout my stay, all the staff members were very friendly, polite and respectful. At lunchtime, I was invited to have lunch with my mum in the dining area. The food was delicious, and also offered wine. Everyone was so kind and helpful. I stayed till about 22.00 before leaving. My experience of this day was reassuring, knowing my mum was being treated with care and respect. I would like to commend the manager and all the staff. Thank you all for making my visit to see my mum a memorable and happy occasion."

"The staff at Corrina Lodge really do go the extra mile, I visit every day and have consistently witnessed members of staff show genuine compassion and professionalism towards residents. I have found the reception welcoming and covid protocols upheld which is reassuring. The carers and housekeeping are constantly milling around and will offer additional assistance should you require it. The nurses will always find the time to answer any questions I have. The manager is committed and knowledgeable and I have seen him come in even on his day off. The chef is very considerate and makes every effort to cater for mums particular needs and I appreciate this. My mum is happy at Corrina Lodge and I have peace of mind knowing she is in a safe and well managed environment. Thank you so much."

"The nursing staff are very caring and attentive and show compassion and also very mindful of my Mother's poor condition. More attention could be given to the cleanliness of the room and the bathroom, the toilet did not flush fully. My mother is not happy with her food. More thought could be given to fresh vegetables and the puddings are a little repetitive and boring, she does enjoy the soups. Bottom line a little more thought and care from the kitchen would make for a better experience all round."

"Our experience of Barchester Corrina Lodge Care Home are the caring staff and management team who are supportive and understanding. Our Mum has been a resident coming up to a year in May. She has been through several difficult times, nurses, always available to talk to and the care shown by individuals make a difference to our Mum and us. Activities encourage Mum to join in when she is up to it. Everyone tries to make a difference. Thank you to everyone."

"After frustration caused by Covid restrictions on visits, I have been pleased to stay for 3 weeks of respite, in order to spend more quality time with my wife at Corrina Lodge. There, I saw the empathy and support given by many nurses and carers. Sadly, whilst there I have heard of the death of my younger sister and I was touched by the personal concern staff showed me too. Sharing meals showed that my wife, even at 90, slowly feeds herself or has help from a kind carer. The food was great. Sitting in the garden we could hear laughter as the activities team cheered up those confined to their rooms. How pleasing to hear staff tell me how much they enjoy their work. They deserve a pay rise, I'm sure - as well as grateful appreciation from us all."

"As you would expect, some staff are there to do a job and earn a wage, but there are others who are clearly invested in the well being of the residents.

"My mother relocated to Corrina Lodge from another care home. She has been a resident for one month, and her personality and character is returning to becoming positive about her surroundings. This is the first time Mum says she is happy and likes being where she is. This is a true reflection and credit to all Corrina Lodge staff. A community and warm home where staff and residents are like a family. My mum has Parkinson's, and some days she is more anxious and down than others, but I am sure that with such dedicated and supportive staff, my mum will be cared for in a loving and kind way."

"My wife has been a resident at Corrina for the past 11-months, and I am really pleased with the quality of care she has received. For her first fortnight there, I stayed for two weeks respite to help her settle in. So my comments are based on first-hand knowledge. The care staff, kitchen staff, and particularly nursing staff are so much better than we saw in a previous care home. My highest praise is for the activities team. Last week my wife celebrated her 90th birthday, and as we visited her "in the pod", we saw how gently she was treated and with such understanding care. The previous manager encouraged staff to reach high standards, and the new manager is carrying on the good work. Staff show a personal interest in each resident, and the stability of staff gives continuity. I admire the way they have kept things going in the recent difficult Covid days. Families have also appreciated being kept informed, especially during these challenging times."

"My wife was at Corrina for nearly three years, and during this time we found the care to be excellent and the staff without exception to be kind, friendly and helpful. However sadly at the end of July 2020, we were told that her needs had increased to the point where we should move her to some other home that had a dementia unit. This we managed to do on 27th August 2020. One of the consequences of this move was that a four-figure refund was due to me. The paperwork for this was completed promptly and efficiently at Corrina but needed some sort of higher approval. Now, 56 days (8 weeks) after my wife's departure, this refund has still not been paid and I have not been contacted in any way. Why not, and what is going on at the administrative level."

