My 90-year-old Mother was finding it increasingly difficult living alone in the home she had been in for 53 years. She moved to Holmleigh and was initially very homesick. That was 5 weeks ago. Now she wouldn't want to be anywhere else.
It's impossible to single out any member of staff to commend as they are all wonderful. Mum can't fault the way she is being cared for and neither can we. Not all care homes feel like home. Not all care homes care. Holmleigh scores on both.
Mum has made new friends of both the staff and residents and is constantly telling us how well she is being looked after and that nothing is too much trouble. The way that any minor issues are communicated to me by the staff give me complete peace of mind that Mum is OK. If you are reading this you probably have some difficult decisions to make.
Choosing Holmleigh will be the right answer to one of them.
Holmleigh is an excellent home. The standards are high.
My mother was a resident for 2 1/2 years and was very happy there.
My mother is very happy at Holmleigh and often says that if she needs to be in a care home she is happy to be in Holmleigh.
The care is excellent and all her immediate and long-term needs are attended to. She does say that her room is small but it is adequate.
The main issue is that she is safe and feels well looked after.
The care given and the friendliness show to my mother by the staff and management at Holmleigh is very reassuring to me and my family.
Nothing is ever too much trouble for them.
My mother in law has been in the home for 2 years. The experience I have had has been fantastic. From the manager down to the odd job man, nothing is too much trouble.
When she's been unwell, they go above and beyond their duties. It is well clean, the food choice is excellent with plenty of choice.
