"I think the place is marvellous, pleasant and clean and the care is excellent. I, however, think there is room for improvement on activities."

"My wife has been in the home for many years. She has always been well cared for with dignity and love. Personal care and hygiene is excellent. There is never any smells in the home which says it all. Stable staff and a good team who all work well together. Lots of patience and understanding. They really care."

"My Aunt was a resident at this home since February 2017, the cost of £1400 pounds per week for her care was extremely high for the care given. My aunt was bed bound and on a feeding tube, she had dementia and could be aggressive. Her care was never fully correct causing the deterioration of her health with lots of further health problems. The staff require better training on dementia and how to properly look after patients in their care. When my aunt passed away we did not even receive a phone call to offer condolences or the offer of help when we went to collect her belongings. The least the staff and management could have done was send to a card of condolences. During my aunts time there, many concerns were raised but never properly dealt with and if they were dealt with they took a long time for answers."

"I am very happy with the care my husband is receiving on the memory lane unit. Staff are compassionate and caring."

carehome.co.uk rating: 3.92 out of 5

"My husband has dementia and he cannot walk. He has been at Paternoster for over 18 months. He is looked after very well, with kindness, dignity and his physical and medical needs are thoroughly provided for. The carers are always cheerful, friendly and professional. His bedroom and the living areas (lounge and dining room) are bright, clean, pleasant and well maintained. Because of all this, he settled in quickly and now seems content and happy most of the time. I visit frequently (roughly every other day for about 1 hour) and he greets me with pleasure, but is usually not at all anxious when I leave. I am very happy with my husband's care in Paternoster."

"The home has a very warm and welcoming atmosphere. All the staff throughout the organisation are friendly and caring. The residents are treated as individuals and the staff are fully aware of their preferences and their personalities and will always try to ensure that all their interactions with the individual take their preferences into account. The staff will always try to inject humour into the residents' days to make the residents' days more pleasant."

"My husband has been in the dementia unit for about 6 months. He settled in well thanks to the kindness and care of the staff and on most days he is contented and in a good frame of mind. (Though sometimes a bit sleepy) he particularly enjoys music therapy sessions which happen once or twice a month and he likes listening to a male singer and to be involved in ball therapy (which has happened once so far.) He also likes activities round a table (picture bingo etc) He is still rather resistant to some aspects of personal care but I think this is improving."
