"All staff very helpful and caring and nothing seems to be a problem."

"When walking up to the front entrance, I could see how well maintained the grounds and pathways were. I was greeted upon entering the main doors and made to feel very welcome with an offer of tea/coffee and some cake. Everywhere I looked was clean and well kept. I was shown all around and even saw some empty rooms. They have a wonderful menu and a lovely garden with plenty of wildlife to see. Everyone said good afternoon when I passed them, it is such a lovely, peaceful place, a real home from home."

"Mum has been in Shelburne Lodge for a year now. I am delighted to see how settled and happy she is. I am also very pleased with the wonderful care she receives from the team, providing Mum with a happy and supportive environment."

"When my husband was due to move from hospital, I was so worried as I'd visited many places not too good. Shelburne Lodge was a joy to me. So friendly, so caring and his room is so cosy with his own bathroom. My husband is very happy there, loves the food and the residents love him. Such a help to me at this sad and worrying time."

"What started as a journey of fear has turned into a time of thanksgiving and deep gratitude for the wonderful gift to a very sick man and his wife. Peace and kindness from every person working at Shelburne Lodge Care Home."

"My husband spent the last week of his life receiving 24 hour nursing care at Shelburne Lodge. All staff were very caring, but two team members deserve a particular mention: the deputy manager was wonderful - going well above and beyond. She was so compassionate and caring and treated my husband with the utmost dignity and respect. Nothing was ever too much trouble. She cared for our family as well as my husband and we will always remember her kindness. In addition, the maintenance manager was great. He was called upon several times to facilitate a change of room and adjustments to my husband’s bed. We found him to be friendly, efficient and very supportive. I would not hesitate to recommend Shelburne Lodge."

"The care given to my wife was in everyday words excellent. I feel that her last days were as comfortable a stay as the home could make it. I could not wish for better myself."

Frank C

"I have both nan's in 2 different care homes. This one is in a different league. My nan is very happy here and we are so pleased that we can see her care is 100%. The range of activities is amazing, keeping her busy and entertained. The choice of meals feels like she is at a hotel. Would recommend this care home to anybody."

"My father was admitted 11 months ago. We chose the Shelbourne Lodge following my mother-in-law's 18 month period here of which we were very satisfied and during which she was extremely happy. My father is well cared for and looked after. Although bedridden, he is very content and we, the family feel he is safe and well looked after."

"My mother was cared for at Shelburne after she was admitted into hospital with depression and malnutrition after the death of my father. I cannot fault the care she received at Shelburne which was compassionate and caring. She was treated with the utmost dignity at all times. We are grateful for the care she received."

"I have not found a sad person working here, all staff say hello and it is kept very clean and tidy. I have not eaten here but it looks good, always drink and cakes for guests. All rooms look like they have a view onto gardens. If I was taken ill, I would like to be there."

"On a visit, my daughter remarked 'it's like a hotel and she would love to end up here'. My resident mother, widowed since 1985, is the happiest I have ever seen her. The company of others has raised her spirits enormously. I can't recommend Shelburne Lodge enough."

"My mother in law moved to the home in December 2017. The service she received when she arrived was lovely. The staff are friendly and go out of there way to help you if you are not sure about something. The manager helped us very much in the run up to her moving in. Showing us the home and her room which was very clean and decorated beautifully. Mother in law can be very stubborn at times but the staff are very understanding. Well done all."

"My mother has not looked this well cared for in ages, very clean and even nail varnish on. At home, she had a carer visiting but not much time spent so very basic."

Hazel Mary B

"Us as a family have been very impressed with the care that our family member has received since moving in. All members of staff are friendly and approachable. Nothing has every been any trouble for them regarding care or advice/support for us or our family member. Thank you all very much. Keep up the good work."

"Generally good care, my one main criticism is people being left in bed when they want to get out, one excuse being the battery on the hoist is dead. This is unacceptable if it was needed in an emergency i.e. A fire."

"On the whole we are pleased and satisfied with the care our mum receives. Sometimes she is left in bed until mid-morning before getting washed. However, we appreciate there are many residents and emergencies can crop up."

"Found it very difficult to understand some of the staff's accents. (I do wear a hearing aid.) Sometimes I did have to wait a while after pressing the call button."

"We have been very fortunate to have been able to get Mum into Shelburne Lodge. The staff are very pleasant and welcoming. Mum has received wonderful care and personal attention. Food is excellent and nothing is too much trouble."

"All staff, nurses, etc in the day are most caring and helpful to my husband who is unable to get out of bed and do anything for himself. They are always there to help him and for our family. There have been just a couple of times when night staff have not been found and he did ask them to be more gentle with him, but I cannot fault the day staff at all."

Margaret G
carehome.co.uk rating: 4.55 out of 5

"I like it because it's friendly and I get on with everybody - I'm making good friends with residents and staff. The food is good and varied and you can always have something else if you don't want what's on the menu. The care I get is very good - my wife was in another home in Wycombe and it was awful, but Shelburn Lodge is very good and I am very happy to call it my home now."

"Mum has been here for a couple of months and I have found everything to be great so far. Clean, tidy and helpful staff. The only concern is that the front door never seems to be locked so anyone can walk in."

"My mother has only been at Shelburne Lodge for a couple of months - she is now more settled and has made a good friend. My experience is that most of the staff seem very friendly and caring. The food seems of good quality and there seems to be a good standard of cleanliness. There also are some good activities which she joins in with."

"My father is a resident here, and we as a family are thrilled with the level of care and support that he is receiving. He is cared for with dignity and respect and nothing is too much trouble for the staff. The rooms are homely and the food is excellent. Overall I wouldn't want my father to be anywhere else during the last few weeks/months."
