However, I have been amazed at the transformation in her since she came here; she seems much happier and more sociable now than I have ever known, and I put this down to the warm, friendly and reassuring care that she receives. I can't praise the staff and management enough; thank you for putting my mind at rest at last and for caring for Mum so well."

  • "I just wanted to say that my daughter and I had a very pleasant week with Mum. She seems very content and we loved celebrating her birthday with the staff and residents. Lucky for us D.P. was there - it made it very special. We took her to the Red Lion for lunch. 'J' bugged her a bit about her age and she hid her birthday card with the number on it as she has always kept her age a secret - this was lovely to see as some things don't change even with dementia. A big thank you and to all the staff. I mentioned to 'W' how great it is to see all the residents come to life when there is an entertainer. She suggested I put it in an email. I think I have mentioned to you that following the death of my brother 16 years ago my mum had said she was too sad to sing but right from her first afternoon at Willow Tree Lodge she has been joyfully singing and dancing along to all the tunes sung to the residents. It's really great to see. I know that without the entertainment she would feel bored and depressed. It is a welcome distraction from her failing memory and gives her day a purpose."


    18th October 2018

  • "Finding a suitable Care Home for a close loved one is a daunting task. However, my concerns were immediately allayed by Sarah Monroe and her team. They showed a consistently high level of care and were always willing to adapt where required. The staff were always welcoming to me (and my dog), with an open hours policy for visiting at any time without notice! The standard of cleanliness was second to none, and nice touches were the daily fresh flowers throughout the home, programme of entertainment and events, and accommodating residents own personal items of furniture in their rooms. I have already recommended Willow Tree to a number of people (including Solicitors), and will continue to do so."

  • "Following the death of my uncle in March my aunt asked me to find her a good care home. She stipulated that it was to be near my home and within easy reach of the rest of the family. We could not be happier with the home we found in Willow Tree Lodge the staff are friendly, helpful and nothing is too much trouble for them. My aunt has settled in very well and seems pleased with her new home."


    20th June 2018

All the Staff I have seen engaged with Mum have been caring, understanding and patient. They have clearly been able to provide my Mum with confidence in them and she has responded accordingly. Communication: Excellent. Sarah in particular has been pro active in engaging the family in terms of providing feedback / updates and making suggestions on how we could support Mum's transition to Willow Tree. General environment / facilities: Excellent. Willow Tree manages to operate with a climate of calmness and support focused on the residents. A member of the staff can always be readily found and they respond swiftly to any 'Call button' request. Rooms are well kept / maintained. Summary: I am very pleased we were able to secure accomodation at Willow Tree Lodge for my Mum. The Management and Staff have provided a massive level of comfort to my family and I."

  • "The family searched long and hard to find somewhere we could happily place our relative to be looked after, we found that place in Willow Tree Lodge. In the last 4 years he has received the best attention we could have hoped for. I think that all the lovely staff do one of the hardest jobs in the world looking after not only the patient but the whole family and they help to make life a little more bearable for all concerned. It is very hard to watch someone you love loose themselves completely, and for the love they have shown I thank them from the bottom of my heart."

She's always so happy when I go in and is very well looked after. The home itself is modern clean and bright with a beautiful garden. I cannot fault it and would definitely recommend it to others.

  • "My Wife and I live in Spain and probably visit Mum 3/4 times a year plus phone calls to the nursing home. On every occasion we have been very well received and introduced to the staff who have made us most welcome. Mum has always given an impression of being happy at Willow Tree and that shows in her outlook. She can sometimes be difficult given her illness but all the staff take this in their stride with their training. The conditions she lives in are nothing short of excellent and the high standards are evident for all to see and consistent . We would be more than pleased to recommend the home to others. Coming back to this now we have completed the options which we have rated all as excellent simply because that is the case.

  • "I knew Nan would be happy there from the moment we looked around it 4 years ago. Nothing old about it apart from the old people in it, which I knew would suit Nan. Always clean, fresh flowers and a cheery welcome. Loved & cared for by the staff who have felt, at times, like family too. Unfortunately Nan passed away 9th March. I have nothing but complete respect and total appreciation for all the lovely staff who made her as comfortable as possible, just how Nan liked. While doing this they supported the whole of our family during this upsetting and tiring time. We were able to spend as much time as we liked with Nan and they ensured we were looked after too. Thank you so much to all of you, the carers & the cooks too who always made just what she fancied and the house keeping staff who she loved to chat with! I'm welling up writing this because as far as I'm concerned you're all angels in disguise. It's the care, compassion & commitment you show that makes it more than just a job!

My husband and I as family were given support as well. The home staff were always welcoming and attentive to his needs and kept us fully informed of the situation.

Visitors are always made welcome and management and all staff are professional, totally competent and unfailingly cheerful. It is a care home that genuinely care for all residents.

