"My husband was made very welcome on arrival and all the staff were so kind and helpful. He enjoyed his stay and said the food was excellent. As it was his first time in respite, he was a bit confused. The only criticism is the TV was not in a good position to view from the armchair."

"Mum was in the home temporarily for her delirium which was very bad. Though the overall experience has been a bad one in her mind, due to the illness, the staff took excellent care of her, keeping me informed every step of the way, including when she was rushed to hospital in the early hours twice in one week. After a few weeks, they literally brought my mum back from the dark place she was in, looked after her brilliantly. Due to covid and distance from the home, it was difficult for me to visit so a visit had to be booked many weeks in advance, but this was a small matter. The visiting pod was lovely and you almost forgot the glass partition was there at all. Mum has since left Werrington for a permanent place nearer me but I won't forget what the wonderful staff did for her and how well they cared for her, especially Mabel. I was also very very impressed at being asked how I was when I called too. Good to regard family especially with Delirium cases so thank you."

"This care home via all staff, whatever their position or function, consistently provide the highest standards of care and compassion one could wish for. Please note because of Covid restrictions, one cannot enter the building so some marks are given as 'good' and not 'excellent' because of this."

"The experience I and my family found was really good. All the staff, carers nurses and everyone was friendly, welcoming and helpful. When you phone whoever answers the phone was friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. My mum always looked clean and well cared for. During lockdown when you phoned it was never too much trouble and had time for you. My mum's end of life care was excellent, the nursing staff kept me informed and caring. I was allowed to see my mum and my family. We have nothing but praise and thanks for there work."

"Since coming to Werrington Lodge at the end of April this year I have been made to feel very welcome. I have found the staff very caring and friendly, they have looked after all my nursing needs. The facilities and activities are good. The food is enjoyable and nothing is too much trouble to accommodate my dietary needs. Everyone works extremely hard to make every day a pleasant experience for the residents."

"Until I stayed after a hip operation last Mach I had no idea how dedicated and hardworking the care staff is. I visited my husband almost daily before that, but it gave me no idea of all that goes into caring for a person, although I had taken care, with home help, of my husband at home. I found the lunches delicious and the care and staff marvelous! Everywhere always lovely and clean. My husband is happy to be so well looked after in the care home. I teased the staff I would b emoving in. They said to take their holidays! I can be difficult you see!"

"I visit my friend every week. The home is always clean and fresh. Staff are all friendly. Generally, all looks very comfortable. I would highly recommend the home to anybody."

"I feel there should be more staff, day and night. I am a frequent visitor and see the need for more staff when residents are upset and distressed or wandering. The activity room is an excellent facility, not being utilised because of a lack of staff. It should be a place to go for residents, for a change of scenery, or quiet time or nice music. There definitely needs to be more daily music. The bath needs replacing, residents need to be able to bath at least once a week, not working hardly from August 2019 to present. The new management team give me confidence things will improve."

"I have found all of the staff at all levels to be considerate, helpful, kind and knowledgeable. Again all staff seem to be there because they choose to be and not a case of 'this job until I get a better offer'. Quite happy and relieved that my mother is in the best possible place she could be."

"My husband has been in Werrington Lodge Care Home for over 5 months. He was taken there at my request from hospital. I remember the senior carer comforting me as I was upset with him having to go into a nursing home as I couldn't cope anymore ( I had for 7 years). She said the staff care and they certainly do. Residents are cared for very well."

"What a breath of fresh air this home is after a bad experience in a previous home to find such a peaceful, calm and pleasant surroundings was a wish come true. From management staff to nursery carers and helpers all with such high standards. The food you couldn't ask for better, freshly baked biscuits in the afternoon who could ask for more. I thank my lucky stars that my husband was taken into their care. What a difference in him. Unbelievable. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart."

"I was attracted to a poster displayed in my local Tesco inviting people who are lonely to visit. I went along and was warmly welcomed and was offered lunch. This was in June 2017. I have visited twice and made friends with both staff and residents. I cannot comment on the rooms etc. as I chat to the residents in the lounge and dining room and all appear happy and well looked after."

"I find the staff very helpful. My wife's room is always spotlessly clean, her room looks out onto the gardens which are very nice as she can see the birds, she is bed ridden and spends all her time in bed. The food is very good, breakfast, lunch and dinner, tea and biscuits in the afternoon, myself included or other visitors. Reception very welcoming."

"It was a hard decision to put my husband in a home. Werrington Lodge has helped put my mind at ease. When I visit I feel like part of a family. My husband's dementia has got a lot worse, but the staff are caring and tolerant. Every one of the staff and managers fusses over me when I arrive."

My family and I would like to thank everyone at Werrington Lodge for their really kind and sensitive care of Keith during the short time he was with you. We feel that everyone went the extra mile in the way you cared for him
