"My husband came to Barchester Overslade House Care Home for 6 weeks continuing healthcare assessment. He has only been here for one week and I am very impressed with how well they have got to know him in such a short space of time. I cannot praise the whole team enough for the excellent care being given and their approachability, kindness, friendship, compassion and empathy. I feel really welcome when I visit and I am certain that my husband is settling well and is in a very safe and stable environment and treated with dignity. Well done Barchester Overslade House Care Home, you are all awesome!"

"I cannot fault Barchester Overslade House. They score highly on all categories. The carers are genuinely caring and empathetic people, always friendly and open. The management are visible and open to talk. The environment is to a high standard with a lovely accessible garden and a visitors' lounge (with tea/coffee/water and cake!). Activities are regular and an effort is made duirng festivities such as Christmas. Thank you to all staff."

"My Mother was in Overslade Care Home from May 2017 until December 2017 when she passed away peacefully in the care of the wonderful staff at Overslade. As a nurse, I had many fears about placing my mother (also an ex-nurse) in a care home, but it was clear that she needed full nursing care. It was very reassuring to observe the care that the staff gave, any queries I had were answered immediately and cheerfully. Sometimes when I arrived to visit, there were staff caring for Mum and I could overhear them talking to her so kindly. She was always clean, a jug of water always in reach, a call bell at her side. I know that Mum would have told me in no uncertain terms if the staff weren't caring, but she always smiled and said they were lovely. I visited several times a week and I only ever observed kindliness. Thank you!"

"The care my brother in law receives from the Barchester Overslade House Care Home is good I cannot fault them. He is kept clean and always looks nice but they don't only care for him but they care for the families too. We feel like part of a family when we go to visit, nothing is too much trouble and we leave there with an easy mind. They all care about him so much and I think so much of all the staff. I would recommend Barchester Overslade House Care Home to anybody."

"My father was admitted during May 2017. The care my father receives was the best he could have ever had. His quality of life was so improved. All of the staff became not only his best friends, but also friends to all of the family. Overslade is a happy home, providing function days for residents and their family. I have seen other care homes within my location, Overslade, in my opinion, is the best in the area. Now my father has sadly passed away, the family will miss visiting, it was such a nice home."

"The home must be one of the best. My husband was losing blood in his catheter and went into the hospital for tests. The carer from the home who went with my husband could not have been better. He is now back at the home. His room overlooks a lovely garden with flowers and trees. The family could not be more pleased."

"My mother was admitted to Barchester Overslade House in June 2016 as a palliative care resident for possibly a few weeks or months. Her care and treatment by the nursing staff was excellent. The carers were always considerate and thoughtful and the support team made her time there as enjoyable as possible. Mum died in May 2017, exceeding the life expectancy originally diagnosed and I feel this was, on the whole, because she received such an excellent level of care and support. Mum died a few weeks ago but I feel that mum's last year was spent in comfortable surroundings, with dignity, constant care and she made many new friends. The support also extended to all her family - we were always made welcome."

"A close friend of long standing has been a resident of Barchester Overslade House Care Home for over a year and another close friend has just moved in. As an infrequent visitor, I have found the atmosphere to be warm and welcoming - together with professional and caring when dealing with the diverse needs of everyone. Having experienced many similar homes, I would have no hesitation in saying Barchester Overslade House Care Home is the best."

"Myself and my sister in law visited over a dozen nursing homes looking for a place for my husband who had Alzheimer's. As soon as we walked into Overslade House we both knew this was the place. All the staff were friendly and welcoming, the home was spotlessly clean and beautiful and suitably decorated for people with dementia. The meals were delicious and cooked fresh on the premises and nothing was too much trouble. The care he received, in the three months he was there, was wonderful. They were so caring and supportive, not only to both him and myself but to the family and friends who were there constantly in his final days."

"Overslade House was outstanding for the all to brief time our relative was staying there. Our experience could not have been any better. The care staff and nurses were all extremely kind, efficient, friendly, thoughtful and accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble for any of them. The manager and deputy manager's door was always open and they were extremely helpful and approachable, even before we had secured a room. The rooms, facilities, food and surroundings were all superb. First class in every aspect."

"Our mum stayed at the nursing home for several months and then was able to return to her bungalow. She was poorly and frightened on admission and soon settled in. The welcome she got was so warm. My sister, brother and I were always made to feel welcome too. We were all treated with respect and listened to if we had any questions. We were always greeted with smiles from staff. Mum was always treated with dignity. The home is a beautiful place with lovely furnishings. There is always a great variety of activities - the staff (from cleaners, cooks - to nurses and management) are fantastic."

"My mother has been a resident at Overslade House for 7 years. Recently, she celebrated her 90th birthday. Staff helped me to organise a tea party for her in the coffee lounge and the kitchen provided a buffet for the family attending. It was hassle free for me and everything worked like clockwork. The food was lovely. Recently, the manager asked if I would like my mother to move to a smaller more comfortable unit in the home. She thought it would suit my mother better. It has been a good move thanks to the care of the manager."

"We were all anxious and apprehensive about dad moving to a nursing home and truly feared that he would not settle. We could not have been more wrong; he is very happy and the staff have gone out of their way to help him feel valued. There have been hiccups but all have been resolved promptly and with good humour."

"Could not wish for any better place for my wife than this, if only it was 18 miles nearer to where I live. It would be even better ie South Leicester."

"My wife was resident from April 2015 until June 2016. During this time I can only describe things as good in all respects. Also during this time I myself had 2 weeks respite care following an operation."

"My mum was admitted the day before her 90th birthday in June this year, on palliative care, after spending nearly eight weeks in hospital. All the staff, without exception, were extremely caring and understanding, helping her to settle in as comfortably as possible. The chef even provided a beautiful birthday cake the next day for mum to share with her family and friends! Since then my mum has made such an improvement in herself and is able to be more independent again, with the genuine care and support of the staff at Overslade House. Above all, whatever upsets or concerns my mum has expressed the staff have dealt with them in a compassionate, respectful and thoughtful way - nothing seems to be too much trouble. They have a wonderful team at Overslade House and I feel very lucky to have my mum in such a caring environment at this time and I appreciate all the support my mum, myself and family all receive."

"My friend has been in since July 2015, since his admittance he has gone from pain and misery to content and care free. The staff management, cleaners, carers and entertainers are amazing. Always make visitors comfortable as well the residents. I can talk to anyone about his care or any worries. 100% recommend this home for all they do for everyone. The cafe is a god send for us relatives to. Amazing quality. Thank you everyone. xx"

"My mum and dad have been married 58 years and on their anniversary the staff at Overslade organised a surprise party including cake, flowers cards and food. What a wonderful caring loving care home. The staff and home are excellent, first rate. Dad is given lots of love, care and attention. Thank you so much."
