My elderly brother, who has Alzheimer's and inclusion body myositis, was omitted to Dunwood Manor Care Home on 14th July 2021. I knew my brother's condition had deteriorated and he had been in hospital so I had searched for a nursing home near to Romsey for him and my friend recommended Dunwood Manor as her father had been cared for by them.

The whole experience, which could have been awful as my brother is a difficult man, was made much more pleasant by the excellent staff and the manager who was always able to help and assist if I was struggling.

I have been so impressed with everyone who works at the home as they have all been wonderful and I know in time my brother will settle and become content and safe in the knowledge he is being well looked after and cared for. I cannot express my gratitude and thanks enough and I would recommend them to anyone looking to place an elderly relative in care as my experience has been both kind and comforting.

Dunwood Manor is an amazing care home which has gone above and beyond for my dear ex-neighbours. My friend was discharged from hospital to Dunwood back in February for end of life care, his wife of 75 years had never been without him, they were soul mates, added to this his wife had not left her home for twenty years.

Realising they could not be apart it was arranged for his wife to join him, all this during Covid, but the wonderful team arranged for them to be in a bubble and his wife could be with him all day whilst building up a relationship with the staff and her new surroundings.

When my friend passed away the staff again were amazing, they were supportive, caring and compassionate and absolutely wonderful in helping his wife through her grief and helping her adjust to her new life. A couple of months on and his wife is now joining in with the many activities and trips, she has made a friend in a new resident, today when I visited she was at a cheese/wine/music afternoon and came into the visitor's room humming along.   An outstanding care home.

After looking at a few care homes we found Dunwood Manor to be the most suited to our father's needs. It is set in beautiful grounds and has excellent caring staff with good communication. We are kept fully informed of our father's care and any issues that may crop up.

We would definitely recommend this care home.

Since my wife was admitted to Dunwood Manor some thirteen months ago I have found the care and attention afforded to her has been exemplary. Her somewhat unexpected confinement was a difficult enough situation to adjust to but it has been made very much easier by the very kind and caring attitude of the staff at all levels.

Access to see my wife has been made as easy as possible in these Covid ridden times but it is not difficult to see why those precautions were necessary and hopefully they will improve still further in due course. The home carries all of the right gradings and certification with attention being paid to personal needs and dietary requirements.

For families searching for a haven for an elderly relative then Dunwood Manor should be well in focus.
