"This a purpose built care home with good, modern accommodation and facilities. Standards are high, provided by a hard working, willing and most of all , caring staff, who always seem to go about their work with a cheerful demeanor, interacting pleasantly with the residents. All this despite pressure on staffing levels."

"My mother is happy and safe. I'm concerned about the number of managers Kingsland has had since she became a resident, also the amount of agency staff. There seems to be a core of carers that understand how to address and care for people with dementia, others could do with some training."

"My husband has been here since April this year and both he and I have found everything about the home of the highest standard. All the staff and everyone connected to the home to be of a top standard."

"I very much appreciate the wonderful care and support given by the staff. There is always someone available to speak to me about my husbands care and well being. The home is always clean and welcoming and the food is very good. We were able to celebrate my husbands birthday there and the staff were so helpful in making this a happy occasion."

"Since the new manager has taken over the home it is so much better. The manager and her team really care about the residents and take the time to speak to relatives. My grandmother is happy and well cared for."

"Mum loves her room, staff and food! It is now almost a year since she moved in and continues to enjoy and benefit from living in Kingsland House. There have been staff changes over the last few months and new and old staff remain caring and ready to help where needed."

"Mum has been here for two weeks. She was made most welcome and well looked after. The food is good, staff excellent and mum is very happy."

"My Mum sadly passed away recently at Kingsland House after 4 happy years of living there. I cannot emphasise too much how grateful I am for the wonderful care she received. Her independence was always respected and yet she was always kept safe as she slowly needed more help. There were some management problems in that time but Mum was shielded from any problems by the caring staff. At the end of her life, the care for her comfort was at the forefront and I was supported throughout that sad time. I can only say that I highly recommend Kingsland as a caring home from home."

"Mum has been in Kingsland just over a week and she loves it. The accommodation is wonderful and the staff are great. I was amazed just how many activities are on offer each day. She has settled in really well and mu mind is at rest. I would recommend the home. Their caring ways are attentive to residents. I saw 10 homes and I picked the best. Most of all, mum is happy."

"We were extremely worried about my father going into a care home when my mother was unable to continue to look after my father at home. He settled in very quickly and has found the staff extremely helpful and caring. Thank you. We are finding the payments very expensive but believe them to be largely in line with other similar nursing homes."

"Lots of improvement in the past 6 months. You need to improve dentistry appointments."

"My father has been in Kingsland House for 6 months. He was welcomed by the staff who continue to look after his needs and encourage him to join in with the varied programme of activities which make his life more interesting and keep him in contact with the community. There is a calm and friendly atmosphere and I and his other visitors have been made welcome. There have been some teething troubles, but these have been dealt with head on and problems overcome. The staff are patient and treat the residents kindly and with respect, though it would sometimes appear that extra pairs of hands would help. The cleanliness of the home and quality and variety of food seem very adequate and the Christmas buffet and entertainment were particularly good."

"A place you can feel happy to have your loved ones to be in. It is very warm and friendly and the utmost care is given, nothing is too much trouble. Their concern is always to make sure the person is safe and happy."

"I was shocked to be told I was going to be sent to a care home, as I never felt I needed help. To me I was a person who coped well enough at home with some help from family and friends, from my church, a family Doctor, Nurses and friendly neighbours, but worse that i needed help mentally was unbelievable no not that."

"Kingsland House is a relatively modern purpose built care home. All on the ground floor so circulation for frail or wheelchair residents is easy. The home has gone through a difficult time with a number of short-term or temporary managers. This probably caused a serious drop in the care and service given to residents. However, for the past 9 months or so there has been a marked improvement in the quality of care in all aspects of care and support to the physical appearance of the premises. There are relatives meetings which give an opportunity to put forward any concerns or suggestions. The Home is clean, tidy and has plenty of stimulating aspects for residents. There are regular activities for those able to participate. The Home is surrounded by pleasant well-kept gardens. For ongoing success, it is important that there is continuity in management."

"Dad has been at Kingsland House for nearly 4 weeks. When he arrived, everything was well organised and ready for him. Without exception, every member of staff was warm and welcoming. Dad has settled in well, and is enjoying a high quality of care, excellent interactions with the staff, stimulating and fun activities and delicious food. The manager os excellent - a rare mixture of professionalism and warmth. Nothing is too much trouble."

"The nursing home has been open and honest with any problems it has faced with CQC reports. It has consistently improved its service working with relatives. Staff are patient and caring and all show warmth and compassion with my father. Since he has been a resident he is happier and content (since he lived alone). I am very satisfied with his care and think he is well looked after in both his physical and mental welfare."

"We visit a lot and are always made welcome. The new staff are perfect for the job. My friend has been in Kingsland home for 18 month now and we are really relieved at her social progress and happier self. She is happy and healthier and a bit heavier if we can say that and even we enjoy our meal times in with her when we can. We had a lovely day and brought more family to see the open day too. We hope when the new manager and team come in they stay on and stay. This home is the best there is and when my time comes I would be safe and happy here. We always recommended Kingsland and we know people are happy. The staff work wonders and thank you for all you have done."

"The moment you walk into the home you instantly feel happy and calm. You are greeted with a warm and friendly face, it really does feel like home. The residents are given constant care and a feeling of being safe. The rooms are warm, cosy and clean. The food is very good, the dining area is light and clean. So much thought and care goes into everything they do. The gardens are lovely. They could not do anymore, it's just so nice. I know it was the only place I would feel happy for my sister to be in."

"Being a purpose-built facility, Kingsland House has a very different atmosphere to the many care homes that are converted from large old houses. In many ways, it feels more like a hotel. Everywhere is light and airy, and the public areas are spacious. The building is well maintained, and the overall standard of cleanliness is good with there being little evidence of the smells that can be common in many care homes. The staff are friendly, and mostly seem to be employees rather than agency - familiar faces being important for people with memory problems. They always seem to have time for a chat with both residents and their families, despite having busy workloads. Although our relative doesn’t enjoy being in a care home, this is no reflection on Kingsland House. It gives us peace of mind knowing that she’s living somewhere where she’s safe and where she gets the care and support that she needs."

"Dad was very resistant to the idea of leaving his own home but has thoroughly enjoyed his stay so far. We have noticed how much brighter he is and how his mobility has improved. The staff are intuitive in their interactions with him and keep him cheerful and occupied. They are very welcoming and have been supportive to us all after the recent death of his wife and our mother. We can relax knowing that he is safe and happy."
