"Following a fall at home, hospitalisation and rehabilitation proved inadequate for my mother.
Thistle Hill was one of only four care homes in North Yorkshire that could accommodate her with 24hour nursing. After inspection, we felt this was the only home that fully met her needs. She is immobile, doubly incontinent and has dementia.
The staff were extremely helpful when my husband and I visited. They were able to accommodate mum immediately. She has a pleasant room which was freshly decorated for her with new furniture and curtains.
She appears to be in a 'happy place' in her mind, even though she does not know where she is and is living in the past.
We visit regularly, although not on set days, and she is always clean and tidy. The care that she is receiving appears to be excellent and we could not wish for more for her.
The staff are always kind and helpful."
