"Mam came in 5 days before lockdown in March. I felt guilty and worried about her. The staff reassured me and put up with me keep phoning. Mam is doing great, she is well looked after, safe and even better now we can have regular visits."

N Wcarehome.co.uk rating: 5 out of 5

"My Mother-in-Law is happy and healthy and more importantly, content. All the staff I have come into contact with have been pleasant and efficient. My Mother-in-Law obviously likes the staff and trusts them. At 92 she looks healthier and content since taking up residence. I personally feel she is safe and well looked after. I am kept up to date on her welfare."

"Lovely care home run by excellent management and very caring, helpful and friendly staff. My mother has been in Springvale for about three years and apart from an odd query from myself, which was dealt with immediately, I have no qualms recommending this home to anyone. Thank you for all you do at Springvale Court."

Christine Wcarehome.co.uk rating: 4.25 out of 5

"So often we hear about the negatives of care, so I feel it is important to give praise and thanks which are undoubtedly due for the care my mother receives in Springvale Court. The staff remain excellent in my opinion, promoting choice and dignity. This has been a difficult year for everyone, so thank you one and all for your continued support and effort."

K Lcarehome.co.uk rating: 4.33 out of 5

"Visiting the new suite for visits under the Covid 19 rules. Staff explained before we entered the room. Mam was waiting and staff left us to talk which was great but only through the glass with a speaker. This was a wonderful visit after not seeing her for so long, only contact has been phone calls to Mam. I can only say well done to everyone for their care and attention to everyone. Looking forward to our next visit."

Margaret Dcarehome.co.uk rating: 4.75 out of 5

"I find all staff attentive, caring and pleasant."

D Hcarehome.co.uk rating: 5 out of 5

"My mother has been in Springvale Court for nearly four years. I looked at a lot of homes before deciding this care home was the best for my mum. It has a lovely feel about it, more like a hotel than a care home. The staff, on the whole, are helpful, caring, friendly and efficient. The management is helpful and understanding. Obviously, over the years, I have had one or two minor issues, but dealt with quickly and efficiently. Plus new coordinator who seems to have good ideas."

C Wcarehome.co.uk rating: 4.25 out of 5

"Fantastic staff in a very good home who looked after my mother's needs in a way that gives me peace of mind. Cannot fault the care provided or the home overall."

A Rcarehome.co.uk rating: 5 out of 5

"The care my mother-in-law receives from here is second to none, staff do an amazing job, especially under the trying times of Covid. They have kept families updated throughout and are always happy for you to ring and talk to your loved ones, the garden visits are a success with great social distance in place to protect the residents. Can not thank them enough for the care my mother-in-law receives."

Sharoncarehome.co.uk rating: 4.5 out of 5

"Mam had been in Springvale for two and a bit years, and prior to the coronavirus, I used to visit each day. The home has a pleasant, caring atmosphere, and is maintained to a high standard. The staff support residents to keep a high standard of personal care and attention to their appearance. The staff engage the residents in activities on a regular basis. Over the past weeks, the staff have kept me informed of how Mam is coping with the lockdown, and they support her to speak to me on the phone. I can only say that staff have gone above and beyond their role to keep the home safe. Well done."

M Dcarehome.co.uk rating: 4.64 out of 5

"I cannot thank the staff team at Springvale enough for their excellent support during this difficult period of the covid19 pandemic. They have continuously gone above and beyond supporting and keeping residents safe in this uncertain time. Communication has been excellent. I am wholly confident that my relative receives care that reflects the best dignity and respect. Thank you all!"

K Lcarehome.co.uk rating: 4.5 out of 5

J Lcarehome.co.uk rating: 4.58 out of 5

"I would highly recommend Springvale Court to anyone looking for their loved ones to be cared for. The management and staff have not only cared for and respected our father but also have been amazing towards us as a family. Nothing is a bother. The dedication and hard work the staff has shown my father has been unreal. Also, I must add this care home is immaculate. I will never be able to thank Springvale Court enough. The dedication of the full team has been outstanding."

