"My father has been a resident for the last year. The staff are warm and friendly and he loves it. He informed me he has never met an unkind member. Dad is of sound mind and would let me know if it wasn't so. They only failing is the food. It is a dreadful and lukewarm by the time it gets to his room. Same menu week on week and the chef needs to learn to cook fish and stew. I take meals to my father at times because I wouldn't eat it. With so many not being of sound mind could be the reason of few complaints. Food being taken to rooms is not hot and very dry."

"1 or 2 carers can now be off hand or abrupt. Most are very kind and caring. Nurses very good."

"My husband has been at Lakeside Care Home for 2.5years. We are very happy with the care he is receiving and he appears to be in better form this year than when he first arrived. This, I am sure is due to the excellent food and the kind care he is given."

"I have only been a resident for a short time. I am very happy in Lakeside, so lucky to have been taken into such a lovely home. Lakeside is full of wonderful caring people, from staff to management. Nothing is a problem. Stress-free and chilled-out. The grounds that surround Lakeside are amazing, as is the wildlife. Thank you."

"Overall I can say that I am satisfied with my mother's care however, I do feel that there is a shortage of staff as on several occasions my mother has had to wait 15 minutes to be taken to the bathroom and during this time lapse several accidents have occurred. The ensuite bathrooms are outdated and need to be modernised with walk in/wheelchair shower access as a necessity. Considering the amount that is charged per week, I would have expected the rooms to be more modern and well decorated and more staff on hand. But the staff are very helpful and the food and activities are very good."

"The premises are very well kept, with wonderful grounds. The staff on the Lavender ward where my father stayed are attentive and have the knowledge and understanding to deal with all their clients. The food served is of a very good standard. We enjoyed our family meal and was better than we expected. My father has now passed away, and the attention and care we were provided in his last hours were fantastic. The team treated my father and my family with dignity and kindness we could not have asked for more. Thank you and kind regards."

"We have found the staff at Lakeside to be very co-operative and available whenever you need to speak with them. Our aunt is very happy in their care and often says how kind the staff are to her. We are happy with the activities provided for her."

"Absolutely gorgeous food. Could not be more accommodating to our needs and although our father was unwell (UTI) we were all content during our special time together - Easter meal. Dad is much happier and the care he receives is second to none."

"My father was transferred to Lakeside after having been placed at a non-specific residential home, after a prolonged period in hospital, following a nasty and recurring UTI. It was found that although my dad had been diagnosed with vascular dementia, that he would require more specific care. The staff at Lakeside not only facilitated a smooth transition, they also reassured my family with their knowledge and understanding of the condition, and candid and honest duel working approach that fits with our family values."
