My husband had been suffering cerebral vascular disease for more than 12 years. His mobility decreased until he could no longer walk. I had carers in to wash and dress him for 6 years. As he started to suffer from vascular dementia he had to go into a nursing home. The staff were so kind and positive at all times both to my husband and to me when I visited. He lived there for 9 months becoming weaker month by month until he died, receiving excellent palliative care. September 2014.
My wife has suffered over recent years major health problems culminating in an inoperable back condition and dementia problems. Her medical doctor and hospital advised 24 hour care home as she would not get this at home. I had my son and daughter search very quickly to find a suitable home which was difficult. I has previous knowledge of homes as I had an elderly relation in one some time ago, but I must admit it did have failings. We fortunately had luck in locating a vacancy ay the Kingswood Court Care Home which had all the facilities to meet ours and my wife’s criteria.She has now been in this home 5 months and we as a family have no complaints. June 2014.
The staff at Kingswood Court are excellent: I feel they treat my wife with great care and respect, and are always very attentive and friendly to me and my family and friends who visit. From the start I felt all the staff really treated my wife as an individual. The home is peaceful, clean, welcoming. I am really relieved that I found such a great home for my wife. May 2014.
