Testimonials

Our friend has been a resident at Nazareth Lodge for over 2 years. We visit her regularly. During that time, we have been totally satisfied with the level of care she has received. The staff are very attentive and the food is good. Her room is modern and cleaned regularly. She is very contented and feels at home. I would have no hesitation in recommending Nazareth Lodge to others, as we have done in the past.

There is a lot of laughter there

Testimonials

When I walk into Nazareth Lodge and see the residents potting up hyacinths, up to their elbows in compost, it is indeed a joy to behold

Testimonials

Nazareth Lodge encourages a wide range of activities and outings - although my mother seemed to spend most of her time getting her hair done and having massages!

Testimonials

As a retired District Nurse of some years experience I was encouraged to discover such a well run home as Nazareth Lodge when we moved to the area some years ago.

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

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. 

Mr W, Relative

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

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

Testimonials

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

Care Chef 2014 award - the judges chose Suzie because she demonstrated a clear passion for flavours in every course of her meal. They felt her dishes were an honest reflection of the expertise currently enjoyed by the care sector

Testimonials

To know that mum spent her last few days/weeks surrounded by your care and kindness, as well as professionalism, gives me a huge sense of relief and peace. Thank you for everything.

LM, daughter

Testimonials

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

MB, Respite Guest

Testimonials

The last few weeks have been, to say the least, a bit of a roller coaster for my mother in law. For this period to end in the haven of Nazareth Lodge has seen our prayers answered and we could not be more grateful. Thank You.

Mr S, Relative

Social occasions at Nazareth Lodge were a treat and showed us just how everyone worked together cheerfully to provide the happiest possible environment.
