"The care home is lovely, however there is a constant change of nurses."

"All of the staff at Newington Court have been friendly, helpful and supportive to my father and all of his visitors every time we have visited (ie every day). This has been true of cleaners, nurses, administrators, all the way through the organisation. They have always met the challenges of their roles with a smile, a good heart and a caring, professional attitude. I don't think we could have asked for better."

"My dad was admitted to Newington Court swiftly and was warmly welcomed. He has now been there for two weeks and has settled in very well indeed. The staff are lovely to him and also to my mother and I when we visit. The food is excellent and the "Memory Lane" environment seems therapeutic to all the patients. The staff are well-informed about dad's condition and very helpful about providing information to the family. I am very impressed with the standards maintained there."

"All staff at Newington Court are friendly, kind and considerate, not just to the residents but to family members too. The nurses are all helpful and very professional. Since Mum has been in here she has been looked after with great care and consideration. The atmosphere in the home is lovely. My only concern is the lack of staff on the second floor. Particularly during the afternoon. Most residents on this floor need hoisting. If several buzzers are pressed at once it is very difficult for the staff and also unfair to both residents and staff."

"Caring & accommodating."

"Mum had been in a care home in South London, which whilst charging 50% more than Newington Court, was the polar opposite to their attitude to residents. We cannot praise the staff enough, who in our opinion looked after our mother almost like she was their own. Please pass on our immense gratitude to them for making the last few months of our Mum’s life more bearable."

"We are very happy with the care my mum receives. She is always well presented and appears to be very happy and settled. If we have any questions they are usually answered satisfactorily."

"Mum loves living at Newington Court. Everyone is friendly and helpful. Food is good."

"Staff friendly and very caring. All aspects of care taken into consideration - health and mental well-being and social needs. My relative became a resident in March 2017 and at this point, could not walk, had lost weight and incontinent. Now 4 months later, the care home has facilitated walking, weight is now normal and toilet needs are reasonably independent. The turn around in the resident's health and well-being has been a marvel and due to the care undertaken at this care home."

"I feel that Falcon Place needs to install the Internet and another phone line as this is invaluable when continuity of care is so important for the residents."

Sandra B
carehome.co.uk rating: 4.45 out of 5

"The care home generally look after Mum's personal hygiene, food, medication needs very well. I find it disappointing that there is no internet or direct phone as with dementia I would find it very helpful to keep Mum visually in touch with her extended family. Care can vary from person (carer) to carer. Generally, Mum is settled and very happy could do with more organised activities."

"Mum was very agitated when she first arrived, her tablets were reviewed by the doctor with help from the carer and the situation improved. After Mum had an operation for breast cancer, the carer arranged a district nurse to change the dressing when the breast care nurses were unavailable. Also very caring when her appetite diminished trying to find things to tempt her. Another review of tablets then occurred when she was having trouble swallowing her tablets. She is now much more relaxed and happy within herself and I am able to take her out more. Each time we return she is always greeted with smiles and kind words which make such a difference. Carers could not be kinder."

"I'm very happy with the care given to Mum. The staff are good with mum and keep us informed about any problems. I would hope that if I ever needed to live in a home, it would be as this home is."

carehome.co.uk rating: 3.83 out of 5

"I have always found the regular staff to be very welcoming to residents and families in a very caring and professional manner. Although at times things are stressful the staff deal with matters promptly and discreetly. We are kept informed of any problems and our views are always considered. When looking for homes for Mum, this was by far one of the best. 'A home from home'."

"All the staff at Newington Court are excellent, the nurses and care staff treat residents with dignity, respect, great care and kindness. They all work exceptionally hard. The general atmosphere as you walk into Newington Court is lovely, whoever you meet at reception, in the corridors and especially on the nursing floor are friendly and welcoming, this really helps visitors feel welcome and at ease. No one wants to put their loved one into a nursing home, the guilt, when visiting and leaving, is awful, so to know that lovely people are doing the caring makes a huge difference. On the nursing care floor, there is sometimes a concern that staffing levels are too low for the amount of residents with special needs i.e. hoist required for transfers to the toilet, chair, bed etc."

"I visited today Newington Court and was very happy with the care and support I saw. I have not visited many care homes but this feels more like a hotel than a care home. The food that was being served looked great and I loved the fact that residents were having a glass of wine."

"My grandmother was looked after in the last few weeks of life with exemplary care. All staff are kind, considerate and go above and beyond for all residents. The home has a lovely, happy atmosphere. Nothing is too much for the staff."

"Ever since my dad has been in this home, he has improved greatly. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff, they are very helpful, even towards visitors. 100% perfect."

"My mum came to this home in October 2016. Since my mum has been here all the staff who have treated my mum are lovely, they have helped get her settled. All the carers and nurses on floor one are very caring with my mum's needs. All the nurses are outstanding."

"Dad spent the last six months of his life in the care of Newington Court. At all times family members were welcomed with Mum visiting Dad daily. Newington Court provided a homely environment for Dad with kind and patient nurses and care workers looking after him when he was at his most vulnerable. The staff extended their kindness to Mum during her daily visits which was greatly appreciated as she has dementia too. We feel fortunate to have found such a high standard of care with a homely environment on our doorstep."

"Mum was only at Newington Court for 2 weeks. However she was quickly treated as "one of the family". Her death was handled with caring and dignity. We, the family, were always warmly welcomed, it was a comfort to know she was being so well looked after."
