"The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has proved to be a very difficult time for us and especially management and all staff in the care homes. I think that the month of May being that the residents were tested for the first time must have been a very difficult time for all and I found that the carers were so helpful when they must have been inundated with lots of calls from relatives at such a busy time. I am very grateful to them. I also speak for all my family as well."

"Our mum has resided at the Court for eight months. We are very pleased with the care our mum receives. The staff are friendly and informative and especially during this lockdown time, have been extremely helpful in making sure we are kept up to date with Mum's everyday care. Any queries we have are dealt with quickly and competently. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sherwood Court to anyone that asks."

"My husband was in the nursing home 10 months. I found it a very friendly homely place and I had peace of mind him being there as I knew he was being well looked after, which means everything. All staff kind, caring and supportive. The food was excellent. My husband passed away last week and they were wonderful to us all. I will miss them."

"After a decline in Mum's health following an infection, Mum was admitted for respite care at another nursing home. The care she received there was absolutely atrocious and in a matter of hours Mum was rushed to hospital to be stabilised, where it was decided full-time nursing care was necessary. Sherwood Court restored my faith in the care service again. Mum has been treated with the utmost respect and dignity, which is second to none."

"My mother was very quickly and comfortably settled in from the day she was brought from hospital. She received the best possible nursing and palliative care and we couldn't find a better place. All staff are wonderful and the home is kept clean and pleasant. Would recommend for anyone wanting the best care for their loved ones."

"My daughter and I were very pleased with the general standard of care. The staff were caring and helpful. My wife needed full nursing care so was unable to take advantage of the activities but they seemed to be varied and interesting. The room was light and well maintained and the food was good with varied menus. The home, in general, was well run and I would recommend to anyone."

"My mother has been a resident at Sherwood Court for 2 and a half years. During that time, she has received excellent care and been very well looked after. Changes in her care needs have been discussed with us as a family and her needs have always been put first. The staff are very caring and extremely hard working."

"Lovely home, lovely staff. Good food. Staff seem to be stretched and can't do anything. When they sort this the home would be amazing for the residents first and foremost, but also for the staff. The care is very good and they try their best for every resident. Thank you to Sherwood Court care team! You do a great job!"

"My two grandmothers and my Mother have been residents at Sherwood. I have seen my Mother being cared for by loving friendly and considerate staff. There is always a wonderful welcome and full update on my Mothers condition and wellbeing."

"Recently an Operational Manager was appointed to implement and oversee necessary improvements and the consequent quality of care that was required in the home, and as a result, there have been significant changes at Sherwood Court. Accountability has improved and new systems are in place and are adhered to by staff which are greatly improving the care given to residents. Relatives of residents are able to voice opinions, both positive and negative and monthly meetings are held where discussion between relatives and management is encouraged. I am certainly happier with the home than I was several months ago and am looking forward to further stability in the quality and consistency of care delivered to residents when the new manager takes up post. There is still significant improvement needed in the area of activities for residents."

"I visited Sherwood Court today and was astonished at the vast remarkable improvements. I last visited the home 7 months ago and had concerns about the environment and cleanliness. I can only say WOW! what a difference they have made. the home is clean, tidy, smells fresh and is definitely inviting. The staff were laughing and jolly, which is fantastic to see. I was greeted by reception and the manager on entry to the home. They even offered me fresh coffee!"

"Everything is excellent now at the home. My wife is happy and so am I. The operations manager overseeing the home recently is lovely and she has worked wonders. Staff morale is great and it's nice to see them laugh."

"My gran has been in Sherwood Court for 18 months and there has been a massive improvement in the last 3 months throughout the home with new management. Very happy."

"Dad was on the nursing floor since June 2017, however, stimulation upstairs was lacking, so we were advised to move dad to dementia floor where he has settled in very well. Staff are all on the ball for his needs. He dances without encouragement if the music is playing. He seems so much happier."

"My wife went into care 01/01/16 - I cannot fault the staff with the care provided in any way. See the tick boxes, I am very happy with the work and provision of the care home."

Alex Scarehome.co.uk rating: 4.42 out of 5

"In my opinion the current staffing levels (1 nurse and 2 care assistants to 10 patients) is too low to provide the care I expect. She has dementia and does not receive adequate stimulation and attention. The staff try to care as much as possible, but staffing levels do not allow them to spend as much time with them as we would like and the patient's need."

"Lovely place, caring staff, clean rooms, excellent food choices and meals. Very helpful, could do with more activities, things to do."

"I cannot praise the Sherwood Court Nursing home highly enough. My dad had terminal cancer and was with them for three weeks until he passed away there. In that time he was happy and made comfortable, the staff were incredible and could not have done more for him. The facilities and cleanliness were great and he was treated with dignity and kindness while also having a laugh and joke with the staff which made him feel more like an individual. The overall treatment he and my family received made a very painful time much easier to cope with."

"My wife was admitted from the hospital for palliative care. She was only in the home for two weeks before passing away. The family and i were impressed by the wonderful care and attention she was given."