"My 89-year-old mum moved into Corrina Lodge from another home in March, and we are so pleased with how she settled in. With the lockdown restrictions, we are only able to visit her once a week in the garden, but she is always happy and well cared for, she is so much more awake and alert than she was and the staff always go the extra mile and genuinely care for her. The communication from the manager and activities team has been great with photo's, regular emails and updates, which is such a comfort when we can't visit her in the home. A big thank you."

"Choosing a care home for a parent is never easy with so many available and all so very different. We looked at several homes in the area and Corrina Lodge was a unanimous first choice. Our initial visit to the home was everything we hoped it would be, the staff were all very friendly and welcoming. The home felt like a home rather than a hotel or a hospital which was really important to us as a family. We just felt Corrina Lodge was the right fit for Dad and his needs. As Dad wasn’t local they arranged to pick him up and bring him back which was a pressure taken off the families shoulders and nothing was too much trouble. I think the recent pandemic has really highlighted for us what a good decision we made in picking Corrina Lodge. We have a WhatsApp group, daily emails and recently socially distanced visits in the garden. The staff are always friendly and only too happy to answer any questions. Dad is happy and safe and well looked after, we couldn’t ask for more."

We were not happy with the level of care and support she was given there. Accordingly, it was a great relief to us to see the extent to which she improved once she came under the care of your nurses. What particularly impressed us was the extent to which your nurses and assistants took the trouble to talk to her in advance and explain to her what they were going to have to do with and for her before setting about their nursing tasks. The most important factor in her treatment at Corrina Lodge was the interest shown by a particular carer, in getting to know what type of person she was and what she had experienced during the course of her long and very different life. The result was that my mother-in-law became much more settled and accepting of the finality of her life. So would you please pass on our heartfelt thanks to all those members of staff who were involved in her care."

"This is a time that no one knows what is going to happen but I do know that my husband and all of the Residents in this nursing home are being looked after because they have the most professional staff ever. Their dedication, care and love for the Residents also for each other and the families is amazing. The activity team work continuously to entertain and they try so hard to keep everyone safe and happy. They go way beyond to make sure they have a good time. The nursing and care staff are unbelievable, their work is never ending but you never hear how tired they must feel. All of the staff work so efficiently to keep the home going, I cannot thank them all for keeping our loved ones safe. Continued health and care to them all."

"Respite care with nursing for my mother was excellent and communication with myself faultless. Empathic, caring staff. Corrina Lodge is small enough to make the home seem like family and large enough to provide the professional care to a high standard that was required for my Mum. At some future point, if required, Mum and I will happily choose Carrina Lodge again for respite care or permanent care."

"Since the Coronavirus pandemic started, Corrina Lodge has handled the situation extremely well. Although visits even from family are no longer allowed, the video calling system that has been set up enables family members to keep in touch with residents. I understand that the number of activities within the home has also increased, and my wife seems to be enjoying them. The manager's daily email updates on the situation are much appreciated, and the staff are doing a wonderful job despite the extra strain on them all. Deep thanks to all concerned."

"My husband died unexpectedly in August 2019 in Corrina Lodge, having lived there for 6 1/2 years since January 2013. He was cared for extremely well and members of staff became like a family to him and to me as his wife. He was encouraged to find his own 'niche' there, caring for the garden and greenhouse. He enjoyed most of the activities and certainly enjoyed mealtimes! He was supported in continuing his hobby budgie keeping and had three cages in his room. Overall he became content in his home at Corrina Lodge."

"We would like to say how amazing Corrina Lodge staff have been towards my father-in-law. He has been a resident for 15 months and prior to admission was given days to live. He has been given fantastic care and without exception, all the staff in the nursing home have contributed to his well being. He has Parkinson's disease and the most important part of his treatment is receiving his medication as prescribed on time. We joke now how we can set our watches by him receiving his medication and what a huge difference this has made to his condition. He has physically improved due to wonderful diet, all be it has to be liquidised and mentally stimulated by the team. Last week he was in the day room singing along to a ukelele band who came in to sing Christmas carols with the residents. We had not seen him this animated in years. I wish all nursing homes offered this level of care. Thank you to the manager, you have been instrumental in the management and care of all the residents."

