Staff made it easy for us to visit and we always felt sure our mother was being well looked after with excellent food, impeccable hygiene and careful thought given to every aspect of what would be best for her individually.
Everyone has a friendly, caring approach and there is nothing that is too much trouble
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.
Although mum had little interest in food, it is right that even she recognised the excellent quality and diversity of food provided
Nazareth Lodge prides itself on the emphasis placed in keeping and training its own staff and this shows in the quality of service and attitude of the staff towards residents and visitors.
Deciding where my mother should live after our father died was one of the most difficult decisions we had to make. As a family we looked at many homes and were very impressed when we got to Nazareth Lodge with is friendly and professional staff from senior managers to the carers. The carers at Nazareth Lodge are very special individuals, picked for their kindness and empathy.
The residents at Nazareth Lodge are all treated as individuals and can do as much or as little as they wish.
When we first visited it seemed more like arriving at a small hotel or private house with the warmth of the welcome and reassurance this provided
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.
She enjoyed many of the activities organised in the home and I smile at the memory of her being asked to hold back to allow others to answer some questions for the crossword etc!

I would like to pay tribute to all your colleagues who devoted time and kindness in meeting Dad's needs and making him feel at home and always comfortable.
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.
Social occasions at Nazareth Lodge were a treat and showed us just how everyone worked together cheerfully to provide the happiest possible environment.
A thank you would in no way suffice for the reassurance and peace that everyone helped to give to me and others during the eight months that RW was with you.
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.
