"The care for my daughter and support offered to my family has been exceptional. The nurses are calm, confident and make sure you are fully informed and involved when there is a medical change. They never make us feel that we are being over anxious, even when we are. The carers are lovely. They treat my daughter like a young woman, pay attention to her hair and personal hygiene and talk to her normally, with warmth and humour, even though she can't respond. We worried that her inability to communicate might result in pain or discomfort being ignored but the staff are excellent in picking up non-verbal communication. We feel we can trust the staff to anticipate her needs and provide for them. The ability to get tea and coffee at any time is welcome. The administrator seems to know each resident by name and nothing is ever too much trouble. I like the fact that the manager makes herself available and is visible and that visiting is permitted 24/7 - signs of a well-managed home."

"My mother was a resident at Wilsmere House since March 2017. Throughout her residence she was extremely well cared for, always looked relaxed, clean and smart. Unfortunately, mum lost her battle with her illness in August and the home was excellent with her end of life care. They kept the family well informed and involved. Mum passed away peacefully in no pain or distress with my sister and I. Mum was supported well and unobtrusively by the lovely, caring staff and we have been advised and supported by the home, following her passing."

"I would recommend this care home to anyone who needed one because they looked after my brother to a very high standard from start to finish. The staff were very loving and caring towards their patients, and their relatives. They were always there when you needed them, they know their jobs and they all did it well without any complaints from the staff or me. Even in my brothers last days, they knew what they were doing and done it professionally when we as a family were all over the place. At the end, my brother went peacefully with dignity and respect and I can't thank the staff at Wilsmere House enough for all that they did. Thank you."

"I cannot praise the home highly enough and this is purely due to the amazing care from all the staff on Whitegate Ward at Wilsmere House. One comment I must offer is that the workload appears to be overwhelming for the staff but their dedication and care under such demanding circumstances is remarkable. It brings admiration, gratitude and peace to residents families."

"As soon as we entered the home we were made to feel very welcome and felt assured that my godfather would be well looked after. The staff were always friendly and really cared for the residents, rather than just being a job. I would recommend Barchester Wilsmere whole-heartedly."

"Mum came into Wilsmere just over two years ago. She has always been treated with warmth, dignity and respect. Although mum had dementia, she was content and settled at Wilsmere and felt at home. I am very grateful to all the staff for their kindness and dedication."

"My sister was admitted in July 2017, she is cared and looked after extremely well according to her needs. She is kept clean, clothes are washed regularly. Her room and bed covers regularly changed. I would fully recommend Wilsmere House as the staff are so caring, friendly and compassionate to my sister. She is in a home from home. Excellent."

carehome.co.uk rating: 5 out of 5

"Mum had been in another home but it was closing down. As mum was moving to an unknown home I had concerns of what it would be like. I found all the staff to be very proficient and caring from the nurse who was with mum when she passed away 2 hours before we could get to the home and to one member of staff whose support and outside the box help were beyond words."

Sarah J
carehome.co.uk rating: 4.75 out of 5

"We always had a beautiful welcome from staff, when we visited accompanied with an update on the resident's progress and stated of health. When we had any queries, they were addressed immediately. It would be unfair of me to name any one member of staff as they all contribute to make the resident we visit as comfortable as possible."

carehome.co.uk rating: 4.73 out of 5

"Sadly, our family friend passed away just over a week after moving to Wilsmere. However, during his brief stay there, the staff could not have been more caring and attentive towards him, making sure he was comfortable and content. Their support to us as visitors was also outstanding - compassionate and supportive. We would not hesitate to recommend Wilsmere."

"My uncle has been a resident here for the past four years, nursing staff and carers have been excellent I could not have asked for more. Thank you to you all for your kindness over the past four years."

"If you're looking for a care home, either for respite care or a permanent resident, you won't find better care. All the staff go to great lengths to ensure both resident and family are happy at all times."

