It was daunting to select a brand new care home for my father, but the manager allayed any concerns when we visited before it was open. First impressions were that it was a hotel rather than a care home. The décor and furnishings were homely and of a high standard. It did not have the feel of being an institution, which was a fear of my father.
All the team are friendly and show an interest in him as person. They do not rush away. He says “they are marvellous” and “can’t do enough for you – no matter what it is”. He speaks to about 20 different people each day, which is good for him and he also enjoys participating in the well-organised activities such as quizzes, news and views, playing cards and board games, seated exercises and painting “ladybird stones” for the garden.
He says that food is excellent and plentiful and I have to agree as I joined him and other residents for a lovely Christmas Dinner.
Importantly he says he feels safe.
We have hit the jackpot with Cherry Wood.

We could not be more satisfied with the care our relative is receiving from Cherry Wood Grange.
The home is spotless, beautifully decorated, warm and friendly – all the staff are endlessly helpful and ensure we are kept up to date on our mum’s condition.
She has a lovely little garden, fenced off but accessible to the main large, well maintained outdoor area. Her room is beautifully kept and assistance is provided as she needs it, and there are always activities arranged that interest her during the day. She has a phone in her room which she uses every day and we are made very welcome whenever we visit. She is gaining weight and always looks beautifully groomed thanks to her weekly hairdressing and manicure treatments.
This is a lovely place which the whole family would heartily recommend.
We are here to help you and your family.
