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

I have been visiting my cousin for a few months now and am very happy to see the level of care has been extremely high all that time. There have been many improvements to the home in the last few months which only make it a better place to live and visit.

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 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!

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.

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.

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.

TC, Relative

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.