Linda Fcarehome.co.uk rating: 5 out of 5

"My family and myself are very happy with Barchester at Springvale Wrekenton. All the staff are all very friendly, helpful and caring towards my Dad and us. It is always immaculately clean and smelling fresh. We can't thank all the management and staff for the fantastic care my Dad receives. I would highly recommend this care home."

D Wcarehome.co.uk rating: 5 out of 5

"My Dad has always received great care from all the staff. My Dad is always clean and tidy. My Dad always gives staff a big smile every time he sees all of them. They give him so much love and so does the management. I will recommend this home to others. Couldn't thank them all so much. My Dad is so happy here."

J Lcarehome.co.uk rating: 4.83 out of 5

"My grandad has always received great care from all staff at Springvale Court. Everyone has always been so friendly and caring towards my grandad. Staff, the care, management, cleanliness are 100% good and I will be recommending this to others."

Hannah Lcarehome.co.uk rating: 4.83 out of 5

"Early days as yet. Mam has only been a resident in this care home for 5 weeks. Food is significantly better than in her previous home. Care levels seem OK to date. Staff friendly and helpful. They don't seem to get adequate showers as I think that it should be once a week minimum (although I believe that they are regularly washed all over with a flannel)"

M Gcarehome.co.uk rating: 3.8 out of 5

We were extremely happy with the care and support he received whilst staying at this home. We could see how happy and content he was on every visit.

William Tcarehome.co.uk rating: 4.67 out of 5

"My mam has been at Springvale Court for 5 years. She is really well looked after, the staff are good with her because she can be a tyrant at times.

J Dcarehome.co.uk rating: 3.92 out of 5

The meals are great with lots of choice and cater for anyone with allergies, dislikes etc. Rooms are a nice size, with en-suite too. My father is happy and content living here which settles me so I am happy too."

C A Jcarehome.co.uk rating: 4.83 out of 5

Hazel Mcarehome.co.uk rating: 4.08 out of 5

"Good care, staff friendly and we are always made welcome. Staff should be trained more and understand about working with people with dementia."

J Ccarehome.co.uk rating: 4 out of 5

"Great service, however, should have tea and coffee service throughout the day. Also, should have tele on wall in the living area."

A Lcarehome.co.uk rating: 5 out of 5

Joy Lcarehome.co.uk rating: 4.33 out of 5

"My father has lived in the above care home for a number of years. I feel my father does get the care that he should. Dad is settled and content normally the staff are very nice. My father doesn't like his personal space invaded so difficult to change his clothes so this an issue which is being sorted. We now have a key worker who dad likes and is great with him to change, shave and is also bathing him."

C Jcarehome.co.uk rating: 4.67 out of 5

"Good care, staff are friendly and we are always made welcome."

P Bcarehome.co.uk rating: 4 out of 5

"So impressed with all needs cared for. Has a lovely, happy vibe and management and staff are great. From the initial visit, they were so welcoming and informative. All staff are so pleasant and nothing is too much bother for them. Have seen so much improvement in my brother since his arrival, he is well cared for and likes the staff and his very pleasant room and food. He gets involved with all activities and outings and enjoys them very much, he says they are so good to him. Couldn't be in a better place."

Eileen Mcarehome.co.uk rating: 4.92 out of 5

"Generally staff are lovely, however, they can be dismissive when suggestions around care are made. My grandmother is always well dressed and looks well cared for, however, it's evident, her hair isn't always brushed. Meal options are well amended to my nanas taste so she is never left hungry - cleaners could make more of an effort to have a 'general tidy round' of her room as mouldy fruit was found in the fruit bowl ready to eat.. loads of activities for my nan to get involved in."

S Fcarehome.co.uk rating: 4.33 out of 5

"Lovely care home, Mother and Auntie are well cared for. Lovely staff and management. My Mother is very happy."

Colin Hcarehome.co.uk rating: 4 out of 5