"I cannot explain how relieved I felt when leaving my husband for respite because the care received was exceptional - gentle, patient and warm. The front foyer is so welcoming where visitors can have coffee and cake anytime, which is actually very important and eases the visiting hours at sad times. All the staff are amazing, so kind, friendly, supportive, with time for everyone including visitors. Bravo Wilsmere - be proud of all you achieve to ease the lives of everyone needing care."

"Everybody here has been kind, understanding caring and friendly. They are all like one big happy family. The food was excellent and there was not one unhappy resident! If my mother has to stay in a care home again it MUST be this one as I know she will be safe and well looked after. Thank you to everyone who looked after her."

"On the whole, we as a family are very pleased with the care that our father receives. The staff work very hard to ensure his wellbeing and we feel confident that our father is well looked after. The staff have also proved to act quickly if there are any concerns e.g when dad was recently admitted to hospital for suspected sepsis."

"My mother has been a resident here now for over a year. Every time I visit, the staff have always been friendly and extremely accommodating. Staff are always willing to help and if there are ever any problems or issues, they never fail to let me know. Mum is always clean and well looked after and has settled in well."

"My daughter is happy in Wilsmere House and that is enough for me. I, as a parent, need to know that my daughter is safe, happy and comfortable when I am not around and I have found this to be the case over the years."

"My brother has been in the care of Wilsmere for about 2 months. We are very happy with everything they have been doing for him. They have achieved things which we didn't think were possible."

"My brother has been a service user at the Willsmere Care Home for nearly 3 years. I have no major concerns in regard to how the care home is run. However, I was concerned at the lack of communication from staff when the fire alarm went off a few weeks ago. There were no clear procedures in place in regards to where visitors should go or evacuation of service users. I believe there should be routine procedures placed in each room."

carehome.co.uk rating: 3.25 out of 5

"Excellent care and wonderful nurses. The facilities are nice and the rooms comfortable."

"My Grandmother was a resident at Wilsmere for over three years. Generally, her care was good. She had some excellent care given by some although not all, as with many care homes, staff come and go and some people are not interested in the people. It is very important, especially with dementia that good relationships are formed. The management staff varied. Some more committed than others. Overall a good experience, with good nursing care."

"My good friend was a resident at Wilsmere House Care Home since December 2015. Sadly, he passed away this month. He received the best care possible. The staff were very professional, kind and patient. Nothing was too much for them. They were always respectful and very attached to the needs of the residents, sometimes during very challenging episodes. I cannot but praise the care my friend received while a resident at Wilsmere House."

"My mother was cared for well and looked after well. The arrangement for the G.P. was good and the G.P. looked after her well as well. Especially I appreciate the nurse in charge and all the other nurses who cared and gave her medication in time. All the supporting staff and others are very kind and treated and cared for my mother well. Managers and assistant managers and all the management team are good and provided a great service to my mother. Overall the service is great. The building is very neat and clean."

"My uncle was at the behest of various care homes until Wilsmere agreed they were happy to accommodate him. The was the best decision as we found the level of care and attention was excellent. The staff were a delight and I have no complaints."

Michael A
carehome.co.uk rating: 4.75 out of 5

"As an advocate, it is very important for me to have an open and supportive relationship with the home. I find the care manager and staff very open to feedback and put into action my recommendations to improve the quality of care. I find the care to be kind and very sensitive to the needs of the residents. Of course, they can always improve in dementia knowledge in the interest of residents but overall, I would recommend this home!!"

"My relative has been resident at Wilsmere House since February 2016 and her physical health and appearance have been completely transformed for the better thanks to the care and attention that she has received. The staff all treat her with great kindness and respect. She enjoys her meals and activities, particularly those that involve music. Her room is not large, but she only uses it as a bedroom, preferring to spend the day in the large and comfortable lounge. I would not hesitate to recommend this care home."

Nicholas B

"My husband has LBD and Parkinsons and went into Wilsmere House at the end of July and sadly passed away on the 15th of October. He had the best care possible and the staff were always kind and helpful, not only to him but to us, his family. In fact, they all became like our own family. The only negative thing is that the staff were extremely overworked and there were not enough to them to do this wonderful and needed job. I would certainly recommend this care home."
