"All the staff at Lawton Rise Care Home are unfailingly welcoming, smiling and cheerful. If a problem does arise it is immediately listened to and addressed at the time, if possible, or referred to the appropriate person. The earlier general refurbishment has made all the difference to the more homely feel and standard of surroundings. We look forward to the continuation of the plan. There are times when unfamiliar staff assigned to the unit is unsettling for the residents."

"From day one, up to the present time. I could not have wished for a more professional, extremely caring and welcoming care home for my beloved wife to be a resident in. Her care has been first-rate and the staff have always been both gracious to me and to my wife. I cannot thank them enough."

"Staff approachable - staff dressed smartly, always have the time to speak to relatives. Good variety of food for residents. Bedroom is bright and airy. Staff offer good interaction with residents on social afternoons outside. Suncream and cool drinks in good supply. Thank you."

"My mum came here on an assessment bed from a hospital 20 miles away due to her worsening dementia and increase in hospital admissions due to falls. I was so worried that she wasn't on the doorstep but soon realised after conversations with the home manager, who put me at ease and showed great empathy for my situation, that she would, at last, be safe for a while. My darling mum has now been in the home for 6 weeks and is a different person. I will be forever grateful to the whole team at Lawton Rise for their dedicated and compassionate work helping my mum and the other lovely people living their lives with dementia. An incredible place which I couldn't have wished harder to exist! Thank you from the bottom of mine, my families but most importantly, my mum's heart."

"We have been delighted with how well dad has been cared for by all the staff at Lawton Rise. The change in him is remarkable; he is happy and smiling. The staff have been kind and caring and very responsive to dad's needs. They make him smile and have a joke with him which is lovely to see. Dad struggles to communicate with his dementia and the staff take time to help him. The home is bright, clean and has a lovely vibe. The residents are encouraged to join in a range of activities and there are loads of different things happening every week. I can wholeheartedly say this care home is exceptional."

"Lawton Rise is a fabulous care home the staff go beyond what is expected of them. My mum has been in now for 18 months she has dementia she is well cared for happy safe. She has a lovely room with wet room and toilet. Over the past awful 9 months with COVID, it has been extremely difficult for all of us. The staff have kept us well informed with video calls phone calls to let us know Mum is ok. Mum found it really hard not understanding why I can not go in and see her normal with kiss and cuddle. The staff have made an extremely difficult situation bearable nothing too much trouble for any of them doing afternoon teas entertainment they had a lovely Christmas. We now have a pod for visits which make it a lot better Mum is more content now when I visit. I would definitely recommend Lawton Rise as a very well run home homely well-trained staff excellent variety of menus food fresh well cooked."

"My grandfather has been a resident at Lawton Rise for a number of years. During my time visiting him, I have seen four changes in management and I must say that the current management team is the most approachable and most willing to listen to any concerns. They will usually respond to any concerns that I have, regardless of how minor they are. My grandfather has always been clean, well cared for and always appears happy. He has told me he likes the food and will eat every bite of his meals. The home let me know what is happening and keep me up to date with any incidents or changes to his care. I cant praise the staff enough - they are always friendly and welcoming. I enjoy talking with the staff nearly as much as talking to my grandfather."

"As the grandson of one of the residents in this home, I would like to say I have found not one fault with this home, the management or the care teams. During such a difficult time for all of us, this care home has kept my family and myself in the know with everything regarding my Grandad. We have been happy knowing he is safe, well and looked after. The last few months have not been easy for ourselves, for the staff or the residents and we had no doubt they were doing everything in their power to keep everyone’s loved ones safe. It gave us great peace of mind knowing he was in the right place. Thank you Lawton Rise."

"The care the Lawton Rise carers give my father-in-law is outstanding, each and every day he is looked after 100%. He knows each and every carer's name. From the management, nurses, senior carers, night staff, the care to me is excellent. As long as my father-in-law is happy that's all that matters to me and my family. A massive thank you to all the Lawton Rise staff. Well done."

"My experience with Lawton Rise Care Home is second to none. My father is well cared for with dignity and respect. The management and staff are very supportive and go above and beyond to help. Nothing is too much trouble and my father seems very happy. I would like to say thank you for your selflessness during this Covid-19 Pandemic."

"I have not been happy at all with the care provided by Lawton Rise Care Home. I have found that the staff is not trained to the level they should be, unable to do basic procedures. I would not recommend anyone to send a relative here unless major improvements were implemented within the setting regarding training and having fully trained staff in charge at all times. During the time my mother has been in Lawton Rise there has been a Covid pandemic creating difficult times but common sense decisions have not been made which have alarmed me. It has been a stressful time and this hasn't been helped by the lack of common sense shown at times by untrained senior staff. I have been very disappointed at times during the few weeks my mother has been there."

"My Uncle has been a resident here for nearly one year now. The Lawton Rise team are angels! They always go above and beyond to keep all the residents safe and happy. The management is approachable, kind, and always has time to answer questions. Their attitude is reflected in the rest of the team's approach. Even though such tough times, they have been kind and calm and put a smile on my face whenever I have called. Thank you!"

"My father has been a resident at Lawton Rise Vare Home for the past two years and I have to say, he's very happy there. The decor in some areas of the home does need updating and I believe that this will be happening in the near future, however, it is very clean. The management work very well together and are very approachable, any concerns are dealt with as soon as possible. The entertainments programme is very good, there is a good mixture of activities, entertainers and events and everyone is encouraged to join in. The standard of care is very good, the staff seem very happy in their work and are very friendly, caring and helpful, not only with the residents but with relatives alike. I feel that the people I have met at Lawton Rise have become part of my extended family and I would definitely recommend it."

"I was really beginning to despair that I had chosen the wrong home for my husband but after changes at the home in the last 2 weeks, I now know my husband is in the correct place for his needs. The difference at the home in the past 2 weeks is remarkable. It's now a very happy place for everyone, residents, relatives and most importantly, the staff. All my review markings refer to the home "now", not as it was 2 weeks ago."

"When we have visited mum is clean and well cared for. The staff have formed good relationships with her. She is non-verbal but the staff interpret mum's non-verbal communications well and she appears settled. The staff make great efforts to ensure mum's safety. They manager her diabetes well and they appear to have halted the recurrent U.T.I's she suffered previously."

"I would not hesitate in recommending Lawton Rise Nursing Home for anyone suffering from dementia. My uncle had dementia but was otherwise quite healthy. There was always a lot of staff and nurses available and his every need was taken care of, nothing being too much trouble. There was always daily entertainment and activities provided which the staff encourage all the residents to attend. I would like to thank everyone concerned for their help whilst my uncle resided at Lawton Rise, they all do a great job!"

"Since my wife arrived at Lawton Rise she has been very well looked after. The standard of care has been excellent and the staff have been outstanding in their care for my wife and us as a family. The room has been of a high standard for cleanliness. My wife has been well fed and drinks have been freely available to us all. My wife has received a high standard of medical care with prompt visits to the doctors and hospital. The gardens were a great help in the hot summer days being safe and secure. In conclusion, Lawton Rise as a home is outstanding."

"I feel that all of the staff have got my father's interest at the front of their list at all times. They have always made me aware of any issues with his care at the earliest opportunity. The care taken to help in his day to day living is second to none if it's persuading him to eat or taking his medication. They take the time to treat him like a human being and not a number. In many respects, I feel they treat him like one of their own relatives."
