"Barchester South Chowdene Care Home has a warm friendly atmosphere which is so noticeable when you walk throughout the home. The home is very family orientated and it actually feels as though you are coming from home to home. The staff are amazing, friendly, kind, compassionate and most caring towards to the residents. The staff seem to be really dedicated to their jobs and care deeply for the residents. As this was noticed on many occasions when I visited my late father who passed away August 2017. My father seemed so content and seemed to settle in the home very quickly. My sister and I would ask him how happy he was and he said he was content. The hoe reminded me and my sister of a lovely country home as the gardens were beautifully kept and pristine, full of shrubs, trees and wonderfully designed. I think my father thought he was in his own back garden. We even saw two squirrels scurry across the lawns."

"From day one they couldn't do enough for my dad. We were glad he went in when he did, sitting with him when he told one of the girls he was scared and didn't want to die but he was 92 and died in there. The care was second to none in and out of his room all the time. Sometimes he was grumpy but they didn't mind at all. He was lucky and so were we. Anybody's family member would be lucky to be in there."

"My father was in South Chowdene after leaving hospital. He took ill while in there and unfortunately passed away but my sisters and myself were very very happy with his level of care before he passed away. Also, since he passed, we have been back and they were very welcoming to us."

"When we first viewed South Cowdene in May 29017 we were met by a lovely carer straight away and offered a tea, coffee. No waiting time to meet the Manager who took her time to show us around, which we greatly appreciated. Since my Mam moving here all staff are very very easy to approach on any matter. They can't do enough for you whatever you ask. If they can't help you with your enquiry they will find someone who can, even though they have the residents to look after. Nothing is too much trouble. All the staff here are very pleasant, helpful, lovely. I would definitely recommend South Chowdene Care Home. 1st Class. Thank you everyone."

"I find Chowdene nicely situated and a well cared for garden to sit in. Always nice and warm and spotlessly clean. Staff are very pleasant to residents and visitors."

"The staff are very friendly and always pass the time of day to anyone they come into contact with. The atmosphere is very welcoming. All residents are treated as individuals and the staff make themselves aware of each individual's needs both emotional and physically. The home now has a very enthusiastic events officer who is actively engaging residents to drive this forward. I know my mother feels very safe and secure and is made to feel part of the "family" which the home tries to engender."

"My sister has been in South Chowdene since June 2017. She has settled into a routine which meets all our expectation and we are delighted that she has found a haven of calm, comfort and safe living. The management and staff have provided her with caring support, without any fuss. They do everything you could wish for with good humour and thoughtfulness."

"I am absolutely very happy with all the love and care in which my mother-in-law is receiving at this wonderful care home. The staff are all very professional and caring in everything that they do. The cleanliness is 100% plus, the meals are very good. The home caters for all kinds of diets, you feel at home when you walk in. The staff are very friendly my mother-in-law is always very presentable and clean when I go to see her she has her hair done every week, which she looks lovely. They have lots of drinks and snacks, this care home deserves five stars. I am over the moon with everything that the management and staff do for her."

"My mum has been a resident at South Chowdene Care Home for the last two years and has significant care needs. In all that time I have always found the staff to be cheerful, patient and caring. Visitors are made welcome and I can go and see my mum whenever I want. It is a relief to know she is being properly cared for at all times."
