"From March it has not been possible to visit. From mid-June, it has been possible to visit for half an hour a week but due to covid distancing, it has been difficult to communicate with my wife as she has dementia and it is difficult to estimate if she realises who I am. Previously when I visited it was easier to communicate with her. I am very satisfied with her care as I know it can be difficult to care for her."
A Ucarehome.co.uk rating: 4.17 out of 5
"It's a difficult time due to the pandemic. Weekly update letters/email from the head office are informative and reassuring. All the staff continue to care and look after our loved ones; they are amazing! My mum seems to be happy in Hyacinth House and its lovely to be able to see her in the garden now."

D Acarehome.co.uk rating: 4 out of 5
"My mother was admitted to Hyacinth House as an emergency in November 2019 following a fall and fracture. This has given me great peace of mind as I can see how well looked after she is and how happy she is. As a nurse myself good care, high-quality food and friendly approachable staff are important to me. I can truly say that she is well cared for and very happy."
Caroline Bcarehome.co.uk rating: 4.17 out of 5
"I am extremely happy with the care Mum receives at Hyacinth House. Mum loves being there and enjoys the plentiful food, activities, and signing with other residents. The staff has been very understanding and supportive when we could not visit Mum as often due to my husband being unwell. Thank you to all the staff who welcome us and care for Mum."
Kay Scarehome.co.uk rating: 5 out of 5
"My mum had to be admitted into the care home following several falls, the last one resulted in a hip fracture. The home welcomed her with open arms and she settled into the home within a few weeks. For me, as a nurse, it was important that I felt listened to as I know the things that were important to her in her life. These are respected by the staff who actively encourage her to socialise and take part in the activities within the home."
Caroline Bcarehome.co.uk rating: 4.17 out of 5
"I came in for respite care but am not progressing as well as I had hoped. However, I couldn't wish for a better experience or happier home. All the staff are caring and helpful, helping me to settle in quickly and feel at home."
S Rcarehome.co.uk rating: 4.08 out of 5
"Our father lived at The Wimborne for 18 months and our experience was that the staff go out of their way to know their residents and make them feel at home. We have nothing but praise and thanks for the way in which he was cared for. The décor of the rooms may be a little tired but the care and the general bright and happy atmosphere completely outweigh this."
Tracey Lcarehome.co.uk rating: 4.25 out of 5
"The care my dad received during his stay was excellent. The staff were lovely. Very friendly and helpful."
Caraline Dcarehome.co.uk rating: 4.92 out of 5
"We have searched high and low for a residential care home for my wife's aunt, for whom we have power of attorney, that meets her needs and provides her with a comfortable and stimulating environment where she can be happy. We do feel The Wimborne Care Home is the right place for her. The staff ratios are very good, and yesterday we met the current manager who gives us confidence in the home and the way it is run."
Chris Hcarehome.co.uk rating: 5 out of 5
"Very welcoming, caring and helpful staff. The home is a perfect size to create a homely atmosphere which it has successfully achieved."

"Since I arrived 3 months ago, the staff have been supportive and kind as I have settled into my new residence. It's not easy to leave your home of many years and they have made the transition as easy as possible for me."
Pat Pcarehome.co.uk rating: 3.7 out of 5
"My mum recently came to The Wimborne for respite care as an emergency, however, it was a blessing in disguise. All the staff have been fantastic in making her welcome, helping her settle in difficult circumstances and caring for her superbly. That has made it a very easy decision for mum to move here full time. It's peace of mind for us as her family to know she is happy and well cared for 24 hours a day."
Sam Hcarehome.co.uk rating: 5 out of 5
"I have been very happy with the home, they looked after my husband very well. The staff were very nice and friendly. The home is clean."
Gloria Ccarehome.co.uk rating: 4 out of 5
"Our Mum was admitted as a matter of emergency but what a gift from the gods this turned out to be! We are so happy that Mum is able to make this her permanent home. The staff are all amazing, their patience, care, hard work and dedication (not to mention a very necessary sense of humour!) has been excellent and has never flagged under some very difficult circumstances. Thanks to their expertise, kindness and endless patience Mum is flourishing again! I cannot recommend them highly enough, and thank them from the bottom of my heart for everything they do."
