My thanks to you all the team at Orchard House for the recent excellent care of my Dad.. JS IT gave me immense relief to know that he was safe and so well looked after while I was on holiday. He thoroughly enjoyed himself and the experience , which at 91, is worth noting. Also the ongoing long term care of my sister, AS. She is completely settled and happy I her environment which is of huge importance given her Alzheimer’s Disease. She is always well presented which for me is comforting because she had a lovely sense of fashion. There was a time when she designed and made her own clothes! Your staff appear happy at their work despite the many daily care challenges they must face. Their caring attitude is also much in evidence.. it is apparent that the residents are indeed individuals. Given that I have 2 members of my family at Orchard House it is heartening to feel the warmth and happy welcome given to visitors. For me personally you have been a lifeline.

All the staff were engaging, caring and the family knew this was not put on for our benefit. Also we saw lovely interaction between the staff and residents. Our dad enjoyed the food. Dad is a loner, preferring his own company or 1-1 and the staff recognised this and allowed him time on his own away from others. As a family we were very pleased with the care dad was given. Although dad always asked to come home he said everyone was lovely and he was well looked after.

The staff are very professional, tolerant, patient and attentive. All exuded a caring personal and a sense of humour. Porridge was especially good, the activities were good and singing together was good/uplifting. Staff were very responsive and sociable.

As a family we would like to thank you all for the wonderful care you gave our mum over the last 7 years. We all really appreciate your thoughtfulness and compassion especially with mum and us as a family over her last few days. It was heart warming to hear some funny stories about her and to know how much people liked her. I know caring for people long term is not easy but thank you all for giving her dignity and respect.

To Mags and everyone at Orchard House, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your wonderful care of my mum, during her short stay with you. Everyone was so kind and caring not just of my mum but of me and my family too. I have such respect for the work you do and want you to know how very much it is appreciated.

For the past three and half years i have been delighted to be part of the Orchard house team providing residents with a feel good hairdressing experience twice a week. Similar to what they would receive in my salon. All the staff create a friendly welcoming atmosphere. Helping sat mealtimes has allowed me to get to know the residents personally. Recently I joined the team on a sponsored walk for the residents it was a great experience and allowed us to raise money for our residents.
