Mum was very happy here and the staff all helped to make her last few months the best they possibly could be. I really appreciate all the care and support for both Mum and myself and i cannot thank them enough. 

Mrs B, Relative of Resident

Testimonials

My husband is already a resident and I have spent two weeks in respite care. I have been wonderfully cared for and feel I have recovered very quickly. I cannot fault the staff, who are so caring and gentle and always cheerful. The food is lovely, well cooked and presented. There are plenty of activities organised and outings arranged for mobile residents. This is an excellent care home and its awards are well deserved.

JP, Respite Guest and Relative of Resident

Thank you all.

As a family we all know that everything after my father's death was handled brilliantly even down to a 'guard of honour' as his body left Nazareth Lodge.

JB, Son

Testimonials

We have had a lovely time at Nazareth Lodge Lunch Club on Friday 31st January. The meal was cooked lovely and we had seconds of the Scampi. The sponge pudding was very light and soaked in custard went down a treat. Thank you and we will be back next month.

Thank you to all the staff for an excellent evening last night. The food was delicious and there was a lovely atmosphere. I have to remind myself sometimes that its a care home! I think Ma is beginning to feel that it's home for her. We're very pleased. 

Mrs CJ, Resident's daughter

Testimonials

I have to thank you especially for the care and support you all gave my father in his last few days. I have related stories to friends with elderly parents that your night staff for instance were singing with him during the long hours of darkness. They couldn't believe it.

JB, Son

Everyone has a friendly, caring approach and there is nothing that is too much trouble

MB, Respite Guest

Testimonials

Nazareth Lodge was calm, clean, warm and homely and meeting the Management and staff reinforced my feeling I was doing the right thing by introducing Mum to this potential new home to look after her needs

TC, Relative

Testimonials

Prior to my uncle's eventual arrival 10 weeks ago, the management of the home were superb in their support for us during a difficult time and arranging the transport from a hospital a few counties away. Thanks to the staff he has settled in well and we are pleased our initial very good impressions of the home have been borne out.

DP, Nephew

JW, Volunteer Visitor

Testimonials

Thank you so much for a very pleasant Cheese and Wine evening yesterday. We regularly see some of the residents, but it was nice to meet other relatives and friends. We are sure our Aunt appreciated us coming, and of course, joining in with the cheese and wine tasting!

PL, Nephew

Testimonials

I have spoken with my brother and sister and it goes almost without saying that we are extremely grateful to all the staff at Nazareth Lodge for the way in which they looked after our mother. We are not surprised by the award of an outstanding classification and no doubt a lot was due to the standard of care provided by the staff.