  • "Dad lived at Willow Tree for four years. I am so glad that we found Willow Tree. I always felt that the management and all the staff really cared about my Dad and that they actually enjoyed spending time with him. There were always frequent activities, including lots of music, which Dad always loved. The home is always very clean and bright. It always felt like Dad's home and we were always warmly welcomed when visiting him. There was regular contact from the Team regarding Dad's care/ health etc. We, as a family, were given support as well as Dad - including meetings about Dad's care plan, wishes for end of life etc. Obviously, because Dad had Alzheimer's, his health was gradually declining during his time at WT. The Team responded brilliantly to Dad's changing needs. The Palliative care given at the end was amazing - both supporting Dad, and us as a family. We owe a huge debt of gratitude. Thank you all...... you were amazing!

My father was here for a number of years and during that time was happy and settled. The home is very clean and modern and the staff friendly and attentive. Dad enjoyed all the activities the home offered and the food! As relatives, we were always made to feel like it was his home and welcomed at any time. I would recommend without hesitation. Thank you!

  • "I am extremely impressed with this care home. Our relative, in fact all residents are happy, alert and very well looked after. The infrastructure is always immaculate and constantly being maintained and improved. The staff are always attentive and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. I have supplied the care home with memorabilia, wall plates, pictures etc which have great significance to our relative and within a day these have been put up in his room, giving him much pleasure. The gardens are beautifully maintained and accessible for the benefit and enjoyment of residents. A mini bus is often booked to take the residents out for a few hours. I can find no fault with Willow Tree Lodge.

  • "You've seen the other reviews so you know this care home is good. When my father died we had to find professional help for my mother - Alzheimer's and other medical issues. My Aunt and I visited 5 other care homes in the area and Willow Tree Lodge was just the most welcoming and lovely place to see. My mother has been there for a while now and she is the happiest I have seen her for years. Unfortunately she no longer recognises me as her son but it is so great to visit when we can (time and distance are a problem) to have tea and biscuits with a lovely lady in pleasant surroundings. I have considered moving her nearer to us but we would run the risk of seeing her more often in a much worse place. The management and staff are wonderful and worth every penny. My mum is in great hands, while the funds last. This is what I want when the dementia catches up with me as it most likely will.

The care he receives is excellent and tailored to his individual needs. He enjoys his meals and is stimulated by the activities provided for residents. The management and staff of Willow Tree Lodge are skilled, competent and very friendly. Nothing is too much trouble when caring for residents or dealing with family concerns. Willow Tree Lodge provides high-quality care in an attractive environment.

Apart from Dementia, Mum also has hearing and sight impairment and therefore has a high falls risk. Everything possible has been put in place to make sure that she stays safe at all times. All of the staff are very welcoming, thoughtful and kind. The home has a lovely happy atmosphere and although it took my mum a little while to settle in, it is wonderful to see how content she has become.

The carers, catering, housekeeping and management have the most wonderful attitude to all the residents. They are warm, caring, good humoured, respectful, well managed, genuine and compassionate. I cannot praise them highly enough for the work they do. The quality of food is first class and the care is given with such kindness and affection. They are just superb with both residents and relatives. It is a difficult time deciding to let someone else help with the care of a loved one. Willow tree do it remarkably well.

The staff show every care and attention to all my mothers needs. They are always very kind and caring, not just with the everyday care needs, but also comforting her and re-assuring her on a daily basis. I could not ask for better care for my mother, and I know that I can talk to any member of staff and management whenever required. It is a great comfort to me and my family to know that my mother is receiving the very best of care.

The accommodation was hotel standard, the food out of this world and the care was excellent. After spending much of my time looking around various care homes and getting very frustrated with quality or lack of it, to walk into Willow Tree was a breath of fresh air. It was light and airy, happy and helpful staff who could not have done more. Willow Tree Lodge is perfect in every way. Thank you.

Housekeeping, catering and carers are well managed, motivated and competent. They try always to recognise and respond to individual needs and they do this with respect and good humour and kindness towards residents and families. My mother at 94 is very well cared for physically, emotionally and socially at Willow Tree Lodge. This is a difficult stage in life and having confidence in the organisation makes it so much easier for families.

The activities were excellent I know mum enjoyed most of the entertainment. The only reason mum left was because she is now in a Nursing Home. Once again a big thank you for looking after mum.

  • "My father was at Willow for 15 months and the care he received was excellent, the staff were first class, even when he became quite grumpy and difficult they maintained a professional attitude towards him, it was due to his failing health and the need for nursing which ended his stay or I would have been happy for him to end his days there. The rooms are modern and spacious and the food always looked and smelt lovely. The team of staff were always very welcoming and approachable with any issues or concerns I had.
