"We are most grateful for the kindness, care and support my mother received from Thackery team. It was very reassuring for us that our mother's wellbeing was treated with such care and devotion in her final days."

"The carers are not enough, as I think."
S Icarehome.co.uk rating: 3.82 out of 5
"The home is well run and someone is always available to answer any questions/requests etc. The dining room is delightful and also the sitting/TV room. My husband was respite care. He can stand on a 750 return stand but this was not available, so a hoist was required. Nurses were willing to wheel him (own wheelchair) into a well-maintained garden. Food was good."
C Hcarehome.co.uk rating: 4.25 out of 5
"My wife has respite care about six times a year. All of the staff from the manager, nursing and auxiliary staff have always been excellent. When I collect my wife, she is always happy as she is when she goes into the home. Thackery House is very clean with no odours present. There is a relaxing "home" feel. All in all, an excellent nursing home."

"I am very pleased and have been impressed with the care staff especially that of the manager and chef who have shown great consideration to my mother and myself as visitors to the centre. All the staff are so warm and friendly and always willing to help. Well done to all concerned. All the glory to God in Jesus name, Amen."

"My mother had a wonderful Christmas week at Thackeray House in Croydon, where she was booked in for respite care and nursing staff were wonderful and the food was marvellous. The location right next to the tram was ideal for my mother in her wheelchair. Activities were well planned and suited to all residents needs. We shall definitely return. It was a great experience."

"My brother is disabled, being riddled with arthritis and suffers from prostate and his eyesight has also deteriorated from Glaucoma. He needs frequent care and attention as he can't walk not use his limbs properly. Staff and management deserve great credit for their patience and understanding for which acts I am greatly appreciative. He looks much better now than when he came into Thackeray House in 2015. I am very glad I brought him to this great place."

"My father was a resident in Thackeray House from October 2014 up to his death at the end of February 2016. Although I reside in Australia my brother and sister-in-law reside in Croydon and kept me in touch with his care over this time. I visited my father for 2 weeks in October 2015 and spent the last 2 weeks of his life with him in February 2016. At all times the staff and management were kind and helpful and obviously cared about my fathers comfort, both physical and mental. They were extremely caring to myself during a very difficult period."
Eleanor Hcarehome.co.uk rating: 4.17 out of 5
"Good atmosphere, open to discussion regarding treatment. Friendly and highly experienced in addressing changing needs of the resident. Strong management and a real caring attitude by all the staff."
Richard Ccarehome.co.uk rating: 4 out of 5
"Very comfortable and pleasant surroundings. Staff are very friendly and helpful though the night staff on my last two nights were not very pleasant or helpful. Food very interesting and imaginative and tasty. Disappointed that I could not have a bath because the hoist was unable to support me, surely I'm not the only one with a big rear end! Usually wait to go on the toilet because they had to fetch their only hoist and commode, usually on another floor. Generally a very pleasant two-week stay."
Jane Scarehome.co.uk rating: 4.33 out of 5
"I experienced all of the staff to be very caring towards not only the residents but the relatives and friends. The staff seem to work well as a team. I have visited every day for the last two months since my mother has been admitted and the older people look happy, what a lovely care home I would certainly feel happy if she returned. Thank you."
L Gcarehome.co.uk rating: 4.33 out of 5
"I've been a service provider at this home for five years and have always had a great experience. Staff are friendly and supportive. The chef is absolutely amazing, his cakes and biscuits are legendary! Residents seem well looked after. Please keep up the good work!"
Kapesh Mcarehome.co.uk rating: 5 out of 5
"I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to every single member of staff at Thackeray house for consistent excellent care of my mother who has been there since May 2011. I live and work in Mallorca and I contact my mother every day and visit on a regular basis. I am therefore quite aware of my mothers demeanour of which can be very trying sometimes, she is 95 years and completely bedridden. I am extremely happy with the very high and consistent standard of care given to her 24 hours a day 7 days a week . I cannot fault the care at all. It has taken a lot of worry for myself about my mothers care and well being out of the equation so as said before a very big thank you to all staff is very well deserved."
Margaret Bcarehome.co.uk rating: 4.92 out of 5
"My brother -in-law was shown compassion and dignity at the end of his life and the rest of the family were giving the same amount of compassion and support right through this hard time the staff informed the family of the progress of his condition and the medication his was given they made sure his ending of life was a peaceful one. Cant thank the staff enough for there care and support through this sad time. The surroundings are decorated in a light colour and the dining room is set in a welcoming manor it is just a caring and welcoming home which I would recommend to anyone who needs to be cared for and nursed in pleasing surroundings."
Betsy Tcarehome.co.uk rating: 4.83 out of 5
"My nan spent her last seven weeks at Thackeray House, until she passed away on 12th May. She was treated with so much kindness and dignity by all the staff. Although only seven weeks at Thackeray my opinion of the nursing home was second to none and I thank them from the bottom of my heart for how they cared for my wonderful nan."
Jon Rcarehome.co.uk rating: 5 out of 5
"Thackeray House was the most amazing, kind, caring home for my mums last 7 weeks of life. After a severe stroke mum could no longer go home to her flat. She lived at Thackeray House where she could not of been looked after and loved any better. They were also very supportive to all her family. It is a very scary time deciding what nursing home to choose and it was with great relief we could not of made a better decision for our wonderful mum."
June Rcarehome.co.uk rating: 5 out of 5
"Excellent care for my grandmother in her last months of life after she suffered a massive stroke. She needed continual care and this was provided to a very high standard. All carers and management staff were friendly, efficient, welcoming and very warm to both my grandmother and her visiting relatives. Excellent facilities available, although unfortunately due to my grandmother's condition she was unable to use them. A modern, clean and home-like room and entrance. Would highly recommend."
Victoria Lcarehome.co.uk rating: 4.92 out of 5
"My mother spent a month at Thackeray House before her death. I have nothing but praise for the care she received during this time and would not hesitate to recommend. The home is very well run with strong management and the carers looking after mum were exceptional - very professional and polite but also friendly, deeply caring and treated mum with great respect as an individual. It is never an easy decision to place a loved one into a home but felt confident that mum was being well looked after."
Chris Ccarehome.co.uk rating: 4.83 out of 5
"I found Barchester Thackeray House Care Home to have an excellent level of professionalism when my mother was in care The kindness and thoughtfulness of all the nursing staff that I wanted to see displayed towards my mother was there."
