Here's what the families of residents at Ambleside say about the home

When considering a nursing home, how do you know which one really lives up to their promises ?

We believe there is no better recommendation than those by the families of people living at Ambleside who have struggled themselves with the turmoil of having to make such a big decision.

Here are their views which are taken from www.CareHome.co.uk, the prime website for people looking for a care home.


My mother has recently taken up residence here and we would like to say how very pleased we are with the care being given to her by the wonderful staff at the home. Mum has Altziemer's and Dementia and has settled in very well and is now eating better than when in her own home. Many thanks for the excellent care and kindness being given to her.

My mother has been in Ambleside for more than 5 years. The care she receives is second to none. She is now bedridden but is treated with affection and respect. The staff are all polite and happy and this reflects in the service that they provide. I often pop in at different times and never once have I felt like I was a nuisance. I am always kept up to date with her moods and medical condition. I feel so lucky to have found a home like Ambleside and would highly recommend it to anyone.

My father has recently been having a few problems and is feeling quite unsettled due to a lot of staff changes. However, all the staff have continued to provide support as always. The staff will always contact me if they have any concerns, which I truly appreciate. My father seems to be more settled and a lot happier.