"Nothing is too much trouble for any of the staff to make my friend comfortable. She is very well looked after. There is a happy and relaxed atmosphere and all the staff are accessible and willing to discuss and resolve any concerns or queries. The manager is always willing to listen and help and so are the nursing staff, carers, cleaners and admin staff. It is a very special place."

"I have found the staff easy to speak to, always willing to listen, to help and make my sister as comfortable as is possible. They work as a team, nothing is too much trouble for any of them. The manager's door is open to all issues and they are always resolved straight away. The friendly atmosphere, spotless cleanliness and genuine care for residents are exemplary, from senior staff to the cleaners - excellent."

"At Corrina Lodge, there is constant good care from friendly and helpful staff. However, for weeks and weeks, there has been disruption and occasional noise due to the refurbishment of several communal areas. Much of this has seemed to the casual observer completely unnecessary, for instance, in the conservatory which did not need new furniture, repainted walls and least of all new bookcases. How many thousands of pounds has all this cost and what is its impact on resident's fees? They need (and get) good care rather than luxury surroundings, especially the significant number who are bedbound and unable to enjoy the communal areas."

"I have returned for the third time - this care home excels my expectation each time I return this time it was much more noticeable- the general manager is amazing.

I would highly recommend Corrina Lodge."

"Hey all, I was lucky enough to go to Corina Lodge Care Home. I was very apprehensive about coming to ''A Nursing Home'', I needn't have. Everyone was super awesome. The care they gave was 1st class and the food was delicious. I thank the manager and his awesome team for looking after me so well. I'm hoping I may be able to come back for respite again. Thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart."

"The care given by the staff at Corrina Lodge, Camberley was beyond all expectation. Above all the kindness shown to my mother-in-law was exceptional, allowing her to have her beloved cat in the nursing home was of great joy to her. The staff, residents and the resident's families provided a huge network of support for us with the end of life care. There really are no words to express how grateful we were for the support, love and kindness we received."

"Caring is the first word I use to describe Corrina Lodge. I am deeply impressed by the warmth and dedication of the whole staff team: nursing and care, leadership, activities, administration, cooking, household and maintenance. The residents clearly valued the engaging activities (from films to bingo), the tranquil garden and sociable cafe. I would unreservedly recommend Corrina Lodge. The staff and residents here made this final stage in Mum's life one full of friendship and dignity."

"Absolutely amazing place, always go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and welcome. The amount of weight that has been lifted off my shoulders knowing my dad is safe because of these amazing people is unreal. Have also organised dad's 66th birthday in the beautiful lounge in the care home and they have organised it all. My only job was the invite. Amazing place, highly recommend."

"Since my Husband has been at Corrina he has improved his mobility and mental awareness. The staff are all so caring and never pass by without saying hello. The activity team are fantastic and offer a wide range of activities and will be open to suggestions. The carers are always happy to help you and the Manager has an open door policy and is happy to listen and act where necessary. Reception and finance are always friendly and helpful. Laundry, cleaners and maintenance are always on hand and do a great job. The lounge, dining room and cinema room are decorated in a modern and welcoming way. The bedrooms are not large and some need a bit of modernisation which I believe is being dealt with when able but are comfortable and adequate. My Husband is happy and content and I always enjoy my time visiting him and chatting with everyone. It is a home from home and cannot recommend it highly enough."

"Found all the staff very helpful and pleasant. I had a few problems with lack of grab rails, used to them at home. Good choice of menu and gained weight. Have a shower cubical at home that I find easier to use and had some difficulty turning the taps on. A good, varied selection of activities and discussions. Large print books would, I think, be helpful."

"My mother has dementia and was struggling with loneliness. We moved her to Corrina Lodge for a respite week which we are looking to extend. The staff could not have been more accommodating and friendly. It is clean and feels luxurious and the food is amazing. After a few days, I can already see a big difference in Mum, she is much happier, is getting involved in the activities as well as making new friends."

"My mother has been at Corrina Lodge for eighteen months and during that time has experienced the nursing care which has been excellent. As her condition has improved she is now living as a resident and quite independent in many ways although still needs help now and again. I would like to see separate activities and meals for those with all their mental faculties if that were at all possible."

"The activity staff at this care home are amazing. The key worker knows my father really well and makes a point of visiting him regularly and updating me whenever she sees me (he doesn't get out of bed). Staff on the front desk are always welcoming and helpful. Unfortunately, there have been lots of changes of manager, care staff and nurses - they don't always seem to stay for long. Staff would benefit from training in managing residents with dementia. AAlthough it is not a dementia care home some residents do develop this condition while there."

"The staff are without exception very friendly, polite and helpful and ready to enjoy a joke. This all contributes to the happy atmosphere at Corrina Lodge. It is hard to avoid the impression that many of them are overworked. Does this mean that Corrina is understaffed? Nevertheless, they remain very cheerful, sometimes the shouting of other residents can be irritating but I suppose that is inevitable in a place where some have severe dementia. The staff are from many different nationalities and cultures but seem to coordinate well and get on well with each other."

"The words care home/nursing home send a shiver down my spine, not a place I want to be in or have to put my loved ones in. So when the hospital told me they were transferring my husband into a nursing home I was horrified. I went to see three and chose the second one as when we walked in everybody we saw had a smile on their faces, all said good morning or hello, residents and staff alike. Since my husband has moved in my opinion has changed. The manager stops, listens and discusses all you want to talk about and then if needs be deals with it. The admin staff, nurses, carers are so kind, attentive and will go the extra mile to help you. The food is excellent and the domestic staff work so diligently and have your dignity in mind and wow, the maintenance man is brilliant. Perfect no, but I am so happy I chose the Carrina Lodge in Camberley."

"My father arrived at Corrina Lodge from hospital. He was instantly made to feel welcome by each and every member of staff. The difference in his health and wellbeing was apparent within days. He has resumed eating and is so much better. The staff have been so helpful and cannot do enough for you. It's like staying in a five-star hotel. My father has Parkinson's and it's essential he gets his medicine on time. This is now done religiously ( something that did not happen in hospital). Well done and keep up the excellent work."

"My husband is settled after over 5 years in this home. He has friends here and a good relationship with staff. Generally content. Hopefully, a change of manager after a succession of managers will lead to a settled period of time and fewer staff changes. My husband is unsettled when staff members leave the home if he has a good relationship. Numerous staff changes over the last 2 years has not been easy for him."

"The Manager and staff at Corrina Lodge, Camberley are all very pleasant, kind, helpful and overworked! The recent redecorations have caused much disruption, noise and inconvenience for both staff and residents. The redecoration workers were all courteous and apologetic for their unavoidable noise, unlike the external admin staff who invaded the lodge several times, commandeering communal space without explanation or apology. Neither staff nor residents had any opportunity for input into what needed doing. The changes imposed from above seem mainly aesthetic, with no improvements at all to the residents' rooms. Residents, relatives and even staff seem appalled at the extravagance of the redecorations. Ironically in the midst of all this financial waste, we received the unwelcome news of a 7% rise in fees. Very inept PR timing! Some changes are positively dysfunctional. The washbasin has been removed from the visitors coffee area, which is very inconvenient, and the replacement of the tatty old front doors has been thoroughly bungled. Over a fortnight after installation, they are still not working properly. Each is barely wide enough for a wheelchair to pass through. Sliding doors would have been much more sensible. The front doors were eventually fixed and now work automatically, with both opening so that they are OK for wheelchairs. The staff as always are very kind and helpful."

Staff really charming and helpful, you just have to ask.

"My brother was a resident at Corrina Lodge Care Home from January 2002, until his death in February 2017. During those 15 years, he was treated as a member of a loving family.

One could not wish for a more dignified and happy environment from Corrina Lodge."

We have some experience of other homes, some of which are national nursing homes and they do not come anywhere near Corrina Lodge, including the first nursing home which our son was in which was absolutely awful and we now believe has been closed."

"Our son is 49 years old. He was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis over 15 years ago. He requires full time residential care and was moved to Corrina Lodge over 4 years ago in 2012. He has been very well cared for physically, mentally and medically, but as is to be expected his condition has deteriorated. He can no longer use a self propelled wheelchair, has to be fed and helped to drink through a straw. He enjoys his food and a glass of wine at lunch and supper. He is content with his surroundings and appreciative of carers and medical staff who look after him so well and meet his needs. We are most pleased and grateful for the way he is looked after and for the friendly attitude of management and all the staff at Corrina Lodge."
